Compression socks or compression wrap?

I just got metatarsal re-alignment to correct a bunion and I am 4 weeks post op. the doctor said that in two weeks I will be able to wear normal shoes, but my foot is too swollen to even fit in a normal shoe. I heard compression wraps or socks can help keep swelling down and I was wondering which was better. Also, do compression socks come in anything lower than knee highs, like ankle socks or something? And where can I buy compression wraps and socks online?

    Hi,

    I've read an article on caring for the metatarsal here: http://www.legstherapy.com/blog/how-to-choose-ball...

    And about the compression socks, it indeed help many who suffer from swelling. There are various good brands and sizes for everyone who need it and you can ask the customer service representative on what is the perfect choice for your condition and feet. :)

    I recommend you buy here: Legs Therapy (http://www.legstherapy.com/) since they have variety of choices and good customer service. :)

    Hope this helps.
