Sclerotherapy Questions

Is it normal to develop clotted, lumpy veins after sclerotherapy on the hands? Can the clots be removed or dispersed? How long before they disappear?
Sclerotherapy - 6 days ago4 answers
I recently had hand sclerotherapy. 4 weeks post-treatment, the treated veins are clotted and lumpy. My doctor drained some veins but said the solid clots will be reabsorbed. A worry is these veins are causing new yellow and green discoloration on the hands and they will continue to do that for as long as they are still there. So, solid clots can't be removed or dispersed in some way? How long can it take for solid clots to disappear? Can they not be evacuated?

Immediatley after sclerotherapy I noticed tightness and pain on the top of my foot. It has been 2 days and it is still there. Should I be concerned?
Sclerotherapy - 1 month ago2 answers
I had sclerotherapy 2 days ago and immediately following the session I noticed a tightness and discomfort on the top of my foot. I had varicose veins treated and according to the doctor they were long, big veins in which she used a UV red light to see. She told me I would only need 1 treatment. I have also noticed that there are either more veins or the veins that were treated are darker. It has only been 2 days but I'm slightly concerned. Thoughts?

I had no pain after my first set of sclerotherapy injections. One week later I have pain that is not alleviated by Motrin and compression. What now?
Sclerotherapy - 5 months ago8 answers
I did have a thorough ultrasound. I did not take any OTC pain med until today. I have been walking. My entire leg hurts from foot all the way up the back to the top of the thigh. It's particularly uncomfortable when I bend my knee. I've tried to keep it propped all day when I've had to sit.

How many sclerotherapy sessions are needed after stripping and for how long for chronic condition? Is there a limit in treating veins with injections?
Sclerotherapy - 6 months ago3 answers
I had two big veins removed with stripping nearly a year ago. I'm very happy with the results as all went great. Some residual veins appeared six months later, however. They are small, some I hardly notice. Dr opted for sclerotherapy every 7-8 weeks or so. I've already had three sessions so far and Dr suggested at least two more. I've been happy with the results from the beginning so I don't doubt his decision but I just wonder how many sessions can be done. Is there a limit?

I have pea-sized lumps behind one knee following sclerotherapy 4 weeks ago. Why is that?
Sclerotherapy - 6 months ago1 answer
These lumps are near the area I had the injections, but I have also had an unknown virus with swollen lymph nodes in my neck recently. I'm not sure if the lumps are due to the procedure or my recent health condition. I am worried as I may be developing more swollen nodes. Is it possible to have small lumps that are not discolored after sclerotherapy? I have my follow up in about 3 weeks. Thank you!
