I have had a varicosed vein in my left leg for 12 yrs. w/ recurring thrombophlebitis. Last month I had a DVT and subsequent PE. Now being treated w/ warfarin for minimum of 6 months. So I want to open up a discussion on the possibility of the benefit of having the "closure procedure" performed on the varicosed veins, which seemed to be root of my problem. I have recently (since the DVT/PE) talked to a Dr office that performs the procedure. I explained to them my current health status. I have not had an official screening done yet, but over the phone they proclaim that it will close the vein and prevent further DVT. Guess I felt like I was being "sold" on the procedure. Why don't we see more information on this associated with DVT, if indeed it is helpful. My Dr says usually the varicosed superficial veins are not the culprit leading to DVT. I have accepted that until now. Any feedback from you is appreciated.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
