I was recently diagnosed with lupus with interstitial lung disease. I'm now on 20mg prednisilone and 400mg hydroxychloroquine daily.
I have had mild varicose veins for years, but the last few months of enforced inactivity have made them much worse. In fact, this week, one leg has been causing me a great deal of pain - well beyond anything that is manageable with support stockings and elevation etc.
I will be seeing my GP next week, but wondered if anyone has any experience of varicose vein surgery in this situation? Any questions or issues I should be especially mindful of?
(Just to complicate matters, my leg already has a femoral nail and bolts, as a result of an accident 3 yeas ago - so it's not a straightforward situation to start with!)
