It is not urgent to undergo vein ablation for refluxing superficial veins.

Question: My vein mapping test showed reflux and weak veins. The test was done because of pain in leg and varicose veins. I had a DVT in that leg 2 years ago. Is the procedure to correct this urgent? Can it be delayed or not done at all?

Answer: It is not urgent to undergo vein ablation for refluxing superficial veins. Although the pain may persist until you can have the procedure performed, it is not considered an urgent condition.
