A little about the Mama
Yesterday I had an outpatient procedure to collapse a vein in my right leg. I have bad valves in both my legs, but my right leg is worse and has caused vericose veins from my groin to under my knee. Ish. So yesterday they used a laser to collapse the vein by heat sealing it. Sounds fun, eh? They only use local anesthesia in the vein and all those pricks along the vein were the worst. I couldn't feel anything else since it was numb. Today I'm hobbling around with an ace bandage wrapped all up my leg and it feels like someone is playing tug of war with that large vein in my inner thigh. I will go back in a couple weeks to have the smaller vericose veins pulled if shutting down this large vein doesn't help them to decrease in size. Man, I feel like an old woman!
