Foam Sclerotherapy Questions

My leg and foot are swollen after foam sclerotherapy. Could this be lymphedema?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 1 month ago3 answers
A month and a half ago I had a foam sclerotherapy in my lower right leg. Immediately my lower leg and foot swelled up from the injection site down and hasn't subsided since. Could this be lymphedema? I had my saphenous veins ablated in both thighs and lower left leg, and those are still sore, too.

Leg and foot swelling after foam injection in shin bone on right leg. Will it subside?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 1 month ago3 answers
I have swelling from the calf down to the foot after sclerotherapy foam injection in right lower leg. It's been a month and a half. I'm worried that the foam leaked out and damaged my lymph ducts, causing lymphedema. The swelling started immediately after the injection and hasn't subsided. Will it subside -- if likely, how long? Thanks for your time. Treatment timeline: saphenous veins in thigh ablated early August. Veins in lower left leg ablated shortly after, then foam right leg.

Are heart palpitations normal after sclerotherapy? Are the two even related?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 3 months ago2 answers
A week ago I underwent sclerotherapy. I had no symptoms of concern when I went for follow up. However, I suffer from PVC and heart palpitations already, and for the last 3 days that's been acting up. My PVC can be brought on by stress. I've also had a dry cough for the same period but I'm pretty certain that's sinusitis. I'm just concerned because I go in for my second leg tomorrow. Could the sclerotherapy cause this?

I have hard lumps and pain in my treated leg. Is this normal? What do I do?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 9 months ago4 answers
I had foam scleotherapy 16 days ago on a very superficial varicose vein behind my left knee. The surgeon injected the vein with foam; however, at that moment, I felt pain along the vein in my inner thigh. I now still have bruising and there are palpable tender lumps along the length of the vein on my inner thigh. There is also pain on my left in that upper calf...no palpable lump though. What is this new calf pain?

I now still have bruising and there are palpable tender lumps along the length of the vein on my inner thigh for about 4-5 inches. Is this normal? What do I do?

Is it typical for a doctor to recommend thermal ablation after sclerotherapy?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 10 months ago6 answers
Twenty days ago I had sclerotherapy on my great saphenous vein. Unfortunately, the vein did not close, although I had one more sclerotherapy injection in the following days. Now, my doctor says that it is necessary to close the vein with thermo ablation. What's your position about that? Is this typical? It is possible to perform a thermo ablation after a sclerotherapy injection? Thanks a lot.

Foam sclerotherapy vs. other forms of sclerotherapy and hemosiderin staining
Foam Sclerotherapy - 1 year ago3 answers
Whenever I get foam sclerotherapy it results in staining that takes 1-1.5 years to fade. I recently had sclerotherapy treatment done that wasn't foam on the right side of my leg (plan is to do the left next week) to treat blue reticular veins - believed they were "feeding" my spider veins. My spider veins are light due to past laser treatments on them. I was told foam sclerotherapy is more likely to cause staining. From your experience, is this true? Also, what can I do to prevent the staining?

My veins look and feel worse after I had foam Sclerotherapy. I had the procedure 2 months ago and they feel hard, are throbbing and very pigmented.
Foam Sclerotherapy - 1 year ago7 answers
20 years ago I had liquid Sclerotherapy and was bandaged for one month. The veins weregone when removed.Two months after my foam sclerotherapy my veins are still there. I know brown pigmentation takes a while to fade. The only difference is that this time I was only given compression stockings, not tight, to wear for 1 week. I've been wearing my own (stronger) stocking for 7 weeks, but no improvement. I'm very disappointed. Will the veins ever improve?
