Vericose Vein removal, is it dangerous?

Hi All! I am contiplating having a fairly large vericose vein in my left leg removed. It would be the length from groin to ankle that I am sure they would remove. I can only see about 6 inches of it. But they usually remove the whole thing.

Has anyone had this done? Is it dangerous? Is there a chance I could die from this? I would love to hear any stories good or bad. Thanks!

Hi...i have the same problem with a large varicose vein in my left leg and would like to get it removed but am nervous about the outcome. I just wanted to know if u went along with the procedure and if you're glad that u did it.
