Compressive socks?
Permalink   


Hi to all,

I am DAK wannabe. I am certain about the amputation, but not rushing into it.

I have been bandaging my legs with compressive "tape" (in lack of better name) few months now, but it is not really reliable because if bandaged too tight (the way I want it) it is moving when you walk, sit, etc.

So I wanted to invest into compressive socks. Idea is to wear them and hopefully after years of wearing them it will cause bad circulation and eventually amputation.

While I had no problems buying compressive "tapes" in the pharmacy faking story about the old neighbor, buying compressive socks is a bit trickier. Because it can cause serious medical problems, they require person to come there for measuring legs and then socks go to manufacturing.

Where (how) can I get these compressive socks without taking measures and simple cash and carry?

Thanks

Hello young wannabe,

Compressive socks are actually ment to improve circulation.

However they are available at pretty much any pharmacy. Walmart, CVS, Walgreens. But just to let you know that they are about $20 to $30 a pair.

Some specialty pharmacy's have better ones that are better fitted to you and they have more compression or less compression but they're like $50 a pair.

Also you don't need a prescription for them so no need to make up stories. People that work at a cash register usually don't care why you're buying anything lol.

Hello. I have been ordering stumpsocks at an online shop in Germany. They are like a sock of high quallity skin coloured material with a band which is normaly put around your wait and closed with velcro. Wat I do is just bent my legs, so they are like stumps and close the band loosely with the velcro and then just slide them over my "stumps". As far as they go, this is pretty far because they cover my feet. And because of that they are kind of stuck. It gives a pretty comfortable feeling. Kind of like your folded leg becomes one limb or stump. I use them at home when I come back from work. I just put my underwear (boxershort) over them, and when I stay awake still something like a joggingpants. Possibly with the legs sewn shut. I also wear them when I go to bed and they are quite comfortable. It takes some time, but after a while you can wear them nicely for 4 or 5 hours. THen in the beginning I would wake up and take them off because of the pain. Nowadays I do not really wake up anymore but take them off naturally in my sleep. In the morning when I wake up, I put them on again. Usually I keep them on making and eating breakfast. And depending if it is weekend or if I have to work, for how long I keep them on.

I've just messaged them so hopefully I'll get a reply. There's no way I'd hand over money before the process is underway, as you never know who people are. I'm not holding my breath that this service is real, but it's worth a shot. Just need to remind myself to be careful

I prefer to wear Carbon38 tank tops as they are very flexible. They were recommended to me by my friend who have been using these tops from last few months and finding them really comfortable. I am also very happy with it.
