I went to the ER in pain and the ultrasound shows thrombophlebitis of saphenous vein at the femoral junction. The ultrasound tech said she could push it down the deep vein system with pressure. Sarasota Memorial Hospital ER sent me home and said to take some baby aspirin and contact a vascular specialist and pain management specialist. I am in a lot of pain. The ultra sound tech was more concerned than the doctor who did nothing for me.
I had both GSV ablation done at the same time. He also performed phlebectomy on both legs, although I had my right done previously. I developed these symptoms 6 days after surgery. Fever 102 F, chills, redness around incision and extreme pain. After 7 days of antibiotics, my Dr. said the pathology showed no infection. Although I'm starting to feel better I still have a lot of drainage from wound site. My skin around the incision is extremely sensitive to the touch. It's hard to walk normally.
The weight training would be lat pull downs, upper back exercises, bicep/tricep work, chest press and abdominal work such a crunches. Also, I'd engage in stretching exercises such as quad stretching, hamstring and calf stretching, upper body stretches and mobilization exercises for the lower back. Any contraindication of these exercises, or should I wait another week or 2 weeks to workout?
I am a competitive road bike cyclist and have recently had a radiofrequency ablation of the saphenous vein on both legs. I have been wearing compression stockings for the past 2 1/2 weeks. Is there any exercise restrictions, including stretching, that would not be advised? I have been walking daily and just started the stationary bike today for 20 min. At what time may I resume riding my road bike, and should I stay on level flat roads and not do hills for awhile?
She wears them because she is very much overweight and chooses not to move around much. She hasn't showered in 3 months and with new DHS rules, we can't do much about anything. It's horrible. I worry she's doing something harmful by not taking them off.
One leg had a very small vein. After a closure and 2 stents, I have nerve pain, new veins, abdominal pain, and can't stand up/walk upright. The closure was 11 months ago; 7 months with swelling and pain in shins. The nurses treated me and last saw the doc 5 months ago. I feel betrayed that he told me new veins "happen" and I would have to pay for cosmetic treatment. I am worse off, tired and believe the 2 stents were unnecessary for a "valve" problem in one leg. I was not shown the US either.
I had a cryoablation, and this resulted in damage to the femoral artery. After an ultrasound scan, a pseudo aneurysm was found in my groin. It was treated with a thrombin injection, but I still have an egg-shaped swelling in my groin as well a bruising on my upper leg. I am due to fly to Spain on Monday and wonder if this could be a problem.
I'm recovering from an extensive DVT that affects my whole leg; it was caused by a clot in my inferior vena cava filter. So, even if I'm getting better now and the waist band is not too tight, circulation is still slow and I'm starting to notice these swollen veins on my waist when I take my compression stockings off. Is there anything I can do to prevent this? Thank you in advance.
I had a blood clot 4 weeks ago in my leg and lungs. I'm on Xarelto. I was feeling 100% until this past Monday, when I went and shot some hoops by myself and ran up and down the court. I did so pain-free, but when I got home my ankle, foot and calf became really swollen. It has been 4 days and it hasn't gotten better. No pain, but am concerned. Is this normal? I already have a visit with my GP next Friday. Should I try and get in sooner? Thank you.
Several years after a VNUS closure to my inner left thigh, I still get very sharp pain a few times per month. Should I be concerned? There was a complication the first time that caused an infection by breaking procedure. It has come and gone since the procedure. Is this anything to be concerned about?
The lumps are very painful. I can't wear my comp socks because its painful to touch the area and I can barely bend my knee. It is very similar to the "charlie horse" pains I had prior to the surgery. When I first stand from sitting, I have horrible shooting pains and can't bear to put weight on my leg. I elevate it every night and still take pain meds and Nabumetone. I have Fibromyalgia, maybe that contributes. Can I use heating pad? Or light messager, and/or with heat option? Cold feels worse.
Occasionally, I wear my compression hose (thigh high) to bed only to awaken with a tremendously painful red sore on the top of my right big toe. Is there a remedy for the sore or am I wearing the compression hose for too long? Or should I get open toe compression hose?
In 2006, I underwent an artificial lumbar disk implant. This failed causing artificial disk to move into the spine. While surgeon removed the artificial disk implant, he nicked the illiac vein. This resulted in a blood hemorrhage, and several blood transfusions. I formed a blood clot in my lower right back leg. (DVT). I have developed venous insufficiency in the right leg. Am I susceptible to a DVT again?
