Brief Answer:
10 days after the surgery.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for the query.

If your activity is regular (you do not stay in bed for a long time), and you do not take any drugs increasing blood coagulation, 10 days after the surgery is the right time to stop wearing them.

Hope this helps.
