Vein disease treatment in New Jersey has its challenges. One of which is being a varicose vein removal expert in New Jersey and trying to write informative articles about the dangers of untreated vein disease – knowing in advance how a certain percentage of our reading audience will react.
We know from experience that they’ll read the articles we post about the consequences that untreated varicose veins are going to have on their lives and their overall health, and they’ll say to themselves, “Yup, all those side effects sure sound terrible, all right. But these are things that happen to other people. My varicose veins aren’t that bad, so I don’t have to do anything about them yet.”
There is a word for what this reaction results in REGRET
The dictionary definition of regret is a feeling of sadness or disappointment over an occurrence or something that one has done or failed to do.
Varicose veins aren’t just an unsightly inconvenience. They are the surface signs of a deeper, more serious vein disease that – left untreated – is going to lead to more serious health problems. It isn’t that untreated vein disease “could” or “might” lead to more serious health problems. It will lead to them. The disease that causes varicose veins has a very clear progression – first the ugly veins themselves, then swelling in your legs and ankles, accompanied by pain that makes it more and more difficult to walk or stand for more than a few minutes. The next step of this disease progression will be changed to the skin on your legs, as it becomes discolored and brittle and susceptible to injury, often leading to bleeding leg ulcers that don’t respond to topical treatment and refuse to heal. If you’d like to see what the endpoint (ie: when someone skips vein disease treatment in New Jersey or by any professional anywhere for that matter) of this disease progression looks like, take a look at the photos on the Consequences page of our website.
This disease progression is so common that, speaking as experienced New Jersey vascular doctors, we can predict that it’s going to happen to a large percentage of people with varicose veins. And even these symptoms aren’t as bad as what the untreated vein disease is doing beneath the surface – increasing your risk of more serious conditions like obesity, diabetes, stroke, or heart disease. Would you regret it if these things happened? You bet you would.
