Is it safe and effective to get sclerotherapy treatment while breastfeeding?
Sclerotherapy - 1 month ago
I have an 11 month old who is breastfeeding. Is it safe for him if I get sclerotherapy now, or will the drugs get into my breastmilk for extended periods? Also, will it be effective, or will the hormones from breastfeeding decrease effectiveness of the treatment?

I have a sudden pain in my left thigh at the back where the injected site is. There is no bruising, but there's a dull ache. Is that normal?
Sclerotherapy - 2 months ago
I had sclerotherapy treatment on both thighs over five weeks ago. The results have been really good, the majority of the red veins have disappeared. I wore compressing stockings for three weeks during the days. This week I had sudden pain from my left thigh at the back where the injected site is. There is no bruising or swelling but there is a very dull ache and it's a bit sensitive to touch. Is it normal?

Is it normal to have calf pain four months after sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy - 2 months ago
About four moths ago, I got a reticular vein treated on my leg. I had no pain after the treatment until about a month ago when I started to develop minor calf pain and an aching sensation that comes and goes throughout the day. I went to the doctor's office and the nurse told me I should not worry, but never did an ultrasound. My leg is not red or swollen, just the aching and pain. Should I be concerned or get an ultrasound?

Can you have sclerotherapy for veins on your buttocks?
Sclerotherapy - 4 months ago
I have gray areas on one side of my buttocks and lower back that look like varicose veins. I have lots of varicose veins in my legs that have grown in size over the last decade. I've had a chronically sore back in this area for the last 2 years also. I've had tests on my back and everything looks normal are far as bones go. My theory is that perhaps these varicose veins are causing a lack of blood flow to my bum and lower back. Is this possible and if so, can they be treated with sclerotherapy?
