Going for foot impressions for new arch supports...
Friday, August 16, 2013
My feet hurt so much I broke down and put the old ones in as I was limping and feeling somewhat terrible in general. It helped but it will be nice to have properly fitting inserts again. As soon as this is taken care of I am going to attempt to get my old compression stockings on and if they are too tight I will need to be remeasured and hopefully will not have to go back to wrapping my legs to get the swelling down. I had stopped using the compression hose due to 2 hand surgeries and then an abdominal hernia repair, then 3 separate toe nail removals and finally the recent broken wrist bone (put in cast for 6 weeks). Anyone who has ever put on these devices (compression hose) knows you need strong hands to put them on. I recall how much better my legs and feet felt when I wore these and I am anxious to start again, even though they are a nuisance to put on. Maybe
some day a new kind of compression hose can be invented that isn't so difficult to put on
