Vascular Surgery

Spider veins

10/19/2009

Question:

I`m 32 yrs female and i`ve 3 children. I strated to suffer from Varicose Veins and Spider Veins since i was 23 yrs and all due to long working hours. I visited a vascular doctor who advised to remove them buy injections. The doctor said the varicose veins which he removed won`t come back to appear but they all did and i have more now specially after giving birth to my 1st child, besides they give me pain in my legs. My question is which is the perfect way to remove spider veins and varicose veins? will they always come back to appear?

Answer:

As someone who has had vein procedures done previously, you can expect that you will likely need touch ups in the future. If you are still planning on more children, you can anticipate that the valves may get more leaky and require future procedures. I would suggest keeping in touch with your vascular surgeon and have a follow up venous reflux study to look at the valves in the veins in your legs. Good luck!
