What Questions Should You Ask Your Vein Doctor?

If varicose or spider veins are the bane of your existence, preventing you from living your best life, the leading vein doctors can lend you a helping hand. After all, the best thing you can do is consult the leaders in the field of advanced varicose vein treatment and by far the worst is to ignore the symptoms and warning signs.

We hear you say: Alright, I’ve decided to take the plunge and see a vein doctor near me. But you may wonder how to prepare for the consultation. Read on to check out the list of questions you should ask your doctor during your initial consultation regarding varicose veins.

Do I need to see a vein doctor?

Often, spider and varicose veins do not have clear symptoms. Other times, the symptoms are so vague that we tend to attribute them to something else entirely. Here’s an overview of the most prominent telltale signs that you are dealing with varicose veins:

If and when you start to notice any strange symptoms you haven’t been experiencing before, you should definitely see a vein doctor.

Of course, even the slightest discoloration of the skin as a result of varicose or spider veins in their initial stage could make you lose your self-confidence. In other words, aside from the physical manifestations, there is the potentially devastating psychological effect to think about.

Can you walk after varicose vein surgery?

At this point, we have to differentiate between varicose vein surgery and modern, non-invasive varicose vein treatment methods that the leading physicians would recommend as the preferred option.

Traditional varicose vein surgery does not only carry risks of complications, but may also prove ineffective in giving you the results that you are looking for. On top of that, the recovery period is long and painful.

Modern varicose vein treatment procedures are minimally invasive and therefore just the opposite: there are no risks and the recovery period and post-treatment after your varicose vein procedure brief. Depending on your condition, you will require multiple treatments, but you will get results that you have been hoping for.

Do veins heal?

Varicose veins cannot heal on their own. Just the contrary: you can expect the condition to become aggravated if you don’t take action. How much the symptoms and appearance of your varicose veins will worsen over time depends on various factors. Your lifestyle is likely to play an important part in this.

Consult your vein specialist about any long-term lifestyle changes you should make to try and alleviate the symptoms before undergoing treatment.

Do veins grow back after removal?

Varicose veins may reoccur after treatment, which is why multiple appointments may be necessary to get optimal results. Your doctor will conduct in-depth follow-up examinations to monitor progress and adjust treatment to your needs.
