insane in the membrane - part 2 & vein surgery update w/many pics

Okay, I think I am actually losing it!
I am feeling like a dumb-ass. Here is the deal. In my last couple posts I stated my first (and last, fingers crossed) goal to get to my ultimate goal weight by losing the last 20 lbs. by my two year bandaversary date of 8/31/11.

Funny thing is, today I was thinking about dates and when I had my veins operated on and how I thought it was strange that that surgery date fell on the day my brother lost his life and how my lapband surgery had fallen on his birthday. Yes, His birthday, July 31! I HAD THE WRONG DATE AS MY BANDAVERSARY! Geesh! Okay, the goal is still to lose the 20 lbs by 7/31. Oh Dear Lord Help ME!

BTW I don't know if I ever updated the varicose vein surgery results?

Gross pictures to follow - fair warning

On March 15th 2010 I had laser treatment done and removal of the veins. I had the WORST bulgy, ugly, painful veins ever.

Before:





Having the surgery:





Three days wrapped up and two weeks of support/pressure hose:



Yikes! Hope it gets better than this



Four weeks post op:



And today, almost a year later there is still red scars but the lumps and bumps are gone. Might want to put on your sunglasses for these :)

  3. Thanks for posting that. I had a consult to get my veins done in December and I'm wait for my new insurance to kick in March to schedule it.Did you have veins removed or just the thing where they inject the device that scrapes them and they collapse?
