c-section ladies- ?

did you bring or did they give you compression stockings?

I read an article about them helping the blood flow after surgery- and I know some hospitals do it- I'm going to ask my doc tomorrow but I wasnt sure if anyone had them recently (I know I didnt get them the last time...)

    I had the puffer things on for a little while, but they were taken off when I promised to get up and walk. I didn't have any stockings or anything.

    The hospital provided them (EDIT: the same puffer things - I had no idea what to call them) after surgery but once I was really up and walking (the next day) I no longer needed them.

    They put compression stockings on before the surgery. I did not put them on myself. Then they used both the stockings and air stockings until I was up and walking the next day.

    They put the things like blood pressure cuffs on my legs for a day after. After that, nothing. They never even mentioned it to me to be honest!

    I had the blood pressure-like cuffs during surgery and for the rest of that day.  The next morning I had compression stockings put on and had them on until the day before I left.  They made my legs itchy!
