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?
I have the OK from my doctor to do some short easy runs for the next two weeks. I usually do so before I run to help keep my muscles loose and warmed up. With the procedure, I wasn't sure if the pressure on my leg would be harmful or not (I would not directly roll the spots that were treated, just other spots on my leg). Is this possible?
Still in slight pain, tender to the touch, tight and it burns, sometimes stabbing on my inner thighs down past my knees. My legs still swell very bad in the middle of my work day. They look lumpier and more broken blood vessels, and feel heavier than they did before. I so regret doing this. What should I do?
I have pain and tenderness in the lower calf area that is concentrated near the ankle after an EVLT done 3 weeks ago. This symptom has been persistent for 1 week now. The doctor advised me to elevate my leg as much as possible, along with walking and wearing compression stockings. I want to travel soon and need a solution to this. I have 2 concerns: what could be the cause of this, and is there any medication to alleviate pain and swelling? I have been taking Aleve.
It's been 6 wks and 3 ultrasounds later the dr says my veins are closed mid-thigh to groin but have clotting from knee to mid-thigh. He says he's not worried and for me to continue with compression stockings and Motrin. He won't see me again for 6 months, but I feel I need an ultrasound before then. I'm still in slight pain. The Motrin is bothering my stomach and the blood clot thing is worrying me. I don't know what to do. Should I stick with this dr or get a second opinion? Please help
