varicose veins

Hi everyone...Anyone got any information on leg veins and higher instances of blood clotting after hyster? I've asked my primary care physician and he's said that, yes, you can be more susceptable to problems-which kindof freeked me out. (does that mean I'll get one!!!) I have had one in the past after childbirth, now I wonder what precautions, if any, they take during and after surgery. My varicose veins are in one leg only, but are deep and in the main vein. GEEZ...not another thing to worry about!!!

varicose veins

I have no experience with varicose veins. Who will be doing your surgery? I think I would talk to the doctors more about this. I'm sorry that I can't give you any better information. Tell your Primary Care doctor that this is a REAL concern and want to know how to get more information on this topic.

You may want to do a SEARCH on varicose veins. At the top of the page you can click on the tab that says SEARCH. Type in varicose veins and it should give you other posts here regarding varicose veins.

Best wishes to you,

varicose veins

Linnieloo, Are you saying you have already had a blood clot? If you have, then it's important for your doctor to know this. They will take extra precautions to make sure that you don't get a clot this time. I don't have varicose veins, but I did have a blood clot (deep vein thrombosis). Please be sure to remind the anesthesiologist also that you have had a blood clot in the past.
