Hi,
How are you? Compression stockings usually improve blood flow in the legs and reduce the risk for complications of blood clots. There are more compression stockings available in the market and variants such as compression leggings and compression tights and pantyhose. It is best that you discuss this with your attending physician for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
