I had EVLA to get rid of a varicose vein located in the back of my calf. Shortly after the surgery, another one appeared—uglier and located in the same leg, snaking down the front. If I get more surgery, will I have more, awful veins? Will I ever get beautiful legs back? My legs were beautiful before the surgery, except for that one horizontal varicose vein, but it was kind of hidden in the back of my leg. I did it to finally get rid of spider veins, but I didn't know there would be a trade off.
I'm getting EVLA for my varicose veins in my left leg. They made my last pregnancy miserable due to the pain and swelling. Do I have to wait for a while after the procedure to get pregnant again? Are there any contraindications of getting pregnant shortly after this procedure?
Had GSV ablation five days ago with prior swelling and redness in my leg for years. I was also diagnosed with chronic DVT in the same leg. Will I see reduction in redness or swelling at all, and how long will it take?
I had EVLT along the entire great saphenous vein with minimal pain for the two weeks following. All of a sudden for the last few days I'm experiencing a lot of pain in my inner thigh. In the morning I wake up with little to no pain at all but by the end of the day it feels very painful to walk. I had EVLT on the other leg a week earlier and did not experience the same pain. Also most of my bruising is gone, except for redness in the painful area. What could this be?
My surgeon signed me off after my eight week check. He did an ultrasound and said it looked OK. He said to exercise, take Ibuprofen if it was sore, and that I was still healing. If I exercise, it then gets so swollen by the evening that I can't bend it. The pain wakes me at night. When walking it feels like a knife in the side of my knee. I will see my GP, but not for 2 weeks! What should I do?
Which one has no pain or side effects? My diagnosis is to use UGFS along with ablation. Which ablation is less painful and risky, laser or radiofrequency?
Venaseal is another option but no insurance covers them.
I'm a hairdresser always, and on my feet. I have varicose veins in both legs. I had thread vein treatment post op privately to remove clusters but they are still visible. The unsightly appearance of the veins prevent me wearing shorts or dresses.
I wanted to know if the ablation would be a possible option to banish the veins, or will they just keep coming?
It is similar to ovulation pain. Borderline protein S deficiency (72, normal range 70-140), was put on 10mg Xarelto for 10 days and then 20mg after second ultrasound came back too close for comfort given my background, third ultrasound showed clot had receded to where they wanted it. That was last week. For the past week and a half, however, I've had what I would consider nerve pain in the groin and ovary areas. It has not gotten worse and is sporadic. It is most present when sitting.
I had Endevonous laser ablation under general anaesthetic 1wk ago! So far very pleased but a bit concerned as a bumpy soft lump has appeared at the top of my thigh! It isn't painful to touch! But sore if I press on it! Bout the size v a 2p coin (UK currency) could this be a clot!? &could it be a problem!? Also I have lots v tiny stitches! Surgeon never mentioned them) are thy likely to come away? I presume theyre dissolvable sutures?
Hello! I'm a 28 year old female who just the last few years has had vein issues. I'm not overweight and am active. I had bad reflux in my right leg, so I had my right great saph. abrasion done last summer. The past 6 months I've noticed a drastic change in both my feet. Varicose veins popping out horribly. No prior problems with my feet. Did the abrasion cause this? What can I do? They're very unsightly and uncomfortable. I wear 30 mmhg compression socks.
I called my vascular surgeon and his office said it's fine. I did have the ultrasound two days after. No clots found, and they said the veins were closed. The area in my calf is still very tender but I'm ok with that. My main concern is the numbness--it is almost "painful" when I sit on the couch or toilet as it makes it worse. Do you think I could have nerve damage, or will this eventually go away? I would post a picture of my leg but this does not allow. 32y female. Thx
I had last-minute call for the varicose vein surgery and didn't really think about the other planned surgery until later. Should I be contacting the surgeon who is to carry out the abdominoplasty, or will I actually be in a better condition for surgery without my varicose veins?
I need to be in a hot room instructing--can I do it within 1-2 days after the procedure?
I want to actually practice hot yoga. How long do I wait?
How long do I wait before returning to Crossfit, and are there things I should avoid doing for a while?
How many post treatment follow up visits are needed?
I'm considering getting an ablation for my spider veins. They are very visible and I am bothered by them cosmetically. I am in shape and done having children. Is now the best time to get it done before it progresses to larger varicose veins?
