I had multiple symptoms before having the VNUS closure procedure, including tired aching legs, large bulging veins, ulcers and discoloration. I wore ted stockings and put my feet up when sitting. Then I saw an ad in the paper and thought I would check into it-and not just for cosmetic reasons. The procedure was not bad at all, Dr. Jenkins was great at explaining things and the nurses where great helpers. It didn’t take long at all. I returned to work right away and felt improvement in a short time. In a few weeks my legs looked and felt so much better. I would recommend this to anyone having problems. It is nice not to see the big bulging veins in my legs. I no longer have the tired, achy feeling in my legs. Our legs carry us all day, so we need them to feel good!
