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?
My procedure was 24 hours ago and the fluid is still coming out. It's coming out very slowly near my knees and by my groin. The fluid is mostly clear — no odor. There's no heat coming off my legs and I feel fine except for my clothes being wet.
