Venous Stasis and Compression Stockings
See more » My Life is an Open Blog
Went to Duke's Wound Management Institute as I have every Friday for the last couple of months. My legs were finally well enough that they didn't wrap them. Instead they gave me a couple of pair or prescription compression stockings. They say that anyone who has ever suffered from venous stasis has to wear stockings for the rest of their life.
A nuisance but the stockings do keep your legs warmer in winter.
Actually when I was first hit with venous stasis seven years ago I was able to abandon the stockings after six months. But I riding my bike and working out every day. And my diet was stringently healthy. Another incentive to state doing the obvious and sane thing again.
I let myself get derailed during some rough times between myself and Charles. The second time I've let that happen. There's a long entry about that simmering quietly in the back of my mind.
Charles is chatting on AOL alot nowadays. That has kept me from the PC when I was in a journaling mood. We really need to become a two PC household.Warning: include(/home/edifying/public_html/pansexualsodomite//common/individual.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/richardlee/domains/pansexualsodomite.org/public_html/archives/my_life_is_an_open_blog/venous_stasis_and_compres.php on line 77 Warning: include(): Failed opening '/home/edifying/public_html/pansexualsodomite//common/individual.php' for inclusion (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php') in /home/richardlee/domains/pansexualsodomite.org/public_html/archives/my_life_is_an_open_blog/venous_stasis_and_compres.php on line 77
