OK it’s lunchtime again and I realise this is probably not the most appetizing content to enjoy while dining, but I thought I would share this (graphic) video of how varicose vein stripping surgery is done. No, it isn’t a video of my actual surgery (hmm, 30 incisions would make for a long video) but it shows quiet clearly how it’s done. Not for the squeamish…

Alors, c’est l’heure de diner encore et je réalise que ceci n’est probablement pas le contenu le plus appétissant à savourer en dinant, mais je crois que je vais partager cette vidéo (assez directe) qui démontre comment se fait l’éveinage de veines varices. Non, ce n’est pas une vidéo de ma chirurgie (30 incisions … ca serai longue comme clip)… mais ca montre assez clairement comment c’est fait. Ce n’est pas pour les prudes…

Well, I have to be AT the hospital in Montreal at 7:45 a.m. tomorrow morning to (once again) go through my pre-admission tests necessary before my vascular surgery. It lasts about 4 hours (most of it waiting, trust me) and involves multiple blood samples and also (of course) peeing in a cup.

Usually rush hour on a Friday morning in the Greater Montreal Area isn’t so bad, but I’ll be setting my alarm for 6am nonetheless.

I get to eat breakfast (yay) …

Hopefully this time I will actually get to the OR on surgery day (in less than 2 weeks!) and not be bypassed for more serious vascular surgery cases (ie… cardiovascular emergencies!)

Stay tuned for the most in-depth photo blog on varicose vein surgery you have ever seen on the net ;)
