Today’s 44 had to be fairly simple so I did triceps dips using 2 chairs.
And, no other work-out today because I have to take a day or so off thanks to yesterday’s miserable experience!!!
Some of you may remember from way back in April that I had the varicose veins in my legs stripped. And, you may remember that the recovery was not at all what the DR told me it would be. It was long and painful!!!
Yesterday was, hopefully, the final part of this process to get rid of the varicose veins. I had a procedure called sclerotherapy done.
HOLY HELL – this HURT!!!
I’m not sure what exactly was in the needles – saline and something else.
I took one picture and then quit watching – I blocked the view with my Nook!!! I tried to count the # of injections but lost count after 20 or 25.
I think the ones on my left foot and ankle hurt the most but by that point I was in so much pain that I really couldn’t tell for sure.
I tried to chat with the nurse and DR while they worked but it was hard to talk much with my teeth clenched!!!
It has been 6.5 months since I had my initial surgery and I still DO NOT recommend this procedure. I know that, according to my DR, my results were rare but the fact that I went into this thinking it would be a week long recovery and I have had pain in my legs (especially my left ankle) every day since I had the procedure done makes me wish I had never started this whole process.
Hopefully, this is a short (1-3 days) recovery like the DR said this time!
I’ve been telling myself that maybe after this step I will finally be happy that I had all of this done – I’m not there yet but maybe in another day!
I try not to live my life with regrets but this whole experience has definitely been a regret!!!
