Hello there,
Welcome to healthcare magic.I can very well understand what you are going through.For varicose veins, most commonly used are sclerotherapy and of course the stockings, which you must be already on.Apart from thatyou can try SSV saphenectomy,Radiofrequency (RF) ablation,intense-pulsed-light therapy,portable phlebectomy also.Pl consult with your primary care physician for this.
