Question: I am almost a week post-EVLT and will be resuming exercise soon. Should I wear my compression stockings while working out? Also, are there any things I should be aware of prior to working out?
Answer: Post procedure instructions in our practice state that after EVLT, let comfort and support be your guide. We encourage patients to be as active as possible after intervention, however, other providers are a bit more conservative in their instructions. At one week out, you will likely have a bit of stiffness and discomfort with strenuous exercise, but you are not doing anything to damage or delay your recovery in doing so.
