Dr. Asima Fazal Please help.


There are chances that you may develop varicose veins again in this pregnancy, which themselves are not serious but sometimes leads to complications like superficial thrombophelebits which you developed before or even more serious deep vein thrombosis but these complications are rare. You should use compression stockings as advised by your doctor, and avoid standing for prolonged durations. Take care and look for any signs of infection , redness , severe pain etc. In most patients varicose veins improve after delivery but if persist surgery is advised.

u cannot stop them from developing..all u have take care is that u dont
develop DVT..keep urself well hydrated, drink lots of water n keep
walking.dont confine urself to bed.n n wear stockings.if u develop pain in
calves or anywhere consult ur doctor immediately.u can search on net for
symptoms of DVT careful for that
