I am due to have sclerotherapy on my legs for my spider veins. I have POTS, but I don't take medication. I control it through lifestyle. I really want to deal with the spider veins on my legs and the vascular surgeon who is performing the injections said it is okay, but my mum wants me to get a second opinion.
I am 23 years old. I got a foam sclerotherapy injection right behind my knee to address a small spider vein, and now I have prominent blue veins down my entire leg. Will this go away or do I need further treatment? Also, why did this happen in the first place?
I had sclerotherapy on a medium enlarged blue vein a week ago. I removed the compression stockings to bathe and noticed bruising and red spider veins along the length of the veins treated. These spider veins are new. Is this normal? Is it possible for new spider veins to form after sclerotherapy? What should I do?
I have many bulging veins on both feet. Duplex ultrasound showed no reflux or insufficiency and that veins are not varicose. It was recommended that I do nothing since there is no need. If want to fix them for cosmetic reasons, can they be treated? If so, what's the best procedure?
Treated 2/28/14 minor saphenous vein. Aspirated twice. Tenderness and lumps ever since the initial procedure. Can't go without compression - hurts/aches/swells. Can sitting in a hot tub 2 months after procedure worsen symptoms or cause to reverse?
I have thin skin and prominent blue veins on my chest that make me feel self-conscious. Can foam sclerotherapy be used on the chest? If so, would the treatment rid the ugly blue veins? I want to feel more beautiful wearing the wedding dress of my dreams.
I had 2 veins in my calf injected 2 months ago. I was doing yoga and I think I pulled a muscle in my groin 2 weeks ago. The pain is still there and hurts down my leg. Just wondering if I should go to the doctor and what symptoms I should watch out for.
I have had foam sclerosants injected into three veins, two of which have gone hard. The last vein in the back of my thigh feels the same as before and it disappears when I lie down, as if blood is still traveling in it. Does that mean it was missed, or should I give it time?
I had EVLT performed on both legs. A week later, I had a foam sclerotherapy treatment. I developed thrombophlebitis following the procedures, and was given ibuprofen 600 for 2 weeks. I am finding that I still have no relief. There is pain behind my knee & inner thigh. What should I do?
I need a pelvic vein embolization using coils and foam sclerotherapy. I have been told that i need to wean my child because the blood/ vein walls behave differently while breastfeeding and that the foam sclerotherapy agent will transmit through the milk. Is this true?
I've had a very big vein stripped from my leg, and I'm now having foam injections once a week in both my legs. I play a high level of netball. Is it OK to play sports after having the injections? The vein still feels swollen in some areas and is sore to touch.
I had EVLT and foam sclerotherapy on my right leg. My Dermatologist suggested using laser to remove spider veins and other discoloration. He would only do this once the underlying problem (reflux) corrected itself. How long do I wait to have laser done?
I am thinking about having foam sclerotherapy and I was once told by a doctor that the blood will clot from the foam and then the foam shrinks the vein. Can you explain this process? How long does the blood clot stay there? Is it a concern, and is there a risk of developing other problems from this treatment, such as cancer?
