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 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 had severe bruising along this vein even though it was far from the site of injection. 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?
I have had varicose veins for 25 years. I did have injections 20 years ago and have had a varicose vein near the ankle bleed profusely. I've been found to have a faulty valve in my groin. I take blood pressure medication; I tend to bleed easily. Will sclerotherapy help prevent further bleeding?
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.
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?
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?
I have a very purple bruise with a ring around it. It's almost like it is sunken in and very tender. This is all happening on my inner ankle one week after my second sclerotherapy session. Is any of this normal?
I recently had foam sclerotherapy to treat a vein on my ankle. This followed EVLT treatment in the upper leg about a year ago. I have been advised to wear compression stockings for two weeks (day and night) and then two weeks just during the day. How long would I need to wait before it is ok to do exercise such as cycling?
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've had flu-like symptoms (including nausea and headaches) since having foam sclerotherapy. They've last five days. Two and half weeks ago I had a laser procedure to treat my veins. Are my symptoms attributable to the injection? I've been drinking lots of water to stay hydrated, although I was not advised to do so prior until I told doctor about what I was experiencing. Have MS. Interfuron shot as well.
I am 23 and had sclerotherapy performed behind my knee 12 weeks ago. The treated leg is still bigger than the other and the surface blue veins are more apparent. Why is this? I had an ultrasound done and they found no reflux.
