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
Also, extremely sore and painful. Nothing I can't bare but I am very concerned because it was not red and swollen yesterday nor did it hurt. Now, I'm experiencing all of these symptoms. I just hate to bother the doctor or nurse on a holiday weekend, especially if it's normal for this procedure.
I am still having burning pain in my thighs (tender to touch), and after being on my feet, I have a lot of swelling in my thighs and abdomen and the veins in my legs look engorged. Is this normal? I am so stressed and depressed over this surgery. I wished I wouldn't have done this. The first catheter they tried to put in my leg was bent. They resolved that but not until after they kept trying to shove that one in my leg. Could this be why I'm having all these issues and what should I do?
I had endovenous laser ablation 4 weeks ago. I still have tenderness in spots and pain in my groin area. Ultrasounds showed everything looked good, but I went to a concert and was standing at least 5 hrs. I wore my compression full hose (20-30 mmHg). When I got home and took them off, I had what looked like many tiny little broken vessels on both my thighs. Could it be from the pressure of the socks or the surgery? They seem to be fading but I am concerned.
After 30 years of it progressing, my doc is treating the left leg for varicose veins with EVLT, but says ultrasound detected same problem in right leg, though I have only a 1 inch bulge near the knee. Shouldn't I wait since this leg is progressing so slowly?
I had a vein ablation on my left leg 5 months ago and now I have pain in both legs, moreso in the right. I never had any trouble with the right leg before the procedure. Could an ablation of one leg cause pain and/or other problems in the other, untreated leg?
It's been 2 months since my GSV endovenous laser ablation procedure. I have the same pain that I had before the procedure, except it's in a new location. It started 2 weeks after. Could this be related to the SSV and not the GSV? I had the MA do an ultrasound and she says it is inflammation, and that it is due to the procedure; it will take a while to heal. How long will the healing process take?
I had EVLT on my GSV on Thurs., and then treatment was performed on my SSV the next day (Fri). Saturday morning I noticed the area the laser was inserted for the SSV treatment was very red and hard. Saturday night, I had sudden calf pain when I walked and the pain was so bad I felt like the bone in my shin and ankle was going to break if I continued to walk on it. I woke up Sunday morning, tried to walk again and I'm still having this severe pain. Is this normal?
