I was diagnosed with chronic venous insufficiency and mild May-Thurner syndrome 4 years ago. I have never been pregnant. I manage the problem daily with compression socks and a low-salt diet. Both legs swell every day, the right one especially. Is it too high risk to get pregnant? I am a 32-year-old female. Also, should I look into stenting?
I have had a deep vein clot for six months now and my thigh pain is getting worse. I also have a clot in the superfical vein on the side of my leg. I was told they are both large. Is there anything I can do to open/remove them or get rid of the pain?
I Have had stripping, ligation, injections.I am a normal weight try to be active although with exercise of any kind my leg hurts after. I don't have all the bulging of the veins but with standing my leg goes darker and my foot swells and ankle.
It has been one year since the clot. I wear full-length compression stockings all day. Is there any chance of the clot recannalizing, or is this it for me? I walk/jog and go to the gym, but my leg swells and gets tired. I want to be normal. Can I try vein stenting again, or is there a better procedure you can recommend?
