Had an ultrasound and my doctor said he has never seen a case like mine. The saphenous vein in my right leg partially opened back up half way down my thigh, but down in my calf is still closed off. So my vein is bulging filled with blood. He told me I could wait and see what happens or have the procedure done again. I was wondering is it safe to have the procedure done 2 months after my first procedure?
I'm a tall 31yr old female and have been getting quickly worsening varicose veins over the past 2-3 years. Active in sports when younger, had some injuries.I have also had persistent problems with my left foot (same leg as this extra vein) since I was a child, and the toes became clawed and I have had 3 surgeries trying to correct the pain caused by them. I have joint hypermobility and already arthritis in back and knees, fused C5/6 vertebrae, and lumbosacral scoliosis. Is all this connected?
I am 40 years and controlled diabetic on Glycomet 500mg. I developed varicose eczema and a skin biopsy confirmed the same. The Venous Doppler Examination on both the Lower Limb findings are :1. Major perforator incompetence, only on right leg below knee where the varicose eczema. No evidence of varicose veins or DVT. Vein Specialist suggested to Tab - Clopilet-A and Ulcer-X stockings on right leg. What is best & permanent treatment?
The small painful lump is located where my old visible varicose veins were from before the procedure. The lump is painful to touch but mildly sore when up on my feet when I walk toward the end of the day.
I am a teacher and am constantly walking and on my feet. I am having these procedures on both legs over an eight week period. It is scheduled to begin right before school starts and I need to know what kind of time I should expect to take off.
Is it a known complication of the surgery? I've had both legs done, but only one leg is still swollen (the one that had the biggest varicose problem). I've heard of compartment syndrome, could it be it?
I am having some very strange feelings in my foot two days after my surgery and have gotten worst in next week. After I put my compression socks on I have had to take a couple of pills. Is this normal?
Also, all the phlebectomy incisions were at least 3/4" wide and closed with staples (a total of 25 staples to be exact). Everything I had read and seen online says the procedure doesn't require staples or sutures and the veins are removed through tiny holes with a tool. Why was my procedure so different? I didn't realize it was until afterwards, when I did a Google search. And no one even told me I had staples in my leg. I found out on day 2 when I unwrapped the leg and showered.
My cardiologist did the ultrasound last week after it was noted that I have a scarcely visible varicose vein on my right leg near the calf, and sometimes witness a cramp in the calf. No other symptoms. No DVT. Venous insufficiency (reflux) involving RGSV, LGSV, RSSV, LSSV. They want to do a endovenous ablation of the affected vessel. I would rather wait, until I become really symptomatic, which I realize will eventually happen as this condition will get worse with time. I'm 81 years old and fit.
My doctor went in two inches below the knee and now the inner back side of my knee to the entry site hurts. It's red and swollen and I can't fully extend or bend leg at the knee. Surgery was two weeks ago. Is this normal?
Last year, my leg pain started and two weeks after, I had extreme pressure in low back and circling around me. After many tests, they took out my hardware from a fusion I had at L5 L4 in 2012. My fusion worked and I felt great until a few months ago after getting off a plane the legs started hurting and then the pressure started again.
I had hardware taken out Feb 27 2015 and so far I still have the pressure. The leg pain is back after having an ablation on each leg. Is this normal?
I have an appointment with a vein specialist in a few weeks to discuss whether the compressions stockings helped or not (wore them for 3 months). I have reflux in both legs, taking almost 6 seconds for the valves to close, between 5-6mm in size, and restless legs, heaviness, etc. I am considering the endovenous vein ablation, but I need to know how long I could possibly be out of work. What can I expect?
