It shows 5.0 seconds in upper calf with 0.5 seconds of reflux noted in the right SFJ. DVT neg. Should I be concerned? Just short of surgery, would you recommend I eat those grape supplements I've read about or stockings? I'm 54 years old and a bit overweight. Also, would a lot of weight loss reduce the problem?

I had a varicose vein treated recently. Most of my spider veins were treated by sclerotherapy, with good result. I still have remaining ones, so I was offered to buy 2 or 4 injections, but I'm not sure how this works. Is it a good idea to purchase the injection package? How many veins will I be able to treat with it? How exactly does it work?
Are large veins usually injected during sclerotherapy for spider veins?
Spider Vein Treatment -8 answers
I had sclerotherapy for spider veins performed two weeks ago on my leg. I have been in a great deal of pain since. All my sore spots are large veins in my foot/ankle. On a follow-up, I was told they injected them. When I asked why, I was told that every vein that they can see can be injected in the foot since I have so many. I have a hard time believing this and I now don't trust them. Is any of this true? Also, with so many large veins injected, how long before I can walk without pain?
