Sclerotherapy Questions

Every time I wear my compression stockings, it seems to cause low back and pelvic pain. What would be the reason for this?
Sclerotherapy - 3 weeks ago1 answer
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!

I have a big skin burn and my foot is swelling. I also occasionally have sharp pains in my lower leg/foot after sclerotherapy. What happened?
Sclerotherapy - 3 weeks ago2 answers
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 have a small vein that is still bulging six weeks after sclerotherapy. Is this normal?
Sclerotherapy - 1 month ago6 answers
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.

Are there risks associated with performing sclerotherapy on penile veins?

Sclerotherapy creates a scar on the vein's wall, so if the procedure is performed on a person's penile vein, will sex be painful? Will it affect my ability to get an erection?

Are there risks associated with having multiple sclerotherapy sessions, or is there a limited number of treatments a person should have on both legs?
Sclerotherapy - 4 months ago4 answers
My doctor recommended sclerotherapy after stripping to treat the remaining small(er) veins. He said I have venous insufficiency and that my varicosities will keep coming back. He said that I could have injections of sclerosant every few months if necessary to keep the varicosities under control and to prevent development of big bulging veins. Are there any risks associated with having multiple sclerotherapy sessions, or is there a limited number of treatments a person should have on both legs?
