I have been wearing a class 3 stocking all day every day and my leg is now as close to normal size as it can get. The problem is I have recently changed jobs and I now spend much more time at a desk throughout the day. Since starting the job I have noticed that my leg is aching a lot more and that if I tense the muscles it feels as if they are spasming slightly and cramps up. My LE is secondary due to a sarcoma in my thigh and I have a large scar from the surgery which took away around 50% of my inner thigh muscle.
I am wondering if now that my LE is under control, I could reduce the compression level and still maintain the size, whilst getting rid of the pain which I can only put down to the compression being too much whilst I'm spending a large amount of time at a desk?!
Has anyone had any similar experience?
I'm due to see both my surgeon and LE nurse over the next month for routine check ups, so will ask them but if anyone can offer any advice it would be appreciated.
