Post-surgery compression: how to use and take care

The garment is applied directly to the patient after surgery. The compression garment is usually worn continuously for several weeks as recommended by a physician individually. Everyone experiences the feeling of compression differently, but in general, compression should not be the cause of pain.

Your garment should fit snugly, but you should be able to slip a finger under the fabric.
