My MIL has bad swelling in her leg. She has been to the doctor multiple times with no resolve. She has had many tests and ultrasounds. They give her diuretics and they don't work. The last doctor mentioned compression stockings, but told her she would not be able to put them on herself because of her stroke-effected hand. I believe I am going to have to go over to her house every morning every day and get these on her. I need some advice as how to get them on as fast as possible. I have to do this before I go to work so it has to be quick as possible. Also, I don't know a lot about these, she went and bought these from a special store that sells them. She says the lady there told her she had lymphedema. She put them on her and she felt better right away. She was told to take them off at night. Do they really have to be on every single day? Will this be forever or does it get better? The lady sold her two of them, so I think it is actually only for the one leg. Will the other leg swell too if only one has the stocking on? She was also sold special soap to wash these. How often do they need to be replaced? Will they get gross very quickly? Thanks in advance to anyone who has advice to share.
