A Varicose Vein Treatment is Painful, But Necessary

Updated on: August 18, 2014

Remember when you were a little kid and you were forced to go on those family vacations? It seemed as if your parents deliberately picked the most boring places to go, and made you stay there for two weeks at a time. Oh, the boredom was sometimes punctuated by something exciting, like, well, a car show.

One of the old guys at the car show wore embarrassingly short shorts, which showed off the effects of his varicose vein treatment. There his veins were for all the world to see, puffy and reddened. He didn't care if people stared. Heck, they were supposed to be looking at the cars, not him!

Needless to say, his car, a beat up old Chevy, wasn't much to look at. So, his legs became the next topic of conversation. He said his varicose vein treatment was going pretty well, but they took a bunch of sessions over a period of time. He just wished that the whole thing was done and his legs looked manly again, haha.

You wondered if this was really all there was to talk about – a varicose vein treatment. You supposed it was. Although, you admit that it did get more interesting when he talked about the big needles involved in the varicose vein treatment. Did it hurt? He said that it sure did, but he could stand it. How fascinating. You slowly walked away from him and his car – your parents kept talking to him. You sure hoped that when you got old you wouldn't get varicose veins.
