    Compression adhesion? What nonsense!
    But there is on here! Elevation: the do's and dont's

    - if you are a knee patient, never have a bundle of pillows or a cushion hard behind the knee or belly of the calf as it causes compression which might assist the development of blood clots, especially in the early days post-op

    I meant there was nothing like "compression adhesion" on Google.
