What can I do about having to stand up all day during work if I have lymphedema and vein insufficiency?
Treat the veins: I would recommend that you wear graduated compression stockings and have the veins treated by evla or vnus and foam sclerotherapy. I generally recommend that you wear thigh high stockings with a compression of a minimum 20 to 30 mmhg (class i) but prefer the 30 to 40 mmhg (class ii). Treatment of the underlying venous insufficiency will likely improve the swelling. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Probably not: Fatigue in pregnancy is extremely common, but in women where this might be exaggerated, a review of things like your blood counts (looking for anemia) should be discussed. And yes, women in pregnancy are prone to blood clots especially if they are 'immobilized'. So, during the day, get up and move around when you are awake every couple of hours. ...Read more
