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 a previous diagnosis of DVT and PE, but am fully recovered and no longer taking warfarin or other medication. I have some unsightly spider veins and wanted to know if sclerotherapy is contraindicated with my previous diagnoses.
I have minor varicose veins. After having sclerotherapy yesterday, my leg began to swell. Is this common? Serious? Could the bandage/dressing that was placed around my leg be the cause? What can be done to alleviate the inflammation?
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.
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?
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!
I am 29 and had sclerotherapy a couple weeks ago on both legs. I have noticed whenever I wear my compression stockings, my lower back and pelvic area hurts SO badly. Is there a reason for this? I'm starting to get concerned. Thank you!
A web of blue veins on my lower right leg was treated with 5% solution. I now have a huge burn spot (blackish color now) and redness around the edges. Also, my foot continues to stay swollen. Occassionally I feel sharp pains in the area but not constant. I was told it will get better with time, that some of the solution got under the skin (not in the vein). This looks very bad. Just wondering why my foot is swelling also.
I had a small bulging vein treated six weeks ago with sclerotherapy and it still shows. I had bigger veins treated last year and was happy with the results. My legs looked great and the scans were great too. This vein is supposedly a residual vein. It's only a small one, but I wanted it gone. Should it not have decreased in size or disappeared by now? Will I need another round? I'm scheduled for an appointment in February.
