Finally feeling almost back to normal after varicose vein surgery 2weeks ago.
▪️ Although most doctors say "it's just one of those things", mine began 8years ago whilst having chemotherapy.
I had several lumbar punctures which on many occasions struck a nerve in my right leg. I believe this trauma was the cause of my varicose veins as any body else I have spoken too with the same issue has had some kind of trauma, eg broken leg, child birth or previous surgery of some kind. May not be true, but it's my theory. ▪️
When the veins began to bubble in my leg, just the odd one or two wasn't a problem, as time went on and they seemed to enlarge and spread, I hated the look of them (my old man leg), I felt really embarrassed and would hide it away as much as I could. Over the past 3years I have suffered constant dull aches, bruising and cramps. 10months after seeing the specialist and drama back and to with hospitals and surgeons, I finally had the surgery. I underestimated how painful it would be, completely knocked me for six, especially my groin incision. Last week I removed my bandages to still see a few varicose veins, to which I felt I'd gone through all this agony for nothing. I still have a bad ache and pain in my lower leg and limited mobility in my groin, but it's early days. The main thing looking at this photo is that it is a huge improvement cosmetically, so fingers crossed in the next few weeks of recovery the dull ache will disappear too or I'll be heading for round 2 🙈
