Sclerotherapy Questions

How unusual is it to get thrombophlebitis in the greater saphenous vein 1-2 weeks after sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy - 1 week ago1 answer
I had numerous sclerotherapy injections in my upper and lower leg (especially large vein on my posterior thigh). About a week later, I developed thrombophlebitis in my greater saphenous vein in my thigh, which after ultrasounding indicated that the vein was inflamed and would close like the others. Fast forward another week and I'm having the same symptoms distally in my medial calf. Should I be concerned? Aren't these veins important? These veins we're not directly injected.

What could be causes of heal and arch pain after foam sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy - 1 month ago2 answers
Two weeks ago I had foam sclerotherapy on my lower greater saphenous vein. After the procedure I had increased swelling and pain in my foot and ankle. I went to the ER to determine if I had a DVT. The scan was negative. The swelling has gone down quite a bit but I still have a lot of pain in the arch and heal of my foot. It hurts to the point where it can be difficult to walk on it. Just a note, I have no prior foot or heal issues.

Ankle swelling 6 months after sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy - 2 months ago1 answer
I had sclerotherapy on my greater saphenous vein 6 months ago. The leg is still more swollen than my healthy leg and recently my lower calf/ankle area has gotten more swollen, similar to the symptoms of venous reflux. It only feels better when I elevate my leg. The doctor said the vein is completely occluded and everything went well, so why is my ankle still swollen and warm? I am upset I still need to elevate my legs after everything I went through.

Why does it require so many sessions to eliminate the appearance of my spider veins, and is it worth continuing?
Sclerotherapy - 2 months ago1 answer
I’ve had 7 sessions of sclerotherapy to eliminate the appearance of spider veins that I’ve had for about 25 years (since I was a teenager, and I’ve never been pregnant). Each session targeted different areas, with repeats in all sections. However, a significant amount of the veins are still visible. I had 2 ultrasounds when I was first pursuing doctors, so I know there's no underlying medical issue. Progress is so slow, and barely detectable. Is it worth continuing treatments? What can be done?

Is it normal to have a blister (sore) at an injection site for sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy - 3 months ago4 answers
I have a blister (sore) on my ankle after sclerotherapy treatment that won't heal—it's been almost 2 months. I've seen a dermatologist because I initially didn't associate it with the treatment. She said if I did have an injection in that area that it could happen. Don't know why it won't heal up and go away...the doctor who did the procedure has not called back yet.

I have swollen eyelids/baggy eyes from sclerotherapy. Will this go away?
Sclerotherapy - 4 months ago1 answer
I had sclerotherapy done four days ago for the last two days I've had a puffy/swollen area under my left eye. I also happen to have a stye in that eye (that developed after the sclerotherapy) but do not believe it is related to the stye, as I've never had a stye travel down my face.

I am in a lot of pain after multiple sclerotherapy sessions. How long will this last?
Sclerotherapy - 6 months ago2 answers
I am 71 years old. I had three sessions of sclerotherapy, and one final session to remove six blood spots. This has taken five months and I am still in a lot of pain. I have done cold compresses, worn support stockings during the day, and walk daily for exercise. It's hard to relax and hard to sleep. The pain keeps me up and walking. I can't sit. What should I do to relieve the pain?

The veins are hard, but not discolored. I have to wear a different pair of sneakers when running because the vein by my ankle swells. Is this common? Will it go away with time? Thank you
