I finally found a doctor who fights the insurance companies and he got the ok to have my varicose veins taken care of. The insurance company has been denying requests from other docs who don't fight back saying the surgery is cosmetic. Cosmetic?
Picture this going from the ankle to the groin.
Anyway, I finally had the left leg done this morning. The right leg will be done next week.
The sad part is that the doc said no riding for 2 weeks -- after all the surgeries are done. So no riding for me until mid July at the earliest. But he said I can walk all I want. Since I'll have to wear a compression stocking that covers my leg from the foot to the groin, I guess I'll be a "mall walker" for a while. Too hot to walk outside with that thing on my leg.
