What causes weakened blood vessel walls and incompetent valves within the vein? Are the veins in my heart weak? Should I be worried about this? I have had my large veins and small veins injected. The large ones have not been problematic, it's the small veins that all came back.
How painful is an embolization treatment in the labia to treat a venous malformation? Is it true that the venous malformation will return after an embolization? If so, how soon? Is there a significant amount of pain after the embolization? What can relieve this pain?
It has been three weeks since my UGS procedure and there is a small purple lump about 20mm in diameter where my vein was treated. It is sore to touch. My follow-up appointment is in three weeks. What is the purple lump? Can it wait until then to be seen or is there something I can do/should do?
