Nashville patients tell us their frightening experiences with varicose veins
Varicose veins can be scary in many ways. Another patient came to us looking for relief from her varicosities. Indeed, she had several large, ropey varicose veins and a great deal of spider veins that gave her legs a disturbing appearance. But this patient complained of the side effects of said leg veins. In addition to the look of her veins, her legs and ankles were swollen most of the time, which caused her so much pain that she was no longer able to walk her beloved dog beyond her own front yard. She stated she was becoming depressed and lethargic, feeling “trapped” inside her own home and body.
THAT is scary!
