Hello there. I can understand your concern. Varicose veins happen because of standing for long durations. Your mother needs to lose weight, avoid standing for long hours, you can ask her to use varicose veins stockings. Consult a general surgeon in person for further management. Venous stripping can also be done as a treatment for varicose veins. Therefore would suggest you to consult a general surgeon in person as soon as possible. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.

Compression stocking are used to prevent pooling of blood, sclerotheray, laser surgery can be done, high ligation and vein stripping is commonly done surgery consult general surgeon.
