Welcome to Healthcare Magic
There could be varicose veins which are blocked. If the Doctor said it could be life threatening it much be deep vein thrombosis. This can lead to clot sent to the heart and breathing difficulty. Better to see that he is on proper DVT prophylaxis. Avoid prolonged inactivity in bed. Let him drink plenty of water.

Blocked water in the vein suggests that there is impaired venous circulation. Could be a surgical condition called as Varicose veins. Some of the other causes are Edema due to high blood pressure, kidney problems, heart problems, etc.
