Right after having endovenous laser ablation, and after the pain medication wore off, I had severe migraines. I suffered from migraines before procedure but now one year after I have severe migraines. I am now on Nortriptyline and MaxAlt to help control this. Is there any chance that the two relate?
I had EVLA and microphlebectomy on my right leg 4 wks ago to treat GSV (from SFJ to ankle) and reflux of SV (from SPJ to ankle). I am in a lot of pain from my shin to the inside of my ankle. It hurts to touch, along with numbness. Will my saphenous nerve repair itself, or is this damage permanent?
My vein feels hard 10 days after having the endovenous laser ablation to treat a varicose vein. Is hardening a normal complication? When will the area soften and return to normal? I had my 3 day post-op and no blood clots were found.
I am considering EVLT and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy based on my doctor's recommendation. How effective are the procedures? What's the chance the vein will reopen? He will be treating the GS and LS in both legs in one session. Is this too much in one day?
I had endovenous laser ablation 6mos ago. I was told that I had a clot in my calf. Now, I have swelling at my ankle and lower part of my leg when I stand at my job for 7 hours a day? How can I reduce the swelling and discomfort?
3 months after EVLA on both legs, my right leg is aching and it does not get any better with compression stockings, which worked well before the surgery. No recanalization according to the follow-up ultrasound. My right arm also hurts. What's happening? The doctor is not providing any answers.
Two years ago I had my GSV ablated, followed by phlebectomy of smaller veins. About 6 months ago I noticed swelling on the lowest part of my anterior leg. Recent MRI reports it as an area of subcutaneous edema. Has this a been a reported complication of ELA or phlebectomy? Thanks.
It's been 2 years since my endovenous laser ablation. My foot continues to swell and I have severe nerve damage from my ankle to my mid-calf. The doctor I saw has been NO help. I cannot exercise or walk long distances. I'm only 29! This can't be normal. Is there anything that can be done to resolve these problems? Suggestions?
I had endovenous laser ablation treatment December of 2013. The vein is still very hard from top to bottom, and my treated leg is very darkly bruised over almost the entire length of the original vein. It looks terrible. The doctor says he has never seen this before and is not sure how to treat it. Do you have any suggestions?
My veins were treated with ELA, but they are back and a lot worse than before. Did my doctor do something wrong? Should I just forget about it or should I go back and have the doctor see what he did wrong?
I had endovenous laser ablation a week ago on my right GSV. Everything started out fine, until my ankle started to swell when standing. I went to my doctor and he explained that this is normal. Is it? He gave me antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medicine and a compression sock. Will all of this work?
I am a 28 year old who had EVLT and experienced extreme bruising and pain after the procedure (with much follow-up with my MD). It's now been 4 months and I am still experiencing pain in the area! What could be causing this? Can this be normal?
I had endovenous laser treatment. During the first three days of recovery I had no pain. Then, over time, pain began to gradually set in. It got worse over days 4, 5 and 6. The painful areas are also a little pink and warm.. Recovery seems to be going backwards. Is this normal? If not, what should I do?
My 84-year-old mother has been scheduled to have a vein closed in her left leg, from the knee up. Is this necessary? What happens if she doesn't do it? What side effects to expect? When after that could she safely travel to Europe? She is fragile. I worry for her.
After having my veins stripped four years ago, one of my veins came back in my left leg. I decided to go for the ELA treatment; however, the doctor couldn't get the catheter into the vein because it wasn't cooperating. Can this happen?
