38 Y/O After 3rd Baby, Varicose Veins - Very Smart Doc - Manhattan, NY

About a year ago I had my third baby (yes, yes I...

About a year ago I had my third baby (yes, yes I know, but we really wanted one :)) Even after the second delivery (about 3 years ago) my varicose veins were showing pretty bad. My mom had the same thing, but back in the day the doctors did not recommend to do anything, as the symptoms were not bad enough to go "under knife". Nowadays with all these lasers and new technology my OB/GYN said it would be safe to take care of them. I went to Dr. Khitin based on a referral from my doctor. I believe it is too soon to say about the final results, but I am happy with what I see so far and I am happy with the doctor and the clinic. He is a very interesting guy. I liked how he spent a lot of time with me, patiently trying to "translate" the medical lingo with nature metaphors:) the rivers the go into the ocean etc. There was not pressure, I said that I will think about it and I did and I decided to go for it. As of writing this the exterior visible veins are gone. I do still see the "entry point" where he inserted the laser, but they said it will go away with time. It remains to be seen :) I saw one comment that it was a waste of time - at this point I do not agree, as I do see a difference, but I guess it depends what she had before she "went under" :) Hope this helps...
