Today I got my pressure bandage removed and was scanned with the ultrasound to make sure there were no clots due my newly collapsed vein... all is good so I am now in compression hose for two weeks during the day (can sleep with them off, YAY!) This means I can shower tonight!!!! Well, I've showered, as good as you can with one leg hanging out wrapped in a garbage bag :)
I know this has nothing to do with the band....but I am thinking there may be a few of you that suffer with Varicosities! Probably not as bad as mine but anyway, that is why I am sharing!
Right leg is being done on March 30th...at least I know what to expect now.
I've been reading your blogs while high on liquid lortab so if I was typing in code or left really gushy messages blame the drugs!
I am going to leave you with even grosser pictures than my pre-op leg photos!
Just to explain a little... a laser fiber is thread up the vein and as it fires it shuts down the vein from inside. That part you can't see except way up my thigh there is a huge red/purple bruise the size of um, a salad plate, a tortilla or TEXAS!
All the marks, or bloody gooey holes if you will are from after the vein was collapsed and then tiny incisions were made and the big lumpy (and now not being filled) veins were removed... I know, I watched them tug them out from all twenty-two sites! It was cool! (Remember, I once was a paramedic)
Lower left of pic you can see the beginning of my HUGE bruise.
Can't wait to share the after photos...if you all will dare look by then! :)
Thanks for the well wishes too! You guys are the best!
