The left leg went well, but the right leg was a nightmare since I was very suddenly diagnosed with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura while receiving vein treatment. The ITP caused me to have a very heavy and unmanageable period with heavy blood loss and all the purpura all over my body. Ever since all this happened, my right leg wouldn't heal and I had to have a platelet transfusion since I was dangerously low with platelet levels. My leg looks discolored and scary, how long will this last?
I am 29, male. I had my RFA procedure done on my mid-thigh to groin area 4 days ago and also had stab-phlebectomy on other bulging veins on thigh and part of legs. My question is two-part. My surgeon did RFA procedure from mid-thigh to Groin. So this is partial ablation, I assume (she said remaining vein is superficial in nature). Is this normal to have partial abltaion? I have remaining bulging veins around the ankle and foot. Do they get resolved on their own? Or do I need scelrotherapy?
I'm a 19 year old male. I am very skinny (I guess around 8% body fat) and I have very palpable and visible great saphenous veins. They are straight (not twisting), colorless to very light blue, and rather firm. They run from my mid-thigh all the way to my feet. Branches of the vein are also palpable and visible. I have had this all my life, but now it's more extreme. Veins in arms are the same but less firm. There's discomfort in legs during hot weather, but no swelling or color change.
The Pain is in the left, top side of my foot, just under my pinky toe joint and it hurts worse if I touch it or walk on it—especially if I push in from the side of the foot. I was instructed to wear my compression stockings for 3 days. I had the other leg done with no issues.
One clot was surgically removed, and didn't have problems for 23 years until I had ACL surgery. I now take 11mg Coumadin a day, for life. I also now live in Asia, and every hematologist I've talked to, doesn't agree about wearing them. I can't even get a prescription for them here, much less find any. Our flights are usually about 19-26 hours, total travel time.
I was just diagnosed with a varicose vein in my lower leg. Prior to diagnosis I was treating the area with a warm compress because it eased the pain. My doctor examined and diagnosed and gave me tons of tips for taking care of it, but I forgot to ask if the heat treatment is why it appears bruise-like in appearance. It's a bit red at the sight of the vein. How long before this should improve?
I had a radical prostatectomy 6 months ago and a number of lymph nodes were removed as part of this. In the last 3 months I have noticed the evening/nighttime swelling. Is this timing a coincidence, or is likely to be lymphoedema?
My inner thigh is very tender to touch, to walk, and it feels warm and still swollen. My incision points are healing. I took 10 cipro antibiotic pills over 5 days after surgery. I took ibuprofen for 10 days 2x 600 mg, but have now stopped. I have been walking with a cane a little every day since the surgery.
I am 39 and an overweight smoker. My clot came on very suddenly. It hurts to touch it, or to walk. I have been given a prescription for blood thinners, but they are very expensive. How long before the pain will subside? The swelling has gotten worse almost every day, and I can see and feel that the clot has moved down by my knee now. According to my ultrasound, the clot is approx 8cm in size. I have been told by one doctor that it can't break off into my lungs, but others disagree.
I am currently having compression bandages put on my leg/ankle area 3 times per week. The doctor stated he has never seen this before. Is there something I can do? This is extremely frustrating and a complication I had no idea could occur. Please help!
I have a blister (sore) on my ankle after sclerotherapy treatment that won't heal—it's been almost 2 months. I've seen a dermatologist because I initially didn't associate it with the treatment. She said if I did have an injection in that area that it could happen. Don't know why it won't heal up and go away...the doctor who did the procedure has not called back yet.
I have reached out to my provider. They said 4 to 6 weeks before it returns to normal. Color is still off especially when I am on it. I have no idea how to care for my leg. Just had hysterectomy April 13 which led to the recent clot. I just need to know the to do's and not to do's. I will see a hematologist June 8th, but I need help now.
