After having radiofrequency occlusion on one leg, how long before the same procedure can be performed on the opposite leg?
Radiofrequency Occlusion - 3 months ago
I have minor reflux on both calves (small saphenous vein) and will be scheduled for VNUS radiofrequency occlusion. My doctor said we could do one leg first and another leg the next day. Is it too soon? I'm worried about the chance of blood clot (DVT). After having the procedure performed on one leg, how soon can the same procedure can be done on the opposite leg?

According to my doctor, the radiofrequency ablation performed on my legs was not successful because my veins kept moving. Is this normal?
Radiofrequency Occlusion - 1 year ago
I had radiofrequency ablation performed on both of my legs due to superficial venous reflux and varicose veins. The procedure was not successful on either. According to my doctor, it was because my veins kept moving. I felt a lot of poking and pain during the ablation. He was not even able to give me anesthetic. We had to stop the procedure because my veins would spasm. Is this normal?
