Is normal the leg been swollow???
I did the vein cloure 3 days ago, I don't feel pain, but my leg is very swollen, this is normal? Also, I'm scheduled to do the other leg in a month, can I skip this???
Hello - yes, this can be seen immediately after the procedure. It is nearly always temporary, and will resolve. Please wear the compression stockings as you may have been instructed to; they will help "squeeze" the extra blood upwards to reduce the swelling.
