Dr. Sulkin to the Rescue
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Other Poems by Quentin Clingerman

There I was flat on my back

Right leg bare and exposed

Under attack

Prepped plus if you're asking me

Surely glad I took that pee!

Dr. Sulkin then moved right in

Took charge of that awful limb

Pricked here and there

Stood me on my head

In a few minutes

Back on my feet

Wrapped leg

One collapsed vein

Dr. Sulkin, where'd he go?


Dr. Sulkin to the Rescue(c)2007, Quentin Clingerman


Note:  A week ago I had a VNUS Closure.  It is a new treatment for varicose veins that is so much superior to stripping the vein (as I had done on my left leg a number of years ago). Little pain, none after the procedure. Back on the treadmill in a week.  Amazing!
