I was suffering from varicose veins and I had ugly ropey veins on my leg above and under my knee. They weren't painful. I had a GSV stripping 10 days ago, and after removing the bandages I was shocked to see that the ropey veins are still visible. I had two cuts--one at the groin and another one down at my ankle. Is this normal?
No other symptoms out of the ordinary other than swelling. My legs get heavy and painful the more I stand. Swelling goes down with elevation and blood work is normal. Could this be due to the vein ablation?
I had a surgery in 2013 after the rupture of a vein. I was living in Dubai at the time and surgery in the UAE sucks since they don't provide appropriate pain relief. My leg has hard spots that are tender to the touch. Also, my ankle hurts and swells up often. Is it normal so long after surgery?
I have parametrial varicosities, no refluxing in ovarian veins (pelvic MRV), & unusual absence of mid-LSV in both legs (mid section disappears to thin holes; too small for catheter). Vein stripping is only option (from Duplex U/S). Thrombophlebitis Oct 2015 (R knee) caused worsening leg pain. I want to avoid pelvic vein embolism (coils) due to multiple allergies & complications with discectomy & fusion in 2008 (Titanium plate, 6 screws).
I'm 2 weeks and 1 day put from varicose vein surgery for both legs. My legs are nearly in perfect condition, but there is one leg I'm worried about. I see a lump near the groin where there were lots of varicose veins. I've tried to ask staff at the hospital where my procedure was performed. They say I need to wait 6 weeks until my appointment. I can't wait that long because I'm really worried. What should I do?
I had major vein stripping on my right leg 45 years ago. I was told not to further treatment on this leg. I have been wearing compression stockings as long as I can remember. I also have Scleroderma w/o blood markers and severe Raynaud w/ ulceration of the fingers. I have had a blood clot on my leg but not in the main vein. I do have Hosh Thyroid, Barrett's, a lung problem, etc.
I have painful bulging veins in both legs. What might my options be now, if any?
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?
