    Lynzy, thank you so much for sharing this!! I also have a familial predisposition and my veins have gotten worse with each of my 3 pregnancies – exponentially so with the most recent. This is so helpful from a practical perspective of steps to take/things to look into, and also feeling less alone as I feel like no one ever talks about this issue! Thank you!

    Thank you for sharing! What a frustrating experience, but so happy you’ve made progress! I’ve had swelling in my calves in the past couple of years-it didn’t happen until after my second. I swear it’s because my legs were so fluid overloaded after my c-section that it stretched everything out. While it doesn’t appear that bad to a physician-no outright edema or anything-it feels and looks different to me and is uncomfortable at times, though nowhere near as bad as yours. I’m trying to navigate it and am glad for this information on vascular surgeon vs. IR!
