In brief: Regularly

If you have not had a full work-up to determine the cause of your venous stasis, then you should see a vein specialist asap, as there may be issues that can be improved or even cured to resolve the problem. If you are currently undergoing tratment and are stable, then you should be followed regularly, perhaps every 6-12 months for monitoring.
Any sudden change should be evaluated immediately.

In brief: Venous stasis

this depends upon your status.
The most important thing is to use a compression stocking. However, more importantly if there is evidence of venous reflux in the superficial system that should be taken care of as venous stasis changes will not resolve but only worsen with time if the reflux point is not addressed. This stasis is secondary to blood and product leaking under the skin

In brief: Depends

If you are having regular leg aching, heaviness, pain or if you have leg discoloration (darkening of the skin) or an ulcer near the ankles you should see your doctor about your venous stasis.
Another reason would be if your veins break through the skin and bleed. With none of the above there is no need to have varicose veins checked regularly.

In brief: Prevention needed

Need adequate compression and properly applied compression in the form of support hose.
Long term: need to address the underlying pathology and take action to help prevent recurrances. Long term: compression stockings, regardless of having surgical intervention or not.
