Hi,Can someone please tell me if it's ok to fit compression hosiery for someone with an abdominal aortic aneurysm ?

Is the aortic aneurysm being treated /monitored and under care of specialist whose opinion and co-operation can be sought?

Why do they need compression ? Were DOPPLERS ok?

Please be informed that the above is the opinion of the author and is in no way meant to be taken as instruction.

I think I would want vascular assessment re aneurysm implications first tbh.

TVN nurse might be able to advise in the mean time?
