I have hard lumps and pain in my treated leg. Is this normal? What do I do?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 3 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 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?

Is it typical for a doctor to recommend thermal ablation after sclerotherapy?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 3 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 - 6 months 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 - 10 months 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?

Is it okay for a person with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS) to have sclerotherapy for spider veins?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 1 year ago6 answers
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 since having foam sclerotherapy, is this normal?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 1 year ago2 answers
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.
