  • Varicose Veins Treatment
    My grandmother has been suffering from varicose veins on her legs for quite awhile. They're swollen and make her calf look extremely mishapen, liek she has lumps beneath her skin. Despite the apparent severity, her insurance won't cover it because they consider it an aesthetic issue. Her doctor prescribed compression hosiery, which has helped but not aleviated the problem. I've read a lot about varicose veins leading to clots in the lungs, heart, or brain and I'm worried. Should I be? What should my grandmother do to pursue treatment? What kinds of treatments have other people gotten?

    I use compression stockings, which work okay though I find them kind of uncomfortable. My doctor brought up the possibility of surgery, but that honestly makes me really nervous.
