Endovenous Laser Ablation Questions

Why am I still in pain 3 months after EVLT?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 4 days ago5 answers
I had ELA on both legs 3 months ago. I developed phlebitis in my right leg, which subsided after about a month. However, the inside of my calf is still tender (not to mention numb), and the pain has recently worsened. I've noticed that my lower calf becomes sore when I walk for more than about 5 minutes. Could the phlebitis have come back?

Should I be refitted for bigger compression stockings?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 1 week ago7 answers
I really cant get them up or off. I thought something was wrong when it took 3 male nurses to pull them on. Is this normal/ after surgery? I had bilateral endovenous ablation. The compression socks they put on are so tight; they cut off the blood flow. It took 3 male nurses to pull them up. I can't put them up or on either. Is this normal? Should I be refitted for a larger stocking?

Endovenous Laser Ablation - 3 weeks ago2 answers
Six months ago I had varicose vein surgery. I've been experiencing bad pain. I went back to see the consultant & had a scan, He said everything is working fine and that it must be the effects of the surgery. We'll that does not help me as I'm in pain & getting pins & needles in my leg, especially in a morning. I've tried all pain relief and nothing has been working. I'm using Volrol cream now as it seems to work a bit. What should I do? Is any of this normal? What could be going on?

I have pain in my left upper thigh region after EVLA and microphlebotomy. The pain is above the area that was treated. Is this normal?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 1 month ago1 answer
I developed thrombophlebitis a month ago in my left leg. I waited 2 weeks before having EVLA and microphlebotomy of my calf. The blood clot has not gone down. The doctor said he tried to aspirate it but it was too hard. He told me to wear stockings for 2 weeks and I have (mild discomfort). Over the last 4 days I have been having left upper inner thigh pain. This is above the treatment site. The blood clot also looks like it is getting bigger. Is any of this normal? What should be done now?

My doc recommended EVLA but can't guarantee a successful outcome. What are my other options?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 2 months ago5 answers
I went to two different board-certified doctors and had an ultrasound performed. EVLA has been recommended, but I haven't made a decision about it yet. I only have one area with unsightly green reticular veins; they are in the front, at the top of my inner thigh. They can't guarantee that ELVA will resolve the problem for sure. What other options do I have then?

How do I know it's the right time to have vein ablation treatment?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 3 months ago4 answers
I had a vein ultrasound and although there were no signs of thrombosis, I seem to have 1 long vein in each leg that isn't working properly. Instead of the blood flowing in one direction, it is flowing in both. The MD recommended vein ablation and I did schedule it, but am now having second thoughts and concerns over secondary veins bulging after this treatment. Is it best to hold off on the ablation until it's absolutely necessary? The veins are deep under the skin and don't bother me too much.

3 months after EVLA, I suddenly feel heaviness and numbness below my knee. What could be causing this?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 3 months ago1 answer
EVLA was performed on my left leg 3 months ago. Everything was fine until the last 2 weeks. I feel heaviness and numbness in the treated area (below the knee). This heaviness is only felt when I remove my compression socks. There is no pain or swelling, and I don't have any difficultly walking. Based on this, what would you say is wrong? What should I do?

Last week she was having pain in her left leg, especially the back of the knee and her calf. She got a scan done and the physician said nothing was wrong with the veins. Today she is not able to walk. There is no redness or swelling. Could this be deep vein thrombosis?
