Has anyone out there had treatment for their varicose veins? I go in Thursday for a Radiofrequency Ablation. I am getting very nervous, and want to hear other people's experiences. From what I understand, they put a cathater in the calf of my leg, run some kind of probe up the vein, and heat the vein so it collapses. I am a big chicken! They don't knock you out for it, but I had to pick up 2 valium to take when I get to the doctor's office. What will this make me feel like? Will I truly not care that they are poking something up my leg? Please reassure me!!!!
