He is payin 4 me to go into hospital to have it removed! Im so glad im havin it removed but im so scared 2!! Im goin in 2wks 2mo and will have to hav a general!
Im prone to hematomas (have had 2 in ther past) and im dreadin havin another 1!!!

hi charlie,

my mam had that surgery and unfortunatley it didnt work and her varicose veins are worse than ever.
im only 20 and i didnt get any whilst pregnant but got a couple afterwards.

i wouldn worry bout them but if it bothering u that much then obvs surgery is the answer - hope all goes well for you.

hey...
I did go 2 the doctors and was given a cream for Thromboplebitis ( summin like that ) It was meant to help reduce the swelling of the veins ..... I didnt find it did anything and I also had stockings to wear ( very attractive !!! ) They also didnt help them in appearance but did help take away the throbbing you sumtimes get with them...

Unfortunately there isnt alot u can do to get rid of them without surgery,,, there is an alternative to having them stripped or removed. U can have them injected with sum sort of foam which makes them disperse but they are likely to return within 6 months, so its on going treatment!! thats y i opted 4 surgery!
xx
