I'm not exactly sure what its called to tell you the truth. I'll find out and let you know.......and as far as things healing themself........it just doesn't happen....if it hasn't happened yet, it won't.....at least thats my standpoint. I've had a couple different injuries over the years where I was told to do just that and my body did always heal it enough where it didn't physically hurt......but things never seem to work right again without surgical intervention.

CUT ME OPEN!" >good to hear about your problem being focused. Is the procedure that they're going to do on you called a Venous Ligation?
