After sclerotherapy, how many days does it take before you can go to 15-20mmhg hose?
Sclerotherapy - 4 months ago
I had sclerotherapy 5 days ago and have been wearing 20-30mmhg compression hose for the full 5 days, except at night. Would I run into complications, or would the effects of the procedure, be compromised if I dropped down to 15-20mmhg hose at this point?

What is the difference between reticular veins and varicose veins?
Sclerotherapy - 4 months ago
I have greenish veins near the surface of my inner thigh. I can feel them and they bulge a bit at times. Are they reticular or varicose veins? According to tests, the insufficiency of my gsv is greater than 2 per sec. at the junction. I was told that I'm not ready for ablation yet. How do I know when I'll be ready for treatment? Could I have sclerotherapy in the meantime? If so, would it rid these ugly veins?

My legs burn, ache and are swollen after sclerotherapy, why is this?
Sclerotherapy - 6 months ago
I had 3 mini-sclerotherapy treatments 4 weeks apart. Since my last session 8 weeks ago, my legs have been burning and aching. They've also become swollen. Just as bad, the spider veins didn't even disappear. They have multiplied and are bigger, more purple more visible. It feels like pins and needles all over my legs, not just he injection spots. I had no pain in my legs before. Duplex scan is normal. Doctor used VeinLite. Why is this happening?

I'm a 38-year-old smoker who has thrombophelbitis and a mirena IUD. Am I at greater risk for DVT after sclerotherapy or varicose vein surgery?
Sclerotherapy - 6 months ago
I have thrombophelbitis in my left thigh at the moment. It is very painful; I've had unsightly veins in this area for years. I'm just within my BMI, but apprehensive of surgery due to smoking 15 -20 cigarettes per day. Also, I have had the mirena IUD for four years. Does this put me at greater risk for DVT? Can I fly safely?
