Varicose Vein Surgery Questions

I consulted with a vein surgeon about my aching legs. He said my back is causing my leg to ache, not my veins. Could this be true?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 2 weeks ago
I had my veins treated 11 years ago and wear compression stockings to relieve my aching legs. I feel there is nothing wrong with my back and I’m not sure what to do next.

Are there any next steps for a failed ablation surgery for a varicose vein problem?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 2 months ago
About four years ago, I had varicose vein ablation surgery on both legs. One leg came out well; the other did not because of the location of the bad valve. I wear compression socks but the bad leg aches constantly (and I am good at ignoring pain). I was told closing the tributary veins was not a great solution. I am 44, in good physical shape, and do wear compression socks. Are there other things I can do to help? Are there any next steps that could have a better outcome?

I have a superficial blood clot in my leg vein and I'm 8 1/2 months pregnant. Is it safe to have laser treatment?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 2 months ago
I have seen a vein specialist and they told me that I have abnormal veins in my right leg and a blood clot in a superficial vein. I am 8 1/2 months pregnant and they told me that I need to get the laser treatment done before my due date. They don't want to wait 'til after the baby is born because they are worried about the blood clot traveling during labor and getting worse. Is it safe to have a laser treatment during my pregnancy?

I'm considering vein treatment, but how do I know the protruding veins on my shins (like on my feet and hands) are varicose?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 3 months ago
I've had a consultation with a board-certified doctor, but still have concerns. Clotting and stroke run on my mom's side of the family. She died of a pulmonary embolism at 42 but I don't know where the clot was. Are laser or injection treatments less prone to clotting than removal/stripping?

Varicose Vein Surgery - 7 months ago
I have stiffness in my knees, as well as swelling and pain on the outside of my knees. It is really hindering my activities. I cannot bend my knees without screaming pain.

Is it normal to have small pea-like lumps in the area where my doctor removed varicose veins? Also, is it normal to have sharp pain?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 8 months ago
Radiofrequency ablation was performed on my superficial vein, located in my thigh near the groin. A few varicose veins were removed around my calf only two weeks prior. I want to know if it's normal to have small pea-like lumps where the doctor took out my varicose veins in my calf? I've also had sharp pain in my calf. Is this normal? The pain I'm experiencing is the same pain I had when I had the varicose veins before the surgery. The duration of the pain is short but intense.

My dad's leg and foot are swollen after vein surgery. He also has a large lumpy vein in his thigh. Should we be concerned? Is something wrong?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 8 months ago
My father had varicose veins removed & lasered from both legs. He has worn his compression stockings for about a week. He hasn't exercised since there is some stiffness and he is recovering. He went back to his retail job 2 days after the procedures. We've noticed that he has some swelling in his right leg and foot. It seems like fluid build up, because when I press on it, the dent doesn't go away. There is also a large lumpy vein in his inner thigh. Is there something wrong?
