Endovenous Laser Ablation Questions

The saphenous vein in my leg partially opened back up 2 months after ablation therapy, is it safe to have the procedure done again?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 3 weeks ago
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?

For my endovenous laser ablation w/phlebectomies, I had general anesthesia. Now I've read it's usually done under local. Why was mine different?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 3 months ago
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 right and left SFJ, GSV and SSV has a mild insufficiency at 1 sec and measures 4-5mm. No discomfort noted. Do I need a VNUS closure?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 4 months ago
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.

I have pressure in my lower back and pain in the legs after ablation. Is this normal?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 5 months ago
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?

How long is the recovery for an endovenous vein ablation procedure?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 5 months ago
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?
