First find you a deep muscle massage therapist & have him work in the pelvic area. It will help greatly, you probally will still have to have surgery but not for a while. I have had 4 surgeries, not exactly for the the veins, but hysterectomy 2 times. I have to take hormones, but it is still worth it not to have pain. Also go get a deep muscle massage before you have surgery (like the night before the surgery) it works wonderful. You don't have as much pain . Go to GNC store & get 1000 mg of glutamine tablets. Take 6 2 times a day. That came from preventive cures under cronic pain. I sell an oinment that relieves menstrual cramps as well as many other things. It is called Sun Breeze from Sunrider-they have been in business for about 15 years. They are now in several countries. The company is all natural it doesn't sell anything that will hurt you in any way. If you are interested in this let me know.
