Hi Nana 2, my husband had a procedure like this done about 2 years ago. Unfortunately, his was not a success. He has a long standing problem with this in one leg. Do not be swayed by his outcome as I under this to be a successful procedure for many. His cardiologist is going to do another vein procedure on this same leg, he feels quite certain this will help him. He does his procedures somewhat different so we will see. My husbands issues started with a large blood clot in the main vein, he has had several. He has over a 20 year history with this problem. Just be sure that whoever does this procedure has tons of experience at it & do not be afraid to ask for stats either.
I really do not think the compression hose will have a whole lot effect on the blood flow problem. Keep in mind I am not a dr either, lol. Both of us have issues with our legs swelling & this is why the drs has us wearing them. I would urge you to get your procedure done sooner than later, the worse the problem gets the harder it will be to work well for you.
