You should continue to wear the compressive garment provided for a period of six weeks. Generally, the garment should be worn 24 hours a day for the first four weeks and during the daytime hours the final two weeks. At some point, based on the swelling cessation, Dr. Lambruschi will instruct you to go out and purchase and shaper garment to wear instead of the garment. This will be easier to hide under your clothes, and much more comfortable.
