Sclerotherapy Questions

I have varicose veins and am experiencing a lot of pain. Should I get sclerotherapy as soon as possible?
Sclerotherapy - 3 days ago
I have varicose veins all over both legs. More recently, I've been experiencing a lot of pain. I can't even touch them because it hurts. I wore compression stockings for a year and got no results. I have poor circulation. Should I get sclerotherapy done as soon as possible? If sclerotherapy is not the appropriate form of treatment, what is?

Sclerotherapy - 6 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 - 7 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?

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 - 8 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?
