oops! Sorry. I didn't realize he was wearing them. Thought he gave up on them.

Good luck with the surgery.

Yes, it is. We tried all the different types of tools you can buy, and this one worked the best by far, once you get used to it.

My husband is 39 and I cannot believe he has these problems. Well he has had the varicose veins in the one leg since his 20's.

Well surgery is scheduled for April 24th. Finally!!! We had to postpone it last month due to another attack of diverticultis. That's next on the list of surgeries. They want to remove the part of the colon that's diseased as a prevenative measure before he gets a big rupture. We will consider that maybe in 6 months or so.The varicose vein surgery is same day and about 1 1/2 hours. I will know monday evening what time we have to be at the hospital.
