My cell phone won't let me edit the description so here it is... My boyfriend has had a problem with a varicose vein for about 4 years now. He has gone through 3 surgeries so far, 2 of which were in the last 6 months, and neither has helped. He recently had his 3rd surgery a couple weeks ago and he's still healing. The varicose veins are extremely painful and he has to take vicodin to ease the pain. The strange thing is that he gets the pain especially after he sees me, particularly after we makeout. After that he's usually in pain for about 2 days. It's extremely frustrating and sad. He's had to give up paddling, which was his life. His problem is keeping him from doing the things he wants to do and it's almost taken total control over his life. Can anyone help him?
