Anyone else have had veinus closure surgery?

I had my 3rd of 4 surgeries this morning.  The first surgery was over one year ago on my right leg and it was fairly painless. The second was on my thigh and because my thigh was so big, it was very painful because they couldn't give me enough pain meds to numb it :(  Today was on my left thigh and it wasn't nearly as bad as my right leg.  (Being down 115lbs make s a difference!)  They had to also do an accessory vein, so it took a bit longer.  The doctor had problems feeding the catheter wire into my leg because the vein did a zig zag, but he got it!

Has anyone else had the pleasure of veinus closure?

Right now, the pain meds are wearing off and my leg is starting to hurt. Hope it fades quickly. :(

I don't have experience with this type of surgery but just wanted to say I hope you feel better soon!
