Drs said I have to be up moving to be able to take off the compression tights, how active do I need to be? They are bruising & hurting my feet/thighs

In brief: Normal Activity
You should be up and moving as close to possible to normal, every couple of hours or so (except for a normal 8-10 hours of sleep) to complete everyday activities like toileting, hygiene, meals.
..Before you remove your compression tights. If you have any doubts, as your doctor.
