The hospital time for surgery is in the range of 1 - 3 days, depending on comfort. The leg(s) are firmly bandaged from toes to groin and this may impede walking to a mild degree for 2 days. Driving a car may be challenging during the first 2 days post op. Re-bandaging of leg(s) takes place on the second day after surgery and this is usually a transfer into stockings. Stockings are used for 2 days to 2 weeks.
