I had thrombo phlebitis when I was pregnant quite a few years ago and when I was pregnant with my 1st child, my Dr. told me it looked like I had already had 10 kids by the looks of my legs. I have had my legs stripped and had the laser treatment for my varicose veins to help with the pain. The measures I have taken to help my legs have helped the pain, but my legs are ugly. On vacation, I went into a convenient store to pay for the gas we had got and a trucker was in there and made fun of my legs saying he was glad he didn't have ugly legs and would never go out in public if he had legs that looked like mine. I ignored him like I thought was the best idea, but when we got back on the interstate he kept changing lanes in front of us with his 18 wheeler. I can't believe that the ugliness of my legs led my family to be in such an unsafe situation. The varicose veins have left my ankles at two different sizes with the right ankle measuring 10" and my left ankle measuring 12". Is there anything that can be done to minimize the bulging areas in my legs and make them look nice again?
