I had multiple phlebectomies on my left leg and EVLA on my right leg. After the procedure, I see new varicose veins (visible) on my right leg. The previous bulging veins have not completely gone yet. I presume that will take time? I had my procedure 6 days back. Should I have more veins removed?

Can someone run out of connecting system veins if too many ambulatory phlebectomies are performed?
Ambulatory Phlebectomy - 1 month ago2 answers
There are actually three levels of veins in the body: a superficial system, a deep system and a connecting system. The deep and connecting systems are not touched; therefore, once the superficial system is closed, blood will flow normally through the connecting system to the deep system without any change in the function of the leg. BUT, can one "run out" of connecting system veins at some point if too many ambulatory phlebectomies are performed?

When wearing compression stockings, is it normal that they randomly get extremely tight?
Ambulatory Phlebectomy - 2 months ago4 answers
I am post-ablation/phlebectomy and have been wearing compression hose stockings for 3 weeks. In the last week, the hose seem to randomly get tighter for about 5 to 10 min sporadically throughout the day. My stocking's compression is 20-30 mmHg.

I had a phlebectomy. Following the procedure, I developed a long blue lump that had to be drained twice. It continues to fill up. Is this normal?

I had a phlebectomy on my left leg 8 weeks ago. Following the procedure, I had many knots and developed a long blue lump (not in the area where the phlebectomy was performed) that had to be drained twice. I still have a knot on my ankle and the lump has filled up again. It is also red and sore. Is this normal? What can be done now? Also, I have a 12-hour flight scheduled in 2 days and I'm concerned. Should I wear compression stockings? Any other advice?

I had microphlebectomy 4 weeks ago in two places on my right leg. Also, on same day I had laser treatment on the same leg. All has been good, except I have noticed a warmth on my leg where one of the bulging veins was removed. Is this normal? It is just in this one area.

I have severe leg pain and edema of the lower leg following radiofrequency ablation of perforator veins and phlebotomies. What are my options now? ?
Ambulatory Phlebectomy - 5 months ago8 answers
I had radiofrequency ablation performed on my GSV. Then, one week ago, I had radiofrequency ablation of perforator veins and multiple phlebotomies. One phlebotomy bled postop twice. The bleeding stopped upon applying a pressure dressing. I continue to have severe pain upon getting out of bed, and that pain is only lessened when walking. My lower leg is edematous and a ultrasound showed no evidence of DVT. I continue to wear support hose 24/7. What should I do now?

Ambulatory Phlebectomy - 6 months ago4 answers
I had a microphlebectomy of leg, ankle, and foot veins one week ago. All the locations feel good except the inner ankle, around which 3 cuts were made. It is moderately swollen and painful. I have a follow-up in a week but was wondering if this sounds normal. I am terrified of getting an infection. Thank you.

I have sharp pain 1 week after ambulatory phlebectomy. What's going on?
Ambulatory Phlebectomy - 9 months ago3 answers
A week after my ambulatory phlebectomy procedure, I had my check-up and everything looked and felt great. That evening, I was walking leisurely on the treadmill and got this incredibly sharp, sever pain. It felt like a pop or a tear - I'm not entirely sure how to describe it other than painful, but mercifully brief (a few seconds). It has happened three times since for no apparent reason. Those times it felt like something was yanking on my veins from the inside. What could this be?

Three months after microphlebectomy on both legs, I have numbness and throbbing. Is this normal? Will these symptoms ever go away?
Ambulatory Phlebectomy - 10 months ago2 answers
Three months after microphlebectomy on both legs, I have numbness and throbbing in my left ankle. It didn't happen right away, but got worse over the last month. The left leg had three punctures from the incisions. Oddly enough, the throbbing and pressure/pain is occurring nowhere near the incisions. However, two new varicose veins have developed on and behind the interior anklebone. My right leg has no pain. Why is this happening? Will the symptoms resolve as the blood finds new pathways?

Is intense pain normal a week and a half after ambulatory phlebectomy?
Ambulatory Phlebectomy - 10 months ago6 answers
I had ambulatory phlebectomy on my lower calf & EVLT on my upper inner thigh. A small, painful lump formed in my thigh, but is better. The upper section of vein in my left calf, however, is very tender & sends sharp pain when walking. At my one-week checkup, the doc tried to drain it, but couldn't get all the blood bc I was too tense. Two days later, I am still in pain. Should I insist more be drained? I have been using ice, ibuprofen, walking regularly, arnica cream, resting, etc.

My doc sent my veins to a lab without my consent. Now I'm being charged for it. How can I keep from paying for a service action I did not agree to?

After a phlebectomy procedure, my doctor sent my veins to a testing lab without telling me. The veins were sent for his own research. The cost has been placed on me; my insurance will not cover it. How can I defend myself and keep from paying for a service/action I did not agree to?

What are the signs of hematoma after ambulatory phlebectomy and EVLT? Also, what would cause a burning sensation during an ultrasound recheck?
Ambulatory Phlebectomy - 11 months ago4 answers
I experienced severe bruising and intense pain 8 days after ambulatory phlebectomy and EVLT. I could not even touch the area from my right groin all the way down to my knee. I followed all of the doctor's orders given post-op. Upon a recheck yesterday, no infection was found, but during the ultrasound the pain upon the docs pressing the area was excruciating and I felt a burning sensation go all the way up leg. What's going on? Could I have a hematoma?
