Treatment Of Varicose Veins

One of the treatments for varicose veins is surgery. This usually isn’t a detailed procedure, but you will notice results in a short time after the surgery is completed. When you visit a varicose vein surgery Mobile Al physician, you will likely be asked about any pain that is associated with the veins. The doctor will examine the area to determine the severity of the condition before setting an appointment for surgery.

OVV Bulging

During the surgery, the veins are removed so that there is no pressure in the legs. The veins that are tied off and removed are close to the skin and don’t impede the blood that flows in the legs since there are deeper veins present. Many people see relief soon after the surgery so that they can walk, stand or sit without feeling pressure or pain in the legs. Those who have veins that cause bleeding underneath the skin and those who have veins that could result in ulceration are often impacted better from surgery than those who have milder cases of varicose veins.

Before and After

Your doctor will perform tests to determine if you qualify for surgery and to see if you are healthy enough for the procedure. A Doppler is often used to look at the blood flow in the legs before surgery is scheduled. There is a possibility that you will stay overnight, but most people have the surgery performed in an outpatient center. You will be put to sleep using a general anesthetic so that you won’t know what is taking place when the surgery is performed. Other anesthetic injections will be given when you are asleep. Your leg will be numb for the first few hours after surgery. Pain medications will be given so that you can be comfortable when you are at home. After the area is healed, you can begin walking and doing daily activities once again.

Relief For Varicose Veins

I finally bought myself a pair of support stockings from the pharmacy to relief the bulging varicose veins on my legs.  The pair of stockings cost me RM89, freaking expensive!  Though I had bought the stockings for 3 days already, I had only worn it once for half a day yesterday.  It’s really troublesome to have to wear the ultra tight stockings.  Not only do I feel hot and uncomfortable wearing it, I have to be careful not to wet it when I go to the bathroom or bathe the kids.  I even have to hand wash the stockings myself coz I don’t trust my new maid with it as the pair of stockings are made of delicate material and tears easily. Hopefully the varicose veins will subside soon but I will need to wear the stockings diligently everyday to see some results.

No Longer Sexy Legs

That’s how ugly my once sexy legs are now. Old wives tale has it that if you’re expecting a girl, the baby girl will steal all your beauty away!

The varicose and spider veins are becoming from bad to worse everyday.

The veins on my left leg have now spread to my foot and ankle. I now look like a diseased person. Maybe I should really consider doing treatment for the varicose and spider veins. I’ve just written a review on this and I am really tempted to do it after delivering my baby.

The varicose veins are slowly but surely attacking my right leg now.

I am really hoping that these varicose and spider veins will subside after I have delivered my baby.

Varicose Veins


That’s my thigh and the unsightly varicose veins that have been expanding as my pregnancy progresses. The veins started to appear when I was pregnant with Sherilyn. It only started to subside, but not completely gone after I had given birth. Now that I’m pregnant again, the veins are starting to expand again like roots to a tree and I can feel pain and heavy pressure at the site of the varicose veins whenever I stand. It’s really ugly and I look like an ah soh with bulging varicose veins. I can forget about wearing mini skirts even after I’ve given birth. I know one of the ways to reduce the symptoms is to lie on my back and raise up my legs. I’ve been doing it for at least 15 minutes everyday but I can’t see any improvement though.
I’ve read from the internet that if the problem gets way too serious, surgery can be opted to remove the veins, but purely for cosmetics reason. It’s not a life threatening condition though. This condition is hereditary as my mum also has it. Anyone has any natural, safe and easy way of reducing the varicose veins to share?
