Best Foot Forward

After the varicose veins were removed from my leg last Monday, I had to wear a compression stocking for five days (or more if I felt like it).

The stocking is opaque and hides the blacks and blues, scabs and hairs on my healing leg. But being opaque, it gives me a good idea how my leg will look after it is healed and shaved.

I was anxious to see how my leg will look in girl mode, so Sunday I applied minimal makeup, slipped on my wig and undies and took some selfies while posing in a few outfits. The best selfie of the photoshoot appears in the "About Stana" slot in the right hand column of this blog.

Doctor says it will take about a month to heal and when that occurs, I plan to slip on a pair of sheer hose, dress to nines and go out to celebrate.

  1. Stana, definitely looking great. Wishing you fast healing.

  2. Hi Stana,

    Would that we could all look that good with minimal makeup -- you look fabulous! Does the compression stocking means you won't have to shave your legs? Do you have to wear a matched pair ;-)? Hope the healing goes well and you'll soom be wearing normal stockings!

    1. The compression stocking would effectively hide the hairiest legs, but they look thick and the color is ugly. I wore a matched pair for the photo, but I only had to wear one on my left leg for medical reasons. The leg is healing faster than I expected, so that is good news.

    Perhaps there is a 'backstory' to the photo of the two 'brothers'?
