I just had vein closure on 2 perferrators. I went in for my two-day follow up and was told the veins have reopened. Why? Could there have been an error on the part of my treating physician. I just can't understand why, if the procedure was done correctly, the veins would reopen and so soon. I feel like there was an error
I had the VNUS procedure performed on my left leg 13 days ago, with a follow-up ultrasound 7 days post op. I was told it was ok for me to ride my horse after that week. I waited until day 11 before getting in the saddle & rode on day 12 as well. I ride competitively in dressage, which requires a lot of leg strength & contact. I have now had some sharp pains following my two rides and also have a good bit of discomfort behind my knee. Can I cause damage even though I was cleared by my Dr?
Hello! I just had the VNUS closure procedure 4 days ago. When is it OK to have sex again? Also, I noticed that I'm experiencing a bit of pain in the opposite leg that I didn't have surgery on. Is that normal? Completely unrelated or a problem? Also, I had an ultrasound Wednesday(2 days after) to make sure there were no blood clots. All looked great. Am I out of the woods now, or is there still chance I can develop a blood clot later on?
Ijust had VNUS closure surgery 4 days ago and the pain is minimal. But, I did notice today it feels like there is a throbbing or heartbeat, almost like a twitching or pumping in my upper leg. It doesn't hurt. Is this normal? What's causing the pulsing/throbbing? Also, am I able to tan (tanning bed or stand up) if I wear my support hose so my leg is not directly exposed to the light, and if I don't use tanning lotion on the leg?? When will the fat, worm-like veins go down or look better?
My vein doctor keeps pushing me to perform the VNUS closure procedure on 3 of my veins for vein reflux/chronic venous insufficiency. I have a bulging vein behind my knee which occasionally clots. The other leg has a painful vein on the back of my thigh. I currently wear prescription 30-40 compression thigh highs. The third vein he wants to close doesn't bother me. I'd wait until I'm done having kids. However, I'm unsure when that will be because we haven't decided how many children we want yet.
I had my vein treatment a week ago. I believe they performed EVLT (they used something hot to shrivel the veins) and microphlebectomy (they removed two little veins). It's been aching right below my knee. I looked this morning and there's a lump-like vein that wasn't there before. What's wrong? Should I be worried?
I had VNUS closure of the GSV in both legs 5 days ago and multiple micro-avulsions below the knees. The stockings I was given kept coming down to my knee. I also took them off at night, as it was so uncomfortable. I did, however, elevate my bed at the foot end. Will the lack of continued compression at the thigh level for the past 5 days mean my GSV will reopen? Or, does the fact I have been wearing stockings below the knee most of time mean there's less chance of it reopening?
I had a VNUS closure on the great saphenous vein in my right leg about 4.5 weeks ago. I have an area on my inner thigh about the size of my palm that is sore, the skin is numb, and it is swollen but hard when pressed. I have only seen an ultrasound tech and a sclerotherapy nurse since the procedure. I'm guessing follow-up with the doctor is not happening. Is it normal to have this type of issue? Will it go away?
6 years post op VNUS and I'm still having pain in my right, lower quadrant just above my groin. No difference with position change including lying down either. Stabbing, sharp, constant pain, but never completely gone.
I am 23 years old. I had the VNUS closure on both legs 2 years ago. They fixed the problem veins but so many more have shown up since then. I'd say there are three times as more. Why is this happening? I thought the procedure was supposed to stop more from forming but it looks worse. Also, my legs hurt every day after only standing for a couple hours. My doc said this does not have to do with my veins.
I had a VNUS procedure yesterday. No pain and just mild discomfort afterwards. But, I had excruciating pain during the procedure. Had two Valium and two Vicodin prior to the procedure but was quite alert until about half an hour after it was all over. Anxiety?
I had VNUS surgery 8 days ago and really haven't had any problems until yesterday. I removed the butterfly closers and noticed the pathway of the vein, which had been red and rigid. Also, there is now an open blister with fluid running. Is this normal? What should I do?
I had both saphenous veins treated, but on one side the Dr. could not guide the catheter halfway between the knee and femoral vein junction. After several attempts, he just ablated the distal portion. There is now a new varicose vein above. What should be the next step?
