In brief: Stay active

Loosing weight if you are over weight, walking and exercise, wearing compression stockings, and avoiding lifting with the legs help prevent progression of disease.

Also, avoid standing or sitting with legs down for prolonged periods of time. Try to elevate legs to above the heart level when at rest.

In brief: See a vein Dr

Vv can be easily treated with laser ablation with great success.

In brief: Walking, cosultation

See a colo-rectal surgeon to discuss possible colonoscopy, sphincterotomy.
Meanwhile stool softeners are good for avoiding further trauma to the anus. Get in a lukewarm tub after a painful bowel movement. Swimming is great for legs.
