i think i asked the same question on a different thread? Ako rin mami che, marami sa likod ng legs..anlaki pa.  :( Feeling ko schlerotheraphy talaga ang cure kaso kailangan pa rin ata ng clearance from a doctor bago magpa-schlero

Wala sis, kasi abnormal na yung flow ng blood sa veins natin kaya nagiging varicise veins. Tito ko nagpapa schlero. Sayang nga kasi sabi nila namana ko daw yun. Nasa lahi rin kasi namin. Imagine, 14 years old pa lang ako may varicose veins na ako sa binti ko?!?!

Haay, ngayon ang laki na niya at ang bilis sumakit. Nakakalungkot kasi di na ako makapag-shorts/skirts.

Gumagamit ako ng stockings na for prevention ng varicose. Though, sabi nila, compression stockings is best (P1500++ sa SM),

Gusto ko na ma-treat ang varicose veins ko kasi pag lumala daw, mas mahirap.

Hi mami che, how big are your varicose veins? is it tortous already? My mom had recent vein stripping yun nga lang sknya was tortous and got infected pa kaya she preceded with  the procedure na. I suggest go see a peripheral vascular surgeon for that so she can advise you what to do. I have varicose veins also behind my legs pero dipa ganun kalala pero minsan pag prolonged standing sumasakit na din and due to my work as a nurse before I used the embolism stockings pero prevention lang un. Meron po nilalagay na topical anesthetic before injecting the solution. Tska depende din po sa gagawa kung mabigat ang kamay na mag iinject masakit talaga.

^sis ningllorin - matagal ko gusto subukan ang schlero kaso ang gusto ko sana ipa-check muna sa doctor before ako magprocede. Ano ba sis ang tawag sa mga specialista pag dating sa varicose treatment?

@ sis trishevil, at 14 may varicose ka na? Hirap nun ha. You are correct-you need to see a specialist na... pero sabi nila sis, babalik din daw yun kahit natreat na?!? Do you have any idea how much is the schlero?

@ sis ningllorin, hindi pa naman ganun kalala... Got these varicose from my pregnancy. Masakit lang pag nakatayo ng matagal saka pag malamig... I still wear shorts (i dont care kasi kahit pangit legs ko basta comfy hehe) saka yung left leg pa lang meron. Worry ko baka lumala at magkaron din sa right leg...  :(

Ako kasi kahit nung Di pa nagkakaanak madami na din akong varicose veins sa binti, at mas dumami pa nung nag work ako sa electronics company sa Laguna and usually nakatayo kami lagi..then nung nagbuntis ako at nanganak mas nadagdagan pa varicose ko at sobrang masakit na sya lalo na pag tag lamig..so nag try ako ng uminom ng apple cider vinegar.. Since then nawala na yung sakit ng varicose ko at napapansin kung numinipis yung naka.umbok na ugat.. For me super effective sya kaso Lang sa ngayon mahirap nang makahanap sa market siguro mga 2months na wala supply;-)

Oo mami che. It is usually aggravated by pregnancy, prolonged standing due to work. Sumasakit din po yan due to venous stasis. Elevate mo po pag gabi with 2 pillows it will help. Ako din po meron pero deadma din ako mega shorts parin ako. Hindi pa kase ako pwede magpa sclero kase im still bf my baby.

@mami che - yes. 14 pa lang meron na. Nasa lahi na namin kasi. I inquired at the Medical City Clinic in SM Manila and P2,500 daw per session pero kailangan muna ng consultation.

Tagal na ng topic na to pero I just want to share my experience about schlero. May spider veins kasi ako dati sa hita at ilan sa binti ko tapos may isang varicose sa hita. Nagtake advantage na ako sa hmo namin tutal covered naman. Tig 5k kada binti ang covered.

Pero bago ako magunder go nun, ievaluate muna kung anong grade na ba yung varicose mo. Eh yung varicose ko nun grade 3 na yata kaya nakalusot ang approval. Yun nga lang instead na 2 legs ko ang ipapaschlero ko, yung left lang na-approve. About sa sakit, tolerable naman yung pain. Hindi ako nasasaktan dun sa medyo malaking ugat kapag iniinjectionan. Dun sa maninipis na ugat, dun ako nasasaktan. Very effective ang treatment na yun kasi nawala talaga lahat ng spider at varicose veins ko sa left leg. ^_^

hello po. new member po ako. im 20, but yung varicose veins ko sobrang nakakaconscious, kase malalaki sila. both legs, tas both arms, nakakahiya magshorts. :D

May nabasa ako tungkol sa EVLT. Endoveinous Laser Treatment. Kaso wala pa atang available na service dito sa Pilipinas.

Mas maganda sya kaysa sa mga turok kase instant yung pagkawala ng varicose veins.
