Hi Lise, thanks for the information, Dr Tan was very accommodating in this regard. However I live in Auckland and he is in Wellington, which would mean if I fly will take 1hr and if I drive will take 6 hrs. I have a son of 6 and it would be rather difficult to tag him along. (even though he would love to fly). Dr Tan will be informing me of another surgeon here in Auckland. I am a bit sceptical, and I have to go for an ultrasound to check if my veins are ok. With this being done,and suggested by Dr Tan (apparently my syptoms with age can deteriorate) that I should have this done, what I need to find out is if anyone has had this done, and if there was any change to their pws? I might be wrong but if this operation is done, and the blood flow is corrected will this not help the pws and not be soooo red or purple? looking forward to your response. Thanks Lee
