Our only thoughts were after the procedure will be see any improvement - not even thinking that they would not be able to do the procedure because his veins were too narrow. The veins must be between at least 8mm (my husband's were only 5mm) - so they could not do the procedure. It was quite a disappointment.
If you are going to have the procedure done and are required to travel quite a distance as we did (from New Brunswick Canada to Rhode Island), try to find out, prior to your travelling, if your veins are large enough.
