Last summer I returned home from Hawaii with a case of phlebitis in my right leg. The damned airplane seat was so squashed that there was scarcely any leg room. I got up and walked around often, did leg exercises to no avail. I lost a week at work and spent many boring days with my legs up.
So, tomorrow I'm getting the saphonous vein in my right leg zapped. Dr Charles West will use a laser unless he finds that he needs to do surgery. I had vein stripping the old fashioned way back in 1988 but my doc says that they missed this big old vein somehow. I know there is more air travel in my future since Kevin lives in Tokyo. The zapping will help prevent a recurrence.
I hope I'm through with needing to have anesthesia for a few years. I had an endoscopy at the end of January. It weakened me and I ended up sick with a cold/asthma.
This time around I will make myself take it easier. I don't want to get sick again. The problem is I hate sitting around recuperating. The weather is very pleasant now and there are just so many things I want to do!
Yesterday I walked to the student center for lunch. I admired all the azaleas along the way.
