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!
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 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.
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'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?
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?
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?
I have an 11 month old who is breastfeeding. Is it safe for him if I get sclerotherapy now, or will the drugs get into my breastmilk for extended periods? Also, will it be effective, or will the hormones from breastfeeding decrease effectiveness of the treatment?
I had sclerotherapy treatment on both thighs over five weeks ago. The results have been really good, the majority of the red veins have disappeared. I wore compressing stockings for three weeks during the days.
This week I had sudden pain from my left thigh at the back where the injected site is. There is no bruising or swelling but there is a very dull ache and it's a bit sensitive to touch. Is it normal?
I am at week 10 dealing with this ulceration. First it was treated with antibiotics and Bactrian now I am using a burn cream. It is on the lower shin. Is it normal for healing to take this long? Is there a more effective medicine or procedure to promote healing?
