OK well this week has been a barrage of doctors appointments, tests, etc but the good news is that my left leg is healing. The dried skin has virually gone and for the interim period I'm back to wearing compression stockings once more.
However, I am due to return to hospital early July for day laser surgery, initally on my left leg, then later my right. Basically they make a small incision above the knee, insert a small tube with a laser attachment into the offending surface vein and heat the non-working value, which destroys it and boils the blood inside the vein which collapses it. Hmmm sounds err intersting...
Lower left leg @ 4th June
Extra good news I've lost 5kg since leaving hospital :)
