My doctor recommended radiofeqency ablation and foam sclerotherapy on my leg. What are the risks involved with these procedures?
Varicose Veins - 4 days ago1 answer
I obtained a detailed ultrasound of my leg. I have a few varicose veins. One of the veins is the great saphenous vein. The other vein is located in my knee. I have worn compression stockings for at least two and a half years now. I notice I'll have a few good days with hardly any pain but then I'll have days with constant aches. Two separate doctors have recommended treatment but I'm scared of the negative consequences of treatment. However, I'm only 30 and would like to live a quality life.

I had ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy in both legs in 2013, and now I have truncal reflux, pain, more veins and swelling in one leg. Why?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 4 days ago2 answers
My right leg is two inches wider than my left. The surgeon gave that leg more injections. I've recently seen someone who says that since the procedure was done I now have lipodema and reflux in my truncal veins. Can scierotherapy make this condition worse and cause pain, swelling and fluid? What can I do to improve? Thank you.

Compression Stockings - 6 days ago1 answer
I am nervous about flying while pregnant. My prescription for full length maternity compression stockings does not specify which strength I should use. I would like to know what strength of compression stockings would be safest and best for me on the long flight. Thank you!

I have swelling and discomfort on my legs above my knee-high compression stockings. Is this normal?
Compression Stockings - 1 week ago1 answer
When I wear my compression knee-high socks, the lower legs feel OK, but right above the stockings, the tissue is swollen and causing discomfort. I have recently had veins closed in the upper-inside area of my thighs and lower-back calves. I will have a very large vein stripped and removed in about 20 sections on the 1st of March on my right leg.

I am in a lot of pain after multiple sclerotherapy sessions. How long will this last?
Sclerotherapy - 1 week ago1 answer
I am 71 years old. I had three sessions of sclerotherapy, and one final session to remove six blood spots. This has taken five months and I am still in a lot of pain. I have done cold compresses, worn support stockings during the day, and walk daily for exercise. It's hard to relax and hard to sleep. The pain keeps me up and walking. I can't sit. What should I do to relieve the pain?

Or should I wear 20-30 mmhg compression amount (it's a 13 hour flight). Is it dangerous to wear 20-30 mmhg if a doctor has not prescribed that amount?
