Sclerotherapy Questions

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 - 2 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 - 2 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 - 3 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!

Every time I wear my compression stockings, it seems to cause low back and pelvic pain. What would be the reason for this?

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 - 4 months 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 - 4 months 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.

What should I expect during and after sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy - 6 months ago2 answers
I am having a sclerotherapy treatment after ligation/stripping, which I had done earlier this year. My dr. recommended it for some residual veins, except for one vein that I can see and which is slightly varicosed. I don't see the issue with other veins (except that its a chronic condition). Anyway, what to expect? Pain during/after the treatment? My dr. said I can go to work after the treatment, is that wise? Any swelling? How long to wear compression stockings? Thanks.

I had sclerotherapy 6 months ago and still have some pea-sized clots. Will these go away or should I have them treated somehow?
Sclerotherapy - 6 months ago3 answers
I had sclerotherapy in May. Since the procedure, I've developed pea-sized clots. I also still have small brown spots at the injection sites. Will these go away or should I have them treated somehow? They are sore to touch.

I have many spider veins and bigger veins. Is sclerotherapy appropriate?
Sclerotherapy - 7 months ago7 answers
I'm a 25-year- old male and I have many veins on my calf, ankle and tibia. After X-rays, the doctor told me that my deep veins are healthy enough so I don't need EVLT. However, he recommended several sclerotherapy sessions. What should I do?

Are there risks associated with performing sclerotherapy on penile veins?
Sclerotherapy - 7 months ago1 answer
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 - 7 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?

Sclerotherapy - 7 months ago5 answers
I have a prominent vein in front of my upper thigh that runs up to my stomach. It does not appear varicose to me, but it's very visible. Is it possible to get this treated even if the visibility is only due to my skin type?
