My surgeon did an ultrasound on my leg to check the blood flow and the vein wasn't working properly. He sat me down to discuss the problem and then provided me with my options. He explained everything, so it was a very pleasant process. The staff were extremely supportive and at no point did I not know what was going to happen, which felt comforting.

Just four weeks afterwards, I completed the Edinburgh marathon. I probably wouldn't have been able to run the race without the treatment; and if I had just a normal kind of stripping surgery I would not have been able to take part at all.
