Good morning! *warm huggs* It is good to hear from you. How are you doing this morning? A bit better? We are good here glad it is Friday!
I am so glad to hear that your ultra sound went okay. I know the releif is only 15% chance but it is good that the option is there, if needed. The bleeding from your legg sounds very scary! I am glad youw ere able to get the blood out thou! I have such a hard time getting blood and tomato out of clothing.... well, short of "mega bleaching".
I hope today is better for the swelling!
Good morning everyone and thanks so much for the replies.
Golitho you might try sprinkling a little powder inside the hose that usually helps. I describe putting them on is like putting on a girdle that is a couple of sizes too small. lol I just roll mine up the leg to get them on. There is no easy way of doing it that I am aware if except the powder trick. I have an abdominal hernia Golitho and its real pretty watching me sit in the middle of the bed putting these dang things on, lol.
As for the "blood letting " incident a little bit later that little deal caught up with me. I became light headed, felt faint, wobbly the whole bit.l But, I lost quite a bit of blood at the same time, think of an artery getting nicked and blood spurting out at a steady flow, thats exactly what happened to me. Unfortunately, both of my legs have these veins that are raised so yes a good target for a razor. I sort of know what my daughter goes thru now when she has her blood taken out every other month, but she gets pretty sick each time. She does it to get the iron levels down because of the hemochromatosis, thats the only way they can get the iron levels down is to take a unit of blood. Yuck.
The weather has cooled off so much this week, in fact it really cooled the last two days and omg, my body is screaming at me. I have been taking pain pills and muscle relaxers to make it thru the day. I have been waiting for it to cool off but forgot what it would do to the body.
Hope everyone has a good weekend. Hugs to all.
LL & Couchpotato, this vascualr guy I went to says they now inject the veins and use lasers instead of the old "vein stripping". He says its much easier to do and alot less painfull. My friend was a butcher and from standing on his feet all day, omg, it did look like worms under the skin of his legs it was awful. Both of his legs were nothing but lines of veins at the top of the skin, creepy looking. He had the old traditional vein stripping done and said never again.
I do have spider veins that have come to the top surface in places on the fronts and backs of my legs. So shaving is going to be out with the traditional razor blade shaving.
I must have dislodged something Sat in the shower and it started all over again, spurting blood. This time hubby was home and I yelled I needed help. Here he came running along with my grandson. Grandson saw all the blood and nearly flipped out-he does not do blood well. I got him chased out of the bathroom and got him calmed down later.
Whitebeard may be right. Maybe I need to get a pro time done because of the amount of bleeding that goes on with me. I am always getting a little scratch working outside in the yard. I remember trimming my holly bushes and one edge poked me in the upper arm and I did not feel it. What got my attention was blood dripping on my tennis shoe, I happened to look down and saw all the blood on my shoe. So, I took the water hose and started washing my arm off thinking I would find a long scratch only to find a tiny, tiny hole in the arm from the prick of the holly leaf,lol.
Hope everyone has a low pain day.
