I am 71 years old. I had three sessions of sclerotherapy, and one final session to remove six blood spots. This has taken five months and I am still in a lot of pain.
I have done cold compresses, worn support stockings during the day, and walk daily for exercise.
It's hard to relax and hard to sleep. The pain keeps me up and walking. I can't sit. What should I do to relieve the pain?
The trapped blood was taken out in two areas, and the painful section is left of my knee and slightly lower. It even woke me up in the night it feels so sensitive/angry. It's very tender to the touch in one specific spot. Is this normal? I have to get on a plane in two hours and I'm concerned this isn't typical.
I recently had hand sclerotherapy. 4 weeks post-treatment, the treated veins are clotted and lumpy. My doctor drained some veins but said the solid clots will be reabsorbed. A worry is these veins are causing new yellow and green discoloration on the hands and they will continue to do that for as long as they are still there. So, solid clots can't be removed or dispersed in some way? How long can it take for solid clots to disappear? Can they not be evacuated?
I had sclerotherapy 2 days ago and immediately following the session I noticed a tightness and discomfort on the top of my foot. I had varicose veins treated and according to the doctor they were long, big veins in which she used a UV red light to see. She told me I would only need 1 treatment. I have also noticed that there are either more veins or the veins that were treated are darker. It has only been 2 days but I'm slightly concerned. Thoughts?
I had a previous diagnosis of DVT and PE, but am fully recovered and no longer taking warfarin or other medication. I have some unsightly spider veins and wanted to know if sclerotherapy is contraindicated with my previous diagnoses.
I have minor varicose veins. After having sclerotherapy yesterday, my leg began to swell. Is this common? Serious? Could the bandage/dressing that was placed around my leg be the cause? What can be done to alleviate the inflammation?
