Effects of compression garment?

Postby Wendy » Mon Nov 25, 2013 6:34 am

About an hour after I remove my compression garment my left feeling like it is encased in ice, yet it is warm to the touch. Then it begins to burn, throb and ache. I am to the point now I no longer want to wear my compression because of the truly terrible way I feel after I remove it. Has anyone else experiences something like this?

Yes Wendy. I started using the circadian Velcro wrap instead of the unbearable compression stocking.

I'm a little lost, as I haven't visited this site since Pat died. Who are managing it now? I wish them the best,
