We are traveling from Chicago to Hawaii 2 weeks after EVLT, with a stop in Pheonix, AZ. I've scoured answers on the site to determine when is a good time to fly after the procedure, but I've noticed that the timeframes are different depending on the doctors. Why is this?
I am a 22-year-old woman with blood clotting disorders. I had my varicose vein removed on Thursday, August 27th. It was the large medial vein and was removed from my knee to my groin. The doctor said to wear the compression hose until I had no pain in my leg. I am not sure what to do since I haven't had any pain. Should I wear them regardless of whether I'm experiencing pain? If so, for how long?
I have deep vein issues at age 53. The doctors on this site recommend not wearing support hose at night, only when awake and not lying down. So, do I need to wear support hose when I wake up at night to urinate? I have been doing that and it takes a long time to put the stockings on.
Three months after endoveous laser ablation surgery on my leg, the veins are still prominent and lumpy. A scan was done and it revealed that they are still there. In addition to the veins still being present, I've been experiencing numbness. What can I do about my problematic veins?
I'm a 67 year old woman who has been living with daily pain from a leg vein. I haven't been able to get a diagnosis in 4 years. I have given up trying and am defeated, but I'm tired of living with the pain and discomfort. Is it possible for the vein to right itself? Is there any exercise or supplement that will help me? Should I be thinking about keeping my blood thin?
Before veins become varicosed and looking unattractive (bulging, twisted, rope like), can doctors diagnose them on time and treat those vein before it happens? Would this mean for people who are predisposed to varicose veins regular examinations? If yes, how often, once a year or more? I live in Europe and most national health insurances (public ones, which are what most people have) don't cover laser treatments. Only stripping/ligation and in some countries sclerotherapy. Why is that?
If our body has a strong stress resisting capacity how can weightlifting aggravate varicose and spider veins? Also, CVI is hereditary yet some veins specialists suggest that weight lifting is very strenuous and should not be performed by people suffering from CVI. Average athletes however, intake enough nutrients to maintain the veins valves healthy.
I had 2 procedures, for both side vein incompetence, but after the second, in which he says he went in quite aggressively with coils around right buttock. It is still so sore 6 weeks in I can't lie down easily at night and is painful. Will this ever clear? Is it a done mistake and I'll just be much worse from now on than pre-op? Feeling quite desperate.
