Hello, I am from Greece. My son is 31 years old and has had varicose veins on one leg for nine years. It was at an advanced stage and he had surgery in a university hospital in the city of Thessaloniki. One year later there were new varices and the doctor said they still have to perform more surgery. Is this very risky because the wounds from the original surgery are still fresh.I am concerned about him losing his leg.
I had greater saphenous vein stripping done 12 years ago. I wear 30-40 mmHg compression knee high stockings. Lately I have had numerous abdominal surgeries and have not had injections or worn the hose regularly. I have discoloration and skin changes. My ultrasounds have shown venous insufficiency but no clots. Although I have resumed wearing the hose, stasis dermatitis is not improved. What do you recommend? I am 64.
I had surgery to treat varicose veins in both my legs in February 2016 (vein removal/blood draining) surgeon wasn't very clear on how long the compression stockings need to be worn post-surgery. I'm a fly-in-fly-out worker and spend 4hrs a fortnight flying to/from work and will be flying to Europe (from Australia) in July. Should I continue wearing the stockings while flying for basically the rest of my life, or just for long flights?
I had a varicose vein removed in September 2016, the vein was most visible above my calf and below the knee. I had incision sites in my groin, and small incisions around the vein. There is now a visible indentation the length of my inner thigh. I have had a massive increase in spider veins post op, and my knee looks bruised from them. I have difficulty bending my knee due to pain. I have pain and numbness in my ankle, and it is visibly larger than the other one. My daily movement is restricted.
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?
