I'm considering vein treatment, but how do I know the protruding veins on my shins (like on my feet and hands) are varicose?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 2 weeks ago
I've had a consultation with a board-certified doctor, but still have concerns. Clotting and stroke run on my mom's side of the family. She died of a pulmonary embolism at 42 but I don't know where the clot was. Are laser or injection treatments less prone to clotting than removal/stripping?

I have stiffness in my knees, as well as swelling and pain on the outside of my knees. It is really hindering my activities. I cannot bend my knees without screaming pain.

My dad's leg and foot are swollen after vein surgery. He also has a large lumpy vein in his thigh. Should we be concerned? Is something wrong?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 5 months ago
My father had varicose veins removed & lasered from both legs. He has worn his compression stockings for about a week. He hasn't exercised since there is some stiffness and he is recovering. He went back to his retail job 2 days after the procedures. We've noticed that he has some swelling in his right leg and foot. It seems like fluid build up, because when I press on it, the dent doesn't go away. There is also a large lumpy vein in his inner thigh. Is there something wrong?
