"Compression stockings"

About: Wrightington Hospital

I would like to ask why my husband was not given a spare pair of compression stockings.

He came out wearing the same pair put on after his operation.

I was told to take them off wash them, put them on a radiator to dry and then put them back on again, but we haven't put our radiators on yet?

We were told that because of cut backs we couldn't have a spare pair !!
