Before having my lower body lift my Plastic...
Before having my lower body lift my Plastic Surgeon wanted me to have my veins taken care of so this next week I am going to a clinic to have them checked and to have vein ablation done. These are secondary veins that have exploded due to the main veins being stripped some 20 years earlier. Turns out when you have that done most likely the secondary veins end up bulging. So I am excited, the thought that some day I will have legs that can be seen is exciting. Never in my adult life have I worn shorts or showed my legs. I will take pictures and update after my apt,
First treament today
I have my first set of injections, not sure what they are injecting, the Dr. said it was a "detergent of sorts" he said he doesn't use saline, as he doesn't like the results. If this doesn't cause the veins to go down then we have to do the laser rod treatment...so hoping this works...He did the left leg and we will wait 2 weeks and on Jan 24 I will have my other leg done...I have a gauze bandage on my entire leg and then tomorrow I will start wearing the support hose...They look like granny hose....lol
Having to wear a skirt
Oh no...these granny hose are so tight they push all my gushy skin to the top of my thighs and they spill over the hose. Not a good look and even worse with pants on! So for the next several weeks I will have to hide them in skirts...ugh Can't wait to get rid of this extra skin!!!!
One week out
Personally I can't see any difference I was told to wear the stockings for 10 days so I will continue, I go back 2/24 and they will try the other leg. Surgeon has assured me he will get rid the veins one way or another so I may need the ablation done....it's a long process I guess
Treatment coming aong
Had second treatment, seems the first treatment has closed down the first veins that were done, so the rest of them on the left leg was done. Next week I go back to start on the right leg...
It's a process
Third session today, the right leg was started with two bigger veins treated, I will be back in a week to make sure they closed and then we will start on treating the cosmetic side of getting rid of what is left after the vein is closed...They are looking better but I sure can't wait until they are gone from view!
All most done...
Done with the closing of the bulging veins that is, then it's on to the cosmetic portion of getting rid of the visual remints of them...Not sure how much more I can get down before I leave on my trip as I need at least a week before for healing before I fly...it's only a hour trip to LAX and I will be wearing my support hose...
