I just entered my one month since left knee replacement. My biggest complaint is the compression stockings. They make me claustrophobic and I almost get panic attacks when I wear them which is usually 8 am-8pm. My doctor recommends 6 weeks in the stockings but I have been to outpatient pt 5 x already, am driving, walking up and down stairs and feel relatively good. Except for the indentions on my legs from these compression hose, I am very satisfied with my recovery. Any suggestions about the hose very welcome!!
