I work in a bindery walking all day on concrete and wearing steeltoe shoes, I also had a second job cleaning apts, i first noticed veins behind my knees started to get very painful, i had to put a pillow under my knees to lay in bed to read then i noticed what i thought was a bruise on my left leg i thought i had hit it with a vacuum going upstairs. after a couple weeks the bruise did'nt go away and now i see bulging veins.
i started to leg cramps on that spot i had a dr app. so i asked her to look at it and she said i had varicose veins, i went to the place she recommended, after the first appt.i was scheduled for a 2hr ultrasound, i had laser ablation on my right leg 2weeks ago it feels pretty good, on mon the 26th of nov.i had laser ablation and microphlebectomy, i am in a very little amount of pain leg feels kinda stiff and i hate the stockings after i can walk without the stockings
i will update
