Compression wraps

Hi I wear the compreboot compression wraps as far as my upper calfs. I do have them for right up to the top of my thigh but as i have osteoarthritis in both knees I wear different supports on my knees and I can't wear the thigh ones at the moment as I have a broken pelvis.

Currently I usually wear them from when I get up until I go to bed. I also take furosemide 1 a day. But for the last few weeks I have been unable to reduce my swelling my doctor has increased my furosemide to 3 a day in the hope that that would work which it hasn't. I know that having to be immobile as possible for my pelvis to heal isn't helping, but I wondered how long other wore their wraps and would it be worth me wearing them at night as well.
