I've had vein ablation and microphlebectomies on both legs, and I am asking about the preventative aspect furthermore. Can I wear daily office shoes with 2.5 inches? How high is the heel limit to be working with the calf muscle?
Are there chances of reoccurence? I've done EVLA+microphlebectomy on one leg seven years ago (and the leg is fine) and RFA+microphlebectomy on the other leg week ago. Just to add, my varicose veins were not inherited, and I am a young woman in her 20s.
I'm considering getting an ablation for my spider veins. They are very visible and I am bothered by them cosmetically. I am in shape and done having children. Is now the best time to get it done before it progresses to larger varicose veins?
I am a female in her 20s and would like to know the following:
1.How do I prevent this issue from coming back again?
2. What kind of exercises are best?
3. What kind of shoes should I wear formy 8-hour office job (talking in heel inches)?
4. What do I need to avoid?
Thanks in advance.
This is my left leg. I had my right leg done a month ago, and I don't remember this much pain. It feels like the surgical area hardened and feels like fluid in my thigh, but I remember last time they said that your muscles will swell due to the pumping of fluid into my leg and that I need to work out the muscle. So now I'm not sure if it's the vein or the muscle I'm feeling. Should I call the doctor, or should I go to ER?
I wear compression socks because I'm overweight and on my feet all day. I get some slight swelling in my left ankle, but lately my two last toes have been cramping; even now with the socks off. Why is this happening?
I notice it more when I'm in bed and it's really driving me crazy, as I can't sleep. Is there anything I can take, or some kind of cream I can put on it to relieve the pain? I went back to the surgeon yesterday and he checked it. He said it should go away on it's own, but could take 9 months to a year. At the moment, the thought of having to put up with that feeling for so long is terrible.
A week later, I went to the ER. Currently taking clindamycin. Leg is numb from below knee into the foot when standing. When laying down, I don't have the numbness. Is it something to do with blood flow after having an EVLT surgery on the GSV?
I am overweight and on returning from a holiday in the sun, my legs swelled. The left was worse, and within three days, water was leaking out of the leg. Because the leg is in wet bandages, it has caused sores that are not healing. I'm waiting for an operation on the discs in my spine, but they will not admit me because of open wounds. How should I proceed?
Can you tell me are there any post-operative and long-term risks after this intervention? I want to accentuate that I am a woman in her late 20s with no prior pregnancies, but I plan on getting pregnant soon. Will this intervention affect my fertility or gestation? Also, I had EVLT combined with extripation on the other leg about 10 years ago.
I'm in my early 30's. My doctor said that my varicose vein will be a lifelong problem because it is inherited and genetic. If I get treated, how long can I expect the results to last? How often would I have to go in to get EVLT treatments?
I have the OK from my doctor to do some short easy runs for the next two weeks. I usually do so before I run to help keep my muscles loose and warmed up. With the procedure, I wasn't sure if the pressure on my leg would be harmful or not (I would not directly roll the spots that were treated, just other spots on my leg). Is this possible?
Suddenly, I started experiencing sharp, stabbing pain midway between the top and bottom of the inside of my foot. This area seemed to be extremely constricted by the stockings, so I stopped wearing them after two days. The pain continues and is at its worst after rest when I stand up to walk or stretch or move my foot. Any ideas?
