Stockings...and not the good kind!

I need to make people aware that I am still wearing horrendous surgical, hold-up, white, anti-embolism stockings after my operation. I have been wearing them for four weeks now and have another two weeks to go. They are absolutely hellish and hot and they ruck up behind my knees in the night and cause welts. Surely the are supposed to stop blood clots, not cause them?

Oh dear you have had a rotten time of it all lately eh? Then they give you even more torture to wear!

I know the feeling, having worn them myself! But never for six weeks! Two at the most. Never mind, almost there:0) I just hope for your sake, we don't have a heat wave while you are wearing them. That would be unbearable!

You don't need to look so happy about it Babs, it's awful...I say AWFUL! And to top it off, Emily says my bum hangs over the top of the stockings. How jolly rude!

I well remember my "stockings"YUK! YUK! YUK! AND I wore them day and night for SIX MONTHS!! Right through the summer too.They were full length and attached to a waist band. I'm so sorry to hear you are not making Bears anymore, but loved reading of all your escapades. I love browsing the Op. Shops, but I've run out of places to hide them from Hubby, and will NEver live long enough to make use of them.

Yuk. and nothing at all the day of the camera which will be at 12.30pm Glum, glum bum, nothing to munch for almost two days.

No wonder I had a problem, it's a GOOGLE password you need and I was looking for my YAHOO one. What a wally!! Oh well, I'm here now!
Oooh mate those stockings are mean. Due to my clotting disorder I have some in the drawer. Not great. I feel for you. I've only worn them for a couple of weeks at the most too, you poor thing.
I've found some more beads - actually it's an old bag of beaded lace for ya, I'll post it later xx
