I have had two surgeries for the severe varicosities I had. My doctor
said these were in the top 1% of the worst. One leg healed fairly well, but the right leg has not healed at all. It is terribly black below the knee and over the knee there are lumps where the sutures were tied. I have had heart surgery in the past, to replace the tricuspid valve ( with a pig valve)
I thought having that done would "fix" the veins in my leg! But they kept bleeding out, leaving me to be transfused,yet again.Has anyone had these surgeries with so poor a result? What can I do ? Also the right leg (bad)
stay horribly swelled even after a seven hour surgery to correct it.
