Since a DVT and PE in 2013 I am now stable but with Warfarin for life and these horrible pressure stockings also for life. One of the results of my illness are unsightly veins (like varicose) up my torso. I have shown them to both a nurse and GP and they are not concerned putting it down to the body finding alternative routes for blood to travel. But they look awful and I am very conscious of them. Has anyone else had this experience?
