Smile VM in your Daughter's leg.

Hi,
My daughter is 11 and has had a VM in her right leg since birth. She has had 3 sclerosing procedures at Swedish Medical Center, Denver, CO. Her success has been very good with little to no growth in the VM, visually from outside, till now. She has always worn custom compression stocking on her right leg, from around 2 years of age. Now she fits into smallest made ones over the counter. These have worked. I noticed recently that the vein has grown a little on the outside of her leg, and my feeling is that the reason is that she has not been wearing the stocking for a while. We will go back to wearing the stocking more now due to this. Feel free to chat about this any time. Regards, Sylvia
