My hubby took me to get measured for compression hose today.:victory: My doctor said I could get any length I wanted. I got the least strong 15-20, but still plenty of strength. I had hoped they would help, but they really DID seem to, shocked me. Kept my heart rate around 108 standing and walking. I took them off to take my bath and the top of my ankle had two dark lines where your feet flexes when you pull it back. HUM. My feet and toes were fine and no line on the calf. My doctor said they should not make a mark, for safety/blood flow. I guess I have to call her Monday. It has gone away now, but I was wondering if this happened to any of you. You know where your foot bends, top. I was so happy until I saw that. The lady measured me. I want to wear them. They are Mediven brand. I was so happy to see results.
