Would you do radiofrequency closure in the lower leg and at the same time phlebectomy in the upper thigh? Is this standard?

My VNUS of the GSV was done 7 years ago by a vascular surgeon.
I have developed another visible vein in the upper thigh so my UCLA doctor performed a radiofrequency closure & phlebectomy. When they told me to walk for 20 min after the procedure, the blood from my thigh was gushing out of my leg like crazy. They took me back to surgery room. After that I walked 20 min & they sent me home. When home, the blood started gushing out of my thigh again & my family had to drive me back to UCLA. Why?
I need another professional opinion on a failed VNUS Closure procedure.

I had this procedure done over 18 months ago and I feel worse every day. I have tingling, numbness and trouble sleeping. The doctor recommended vein stripping. I understand this is painful and I don't trust him to do it. Another doctor wanted to send me to a neurologist. He did not believe the numbness started exactly after the procedure. I have difficulty with practicing yoga, and I'm miserable. What is the best option, that will not make this worse?
One month after radiofrequency occlusion, can I use a foam roller or lacrosse ball to massage my calves?

After my doctor cleared me, I resumed my exercise routine, which included running, cycling, strength training, etc. I used to deeply massage tight muscles after exercise using a foam roller or a lacrosse ball and would love to go back doing it again, but I am concerned that pressure from this massage may be too much given I just had the radiofrequency occlusion procedure one month ago. Can I use these items to massage my calves, or do I risk damaging the vein or re-opening it?

I had a catheter ablation to cure my PSVT on September 5th. They burned out extra fibers that I had. My groin has healed and is not bruised anymore, but I still get a pinching feeling from my lower stomach to the groin area every now and then when I stand up. Can the catheter bruise the vein? If so, is this normal? And if this is normal, how long does it last?

I had 2 radiofrequency ablations (great + small saphenous), 3 laser perforators, and 2 ambulatory phlebectomies (calf + thigh). After 2 weeks, I weirdly feel blood filling in side/back lower calf /ankle when I stand up. Is this normal? It does not hurt.
