I am a complicated 60-year-old kidney transplant patient who, despite this, actively runs and speed walks 2-3 miles 4-5 times a week. Should I be concerned about DVT's and further clots, as well as infection. VenaSeal has been recommended by my physician. What puts me at a greater risk, the varicosity or the VenaSeal procedure? My ultrasound is consistent with GSV scarring and possible clot in past, along with HX of 3 superficial clots in knee area.

I'm a 32-year-old male with a family history of varicose veins and a recent diagnosis of superficial and deep varicose veins. I've purchased compression socks and have no problem wearing them, but I do want to start working out heavily, either with strength training, endurance training, or aggressive static, start/stop training. My venous specialist recently recommended VenaSeal. I'm considering it, but I wonder if I'm jumping the gun.
