I am 40 years old I have a problem of varicose veins for last 4 years. From last one month I am suffering from venous ulcers is very painful. My doctor advised me to have laser operation in my legs. Is it necessary to have operation.

Hi, if you have developed a painful ulcer in your leg, then most likely you will need intervention. Please take the opinion of a Vascular Surgeon (if your doctor is not a Vascular Surgeon) before considering any intervention as vascular surgeons are the best trained and skilled to treat “varicose veins”. Take care.

You are already into an advanced stage of the disease as you have developed ulcers. Please get it treated soon by a Vascular Surgeon. Any delay in treatment will lead to further complications.
