I am 42 years old I am taking warf 5 mg for past 6 years for treatment of DVT how many years should I continue?
A regular treatment with warf does not continue after 1 year. DVT usually resolves in an year. So you may stop tablet warf if your leg is all right now.

You have not mentioned about the competency of the “junctions “. If they are incompetent, you will need intervention for the healing of ulcers or else it will keep recurring. If the junctions are competent, get a Mr. venogram of ivc and both lower limbs done to check for any outflow instruction in the deep veins.

Which is the best exercise for a 74 year old lady Patient, who suffers from varicose vain and Venous ulcer?

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS

Cycling, leg lifts are the best exercise for varicose veins. Because they help in improved circulation and the blood does not get accumulated in one part.

I have varicose vein problem. Doppler test already done In left leg maximum problem. I don't want any kind of surgery laser also so there is any possibility to recover from this with medicine and exercises.

Instead of surgery you can try endovenous laser therapy foam sclerotherapy radiofrequency ablation and there is no other option for permanent relief.

I am having varicose veins from about 30 years now. Lot of medicines but no cure. There is no pain in legs but swelling while sitting in office. I had taken Dr. Reckeweg's R42, liquid. It works only when I take it. The problem increases once I stop it. Is there a permanent cure in Homeopathy? Please advice.

Its an anatomical defect in the body and hence no medicine is effective to cure it but only external support with the help of varicose stockings will be helpful to you.

I am suffering from Varicose veins problem from last many years I have done one laser surgery with Dr. Padariya at jaslock Hospital But same problems repeat again Please suggest me some proper doctor.

Hello, It is unfortunate that you are suffering from recurrent varicose veins. Although laser procedure is very successful (more than 97% success rate), sometimes the varicose veins can recur. The reasons for recurrence is 1. Other veins in the leg may develop varicosities apart from the treated vein 2. Recanalization of the ablated vein 3. Unusual anatomy, such as accessory veins which may be missed during doppler testing. It is thus important to get a detailed doppler mapping of the veins before treatment. In my clinic I perform doppler as well as laser myself.

Hi. Surgery is indicated only for particular conditions only. Lik pain, skin changes n ulcer formation. But they won't get cure with medications. Medicines can delay surgery only.

Varicose Veins And Homeopathic Cure

Varicose Veins And Homeopathic Cure

Varicose veins is a common condition observed in practice whereby patients present with dilated, tortuous and elongated veins, especially on the legs. However, any vein in the body if gets twisted, stretched out or looses elasticity, could be labeled as varicose.

  • The veins have certain valve like mechanism which allows the blood to move upwards toward the heart. The valves have leaflets. When the leaflets loose their elasticity, the valves loose their capacity to push blood upwards; hence there is a back pressure which leads to further elongation of the veins. The veins also have reduced elasticity. As a result, the veins get ‘tortuous’ or twisted; as well as hardened. The veins, thus, become visible as zigzag vascular tubes, especially on legs.
  • Varicose veins affect especially the depending parts of the body that is lower limbs, which gets even worse when one tends to stand longer. People in the business of standing for long, such as sales people, policemen, plastic surgeon (tend to stand for hours during surgery), etc. Are risk of developing varicose veins
  • Homeopathy works very well for mild to moderate cases of varicose veins. It helps to reduce pain, control further varicosity, reduces swelling. Homeopathy also helps significantly in the cases which have varicose ulcers. Homeopathic treatment is strongly recommended for all cases of varicose veins 
  • You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects.

It is possible that those stents have been blocked. 10 years is a long time. I am sure he has undergone a repeat angiography.
