Back to Work in No Time
With the newer approaches to varicose veins, patients can return to work after treatment frequently within one or two days and certainly within two to three days. The old two- to three-week recovery periods have pretty much been replaced.
After receiving treatment, most patients are able to resume their normal activities right away. The only restriction they may have is to avoid long periods of sitting, especially while traveling on the air or road, in order to keep the circulation moving.
Compression stockings are often recommended post-procedure to aid in recovery and comfort, and may be worn for one to several days as needed.
While it’s best to be gentle with yourself and allow for plenty of care and rest after a vein procedure, vein treatment patients respond best to a moderate level of low-impact activity during the recovery period, rather than inactivity or bed rest—making it even easier to get back into the swing of things quickly.
