A young mother’s story about Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) and her tired, heavy legs:
Ana, a young mother from Mesquite, Texas, felt like she was missing out on being able to enjoy activities with her children. She was suffering from feeling tired, heavy legs with swelling also. These symptoms made it difficult to stand for long periods of time. It also made driving long distances not only uncomfortable but sometimes painful.
Ana couldn’t participate in all of the activities she wanted to enjoy with her children. She especially didn’t want to miss out on trips to the zoo and other fun outings. Ana searched on the web for “leg pain Dallas” and “heavy legs Dallas” to find the best Dallas doctors who help people with leg pain. She found Precision VIR. After reading the wonderful reviews from other patients and finding a lot of information on the website that seemed exactly to fit her situation, she made an appointment.
Ana came in for her free consultation and met Dr. Danny Chan, one of the best vein doctors in Dallas. She learned about her symptoms and how she could get relief with non-invasive treatments. Dr. Chan is a vascular specialist, an Interventional Radiologist, and he was able to diagnose Ana with CVI, or Chronic Venous Insufficiency.
CVI is a condition that develops over months or years from malfunctioning valves in the veins of the legs. Normally functioning valves prevent the backflow of blood down the legs and keeps the blood moving back towards the heart. However, the leaking valves in a patient with CVI do not hold a seal and blood pressure builds up in the lower legs leading to pooling of the blood called venous stasis. This results in swelling and pain for standing or sitting for too long—just like Ana was experiencing. CVI is more common in women, especially those with multiple pregnancies. It can affect mothers of all ages and cause tired, heavy legs.
Dallas Vein Doctors Treat Tired, Heavy Legs as Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI)
To treat Ana’s swollen and tired, heavy legs, Dr. Chan, an expert in his field, performed ablations. To explain ablation, an experienced doctor, such as Dr. Chan or one of the other qualified professional interventional radiologists at Precision VIR, inserts an Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) Catheter to collapse and close enlarged leg veins. After the vein is sealed shut, blood then naturally re-routes to healthy veins.
The procedure is non-invasive and less painful than surgery. It has a much faster recovery than traditional surgery; patients return to their daily activities the following day. That allowed Ana to get back to being a mom and taking care of her family quickly.
Ana is so pleased with the results! She has a lot less swelling and tiredness in her legs, and they feel less heavy. “It was an easy procedure with great results!” she says. Now Ana can focus on her family and not the discomfort in her legs. Where does she hope her new legs will take her? To the zoo with her kids!
