OOOOHHH Compression stockings. Do they have iodine stains on them? Mine did. I got in trouble with the head nurse because I cannot stand to have my feet covered. Despite being totally immobile I was able to slip them down from my thighs to my feet and off. This meant I was stuck in a plastic sleeve from a compression machine. They couldn't get me out. LOL I am sockless at work; sockless at home. I hate socks. If I had my way I would be barefoot all the time.
You will be very tired for a long time. You have had an enormous shock to your body as well as a huge dose of drugs. As they work out of your body, you will feel stronger but honest - six weeks before it's all gone.
Enjoy your rest. Wish I could nap whenever I feel like it.
