I can feel a large vein, it is quite hard, running all the way down from my upper thigh, down the inner thigh, past the knee to the lower calf - 8 months after my RFA procedure. Could this mean the great saphenous vein wasn't closed properly or is it just inflammation, even after 8 months?
In my second pregnancy I suffered from varicose veins. I had an ultrasound six weeks after delivery. According to the results, my great saphenous veins are compromised. I was told that if I treat them now, the problem may return after my third pregnancy. Is this true? If so, is it best to have my veins treated after I've finished all of my pregnancies?
I had EVLA performed on both legs. My left calf and my right hamstring have part of the vein filled with blood, and it feels very tight/tender. My calf looks dark and the vein in my hamstring you can only feel when seating or touching. It's been 3 weeks since my calf was treated and 2 weeks since my hamstring was treated. Does the blood need to be drained, or will it drain out on its own? Also, what do I do about the tenderness and tightness?
I had an endovenous laser ablation and phlebectomy 1.5 yrs ago. I also had some injections 9 months ago. I am 8 months pregnant and the treated leg is very painful. It only swells slightly more than the other leg. I assume it's due to blood flood and lack of vein, but should I be worried? Is this normal?
I know that veins can reroute, and I am wondering if they can route to the pelvic and/or rectum area. I had endovenous laser ablation performed on both legs, as well as foam sclerotherapy, within the last year. After the procedures I developed hemorrhoids. Is there a link between the two? Can the procedures cause hemorrhoids?
I had EVLA to treat two veins in my left leg. The surgery went fine, then afterwards due to the epinephrine given I felt like I was freaking out. That week my blood pressure ranged from 154/95 to 134/93. Now my pressure on top is fine but my bottom number still stays in the mid to high 80s. Why is this happening? This is not normal BP for me; my range is usually 117/78 to 120/82. I take my BP every so many days to check.
I have venus insufficiency, as noted on ultrasound, in both the deep system (right leg) and superficial system (both legs). How will the VNUS closure procedure help if there are no healthy veins for blood to be rerouted to?
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?
