Please help me Last question if I do leg elevation with crepe bandage. The varicose veins disappeared or not I go for operation because I have low varicose veins in legs.

Dear lybrate-user, 1) The height of the legs should be such that the blood does not accumulate in the legs, so above chest level. 2) when sleeping, it is preferable that you do not use any bandage, since normal circulation to the rest of the leg should become normal. 3) depends on how large and disfigured the varicose veins are, you can extend the time. It should be done only to reduce the accumulation, but not all the time. 4) bandages is ok when you need to be standing or walking for long hours. At your age, 26, if you are going to be doing all this, it will be difficult for you to enjoy any outing. Please see lasertherapy. Co.in There are options that can help you recover to a great extent from varicose veins. Regards.

DVT - 4 Symptoms To Look For

MBBS, DGO

DVT - 4 Symptoms To Look For

Clotting of blood is important for us in case of an injury or wound. It prevents the blood to ooze out of the body from any opening. Our blood releases cells called blood platelets, which initiate the process of clotting. However, the clotting of blood inside the veins is not a good thing to happen. This condition is called thrombosis. Moreover, clotting during pregnancy is a serious condition that poses threat to the health of both the mother and the child. In case of pregnant women, clotting of blood starts in the deep veins. These veins are usually the ones in the legs or the pelvic region. This condition is termed as deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

Why there is a clot during pregnancy?
Blood can clot during pregnancy due to multiple reasons. Clotting occurs to prevent too much loss of blood at the time of labour. 

How will you know that it’s DVT?
DVT comes along with certain symptoms. Some of these have been listed below:

  1. The pregnant woman may notice tenderness or swelling in one of her legs. She might feel the pain in one of the legs.
  2. The skin colour of the woman starts reflecting changes. The skin might turn a little reddish.
  3. The patient’s skin will be warmer at the site of clot.
  4. The veins in the affected region might look dilated or larger in size.

What are the dangers linked to this clotting?
Whatever may be the reason, clotting during pregnancy is always attached to some dangerous consequences. If the blood clot is left unattended and untreated for long, it may have some serious consequence. The clot may start shifting from your legs to one or both of your lungs. This condition is called pulmonary embolism (PE). It is acute condition that can cause death of the patient as well. The symptoms of PE are as follows:

  1. The patient suffers from sudden breathlessness.
  2. The patient may feel that there is some tightness around the chest.
  3. The patient may find blood in her cough.
  4. The patient may show signs of collapse.

Clotting of blood can also prove detrimental to the baby’s health and growth. The blood is supplied through placenta to the baby and a clot in the mother’s vein can decrease the amount of blood supplied to the baby. Sometimes, the blood supply to placenta might be entirely snapped, leading to the death of the child inside the womb. However, blood clotting at the time of pregnancy happens to only a few women. It has been found that one or two in thousand die due to clotting of blood during pregnancy.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I am 70 years old. I have varicose veins on both my legs. My question is whether this problem can be cured with medicines or is surgery necessary? if so what will be the cost and how long it would take to recover?

MBBS
General Physician, Delhi
Varicose veins can not be treated permanently by medicines rather there is no medicine available for treatment. Symptomatic relief and complications such as leg ulcers can be prevented by using leg stockings. Consult a nearby surgeon and ask him about surgical options specially sclerotherapy which is minimal invasive technique. He will also tell you about price and it is a day procedure no need for admission.

She had a varicose veins. It pains a lot any home remedy or medication for it except surgery?

Varicose veins can cause pain, swelling and ulcer formation. Wearing compression stockings where applicable can reduce the pain and other symptoms to a certain extent. Surgery is an option. Endogenous laser treatment is the latest and safe treatment alternative. There are no home remedies as such.
