I've had problems with disposable plastic 3 and 5cc syringes with hard to push plungers, which results in jerking and the needle dislodging. What, in your experience, is the best syringe for visual cosmetic sclerotherapy? Thank you.
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?
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?
I had my first 'minor' scleropathy 7 weeks ago. It was very painful. A salt solution was used. A week after the procedure, I continue to have a dull intermittent ache behind my knees and down my shins. Legs were fine before treatment. Is this normal? Will this pain away? Approximately when?
I recently had a reflux procedure and sclerotherapy a month later. Four weeks after sclerotherapy, I'm noticing many new large blue veins all over my legs and no difference in the veins injected with saline. Why is this happening?
I had sclerotherapy one and a half weeks ago. I went in because there was trapped blood a few days ago. How long will it take for the red line to go away? It is still there. Can't ask my doctor because he left the practice. Don't know the replacement dr.
I'm big into weight lifting and find right now (pre-procedure) that upper body weight lifting aggravates my legs most, more than lower body lifting. Why is this? If I get sclerotherapy, will I be able to weight lift without problems?
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 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?
Had 1st sclero appt 6 days ago. When I removed compression after 72hrs, some veins had faded away nicely, but the ones near my knees look no different despite being injected. Is there hope for fading? I'm worried as they are not darker or inflamed. Thank
Two weeks after sclerotherapy, some of my treated veins are purple but the skin is not bruised. Others that were treated disappeared immediately. I followed all recommendations post-treatment. Will these veins fade and eventually disappear or do they need a second treatment?
I had sclerotherapy behind knees and above my ankles for cosmetic reasons. Wore compression hose for 7 days. Ten days post-treatment, I have continuous tingling/burning in both lower legs and feet. No obvious signs of clots or redness. I did not have any symptoms prior to treatment. Why is this happening?
I had spider vein treatment one week ago above the ankles and behind both knees. I now have general feeling of inflammation in my joints, including my upper body such as fingers and wrists. Wondering if treatment triggered something? No clot sx.
I had schlerotherapy on my left upper thigh yesterday and wore my knee-high hose to bed. I woke up in the middle of the night with terrible pain in my left heel. It was also red. Got back in bed and it went away. Could this be a blood clot?
I had ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy 3 weeks ago. One injection site was my inner calf, about 4-5 inches above ankle near the side of my tibia bone. This area still has pain and is very sensitive to touch, but there is no swelling or bruising. Any idea as to what I should do?
I've had one treatment of foam sclerotherapy 6 months ago, and now I have bruising on my skin (purple and brown). Will it go away, or will the bruising remain for life? Any exercises that will help? My leg looks worse than it did before the treatment.
