Well, I bumped my leg, the bad one, again the other day, just broke the skin, within moments, I had it cleaned and covered with a bandage, but still a few days, later, the ugly white goop of infection
I went t the dermatologist today, I had a new lady doctor, and she was quite concerned that the redness had never gone away in my leg after nearly a year. I got some new meds, and some cream to put on the cut, she was not very concerned about that, it was small and not very deep, but after my last experience, I was not taking any chances.
I wanted to get a prescription from her for some of these compression sock things, custom made ones, as she agrees the problem with my leg is poor circulation, but she did not know about a "Prescription Custom Made Compression Sock" she had never heard of that. I suggested that she send me to a cardiologist or someone who does know about it. She suggested that I just buy a pair of the compression socks at the drug store, well I tried that before, the biggest size they have here is like a size 8, I'm a size 10, not going to work.
I go to see her again next Monday, if she does NOT have any info about the cardiologist, I'm just going to go find one myself, and get some sort of help, as it is obvious to me that the dermatologist is only of use to heal the infection but not the cause of the infection, the poor circulation.
Now to the point of my post, I need to buy some of these compression socks, I really want them like yesterday, so I'm going to order them online, does anyone have a recommendation for me? Online shop and or brand and model?
I ask, as there are a ton of product out there, and some of the prices are radically different, for what looks like the same kind of product, but from different companies.
Juzo Basic 4201AD Ribbed Sock 20-30 mmHg $32 a pair
Core-Spun by TheraFirm 20-30 mmHg Knee High $33 a pair
Juzo Soft 2001 Knee High 20-30 mmHg $57 a a pair
Jobst for Men Knee High (20-30 mmHg) $60 a pair
Jobst Relief Knee High - Closed Toe (20-30 mmHg) $28 a pair
I would guess that the quality or the durability of the socks comes at a price, but I'd love to hear from anyone with any experience with these types of product, whatever the brand is, and remember, they have to ship overseas.
Thanks in advance for the help!
