That does make sense! I thought about doing the same, but they were so difficult to get on I didn't want to go through that hassle every day. I'm glad I didn't have to wear them the full 30 days, and I'll remember that for the next knee.I hated my compression socks too! The hospital measured my ankle to assess the size required and told me I should wear them for two weeks. But they were always tight for my calf and when my knee swelled then the top of the compression socks really cut in and was terribly painful. I decided to abandon them all together and it was such a relief! I’m no expert but it would seem more sensible to remove the compression socks whenever you can lie down with your legs raised (including at night) and wear them in the day if you are on your feet.
