I have some compression socks that I wore during surgery a few years ago. I am about to go on an 11 hour flight & want to know if it's OK to wear them on the flight, or do I need specific flight socks?
I have been diagnosed with Bilateral Deep Vein Insufficiency, I am not even 40. In addition, I have incompetent saphenous vein at the saphenofemoral junction because of reflux at saphenofemoral junction. My surgeon says there's nothing to do but wear compression stockings. What does this mean for me? Can I work, should I work? Is it life threatening? He had no answers and I am scared. I requested referral to Mayo Rochester to a phlebologist.
I had EVLT along the entire great saphenous vein with minimal pain for the two weeks following. All of a sudden for the last few days I'm experiencing a lot of pain in my inner thigh. In the morning I wake up with little to no pain at all but by the end of the day it feels very painful to walk. I had EVLT on the other leg a week earlier and did not experience the same pain. Also most of my bruising is gone, except for redness in the painful area. What could this be?
Hello, I am from Greece. My son is 31 years old and has had varicose veins on one leg for nine years. It was at an advanced stage and he had surgery in a university hospital in the city of Thessaloniki. One year later there were new varices and the doctor said they still have to perform more surgery. Is this very risky because the wounds from the original surgery are still fresh.I am concerned about him losing his leg.
I am 68 yrs old an have had moderate venous insuffency for years. I am experiencing increased problems in my left lower legs with more bulging and soreness. Sometimes it feels like a cool sensation or like something wet around my ankle area. I sometimes wear compression knee-high hose. Should I see a vein specialist?
I had greater saphenous vein stripping done 12 years ago. I wear 30-40 mmHg compression knee high stockings. Lately I have had numerous abdominal surgeries and have not had injections or worn the hose regularly. I have discoloration and skin changes. My ultrasounds have shown venous insufficiency but no clots. Although I have resumed wearing the hose, stasis dermatitis is not improved. What do you recommend? I am 64.
My right leg has been swollen for 9 months now. I had rf ablation to close the greater saphenous veins, but my leg is still swollen. I've had all normal ultrasounds and a CT scan that was normal. My new vein Dr. thinks it's May Thurner syndrome. I was on the pill for 25 years. I know it's a rare condition and even more rare in the right leg, but could I have MTS with no blood clots or DVT?
I have acute pain and swelling in my leg. In the emergency room they said I had a bakers cyst. I haven't seen an orthopedic surgeon yet because I can't get around. It's very painful. Should I wear compression stockings for this condition?
I have been getting treatment for my varicose veins and had endovenous laser ablation done. About a month later, the office staff required me to have (I think saline) injected into my veins with an ultrasound guided tech helping. Why is this necessary? My small varicose veins are still visible by the way. Is this a normal practice?
