When I hit my late 40s, early 50s I noticed I had developed many varicose veins in my legs. Although there was some pain associated with them I did not want to undergo surgery. I had observed an Army buddy who’d undergone surgery for his many years ago and whose recovery from the surgery was brutal. He was pretty much a cripple for six months and in considerable pain.
Several months ago I ran across an article in AARP’s magazine that talked about the new laser procedures now available for remedying a person of varicose veins. I went to my primary care physician and told him I did not know if my insurance would cover this new procedure or not but that I wanted to explore getting my varicose veins fixed because of my concern about blood clots. Fortunately, my insurance did provide coverage for the treatment.
My primary care physician recommended Vein Care Specialists to me. I went for an initial consultation and ultrasound vein mapping, which determined that I could benefit significantly from undergoing the laser procedure, followed by foam treatments. I’ve now had the procedures on both my legs and am very pleased with the results. There was some discomfort but it was very minimal and I felt it certainly worth undergoing a little discomfort to have the fear of further, more significant pain and the risk of blood clots eliminated. My legs look much better too.
I would highly recommend anyone who has varicose veins to contact Vein Care Specialists and schedule a consultation.
