1 doctor agrees

In brief: Evaluate by Vein Dr

Varicose veins could still be the problem. First question is what type of Sonogram did they do.
Most common is a check for deep vein thrombosis which does nothing to look for venous insufficieny (problem that leads to varicose veins). Needs a specific ultrasound to look for venous insufficiency or reflux in the superficial veins. Sonogram 1 year ago could be normal and now have insufficiency
