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.
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?
I am scheduled for 3 days of back therapy next week, with twice a week for 3-4 more weeks after. Today I had a phlebectomy on my right leg. Should I continue with this therapy, or will it jeopardize the results of the phlebectomy?
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?
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.
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?
I had laser ablation and plebectomy on my right leg with good results. I want to have, at least some phlebotomy on the left leg again. Is it better to do the procedure now or wait until after I give birth? The reason I am anxious about waiting to have the procedure is that I am getting these increasing blue spots up the sides (particularly inner side) of my leg and I am afraid those will get worse and stick around.
I had a VNUS procedure completed on both of my legs one week ago. I wore stockings day and night for three days, and during the day for one week. I've been walking a lot (at least one hour per day) and I'm in good health. My legs feel good and the follow-up scan went well. When I remove the stockings at night before bed, I've noticed the spider/bulging veins look worse. I know healing takes time and sclerotherapy is sometimes required post VNUS, but should I contact my doctor?
I had an ablation and microphlebectomy done on my right leg Friday. I put compression hose on Sunday. I still have swelling in my foot. The swelling is where the ace wrap stopped about an inch from my toes. I've been walking as much as possible and elevating it when I sit. Is that normal?
