Varicose Veins in my left

I have some varicose veins in my left leg from quite a few years now. I want to have it rectified without any surgery. Recently I have started to feel some pain because of it. I am on the heavier side with weight as 90+ height 5'8". How and What to do? I do swimming sometimes here and there but not as regular now.

Hello, Fortunately, treatment usually doesn't mean a hospital stay or a long, uncomfortable recovery. Wearing compression stockings all day is often the first approach to try before moving on to other treatments. Sclerotherapy. In this procedure, your doctor injects small- and medium-sized varicose veins with a solution that scars and closes those veins. Doctors are using new technology in laser treatments to close off smaller varicose veins and spider veins.
