I had VNUS closure and sclerotherapy on both legs 8 weeks ago. Although the treated veins are getting smaller, they still appear/feel rope-like. How long should I wait before I return to my doctor? Is what I'm experiencing normal?
I'm 25 with well muscular build. I had a VNUS closure procedure of GSV of both the legs a year ago followed by sclerotherapy session after a month. I am into weight training lifestyle so I started weight lifting 5 month after my procedure. I can see some tiny bulging of veins around calf, hamstring and on feet. Will these veins get worse and is it due to my hormone levels? These are really frustrating I feel helpless. Should I stop weight lifting?
I used to wear compression stocking until 4 months after the procedure. I then started weight lifting at the gym to improve my muscle strength in my legs. Now the calf and thigh muscles are in good shape but I am seeing some spider veins on my feet. They are not painful but sometimes feel a bit swollen. I have started some breathing exercises and I elevate my legs twice a day for 10 min before and after the gym. Will the condition of spider veins get worse as time passes due to my exercising?
I had a varicose vein in my lower part of my leg. After VNUS procedure approx. 10 years ago, I have developed huge bulging vein from my groin to the knee. I also have pain and bulging vein in my groin. What should I do? What would be the best procedure to get rid of my veins?
Veins that I never noticed before have become more noticeable and larger on the treated leg. It seems as if it has caused the other veins to enlarge because of the rerouting of the bloodflow. Is this just a hypersensitivity on my part or a real possibility ?
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?
I had the VNUS closure procedure 2 weeks ago on left leg for reflux 4.4 sec. Now, I'm being advised to have the right leg treated even though the reflux is only 0.6 sec. The 0.6 sec reflux in right leg is above the knee and is only a 12cm segment. I have minimal symptoms, which consist of burning sensation on the medial and posterior aspect of my knee and up into posterior thigh a few inches. Should I proceed now with the procedure or wait?
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 have venous reflux disease. When my son was born 18 years ago, I had a DVT in my left leg and was diagnosed with Factor V Leiden. I still take warfarin to prevent blood clots. I had the VNUS procedure on my left leg with no complications, but the doctor was unable to perform the VNUS procedure on my right leg because my veins are so twisted that the smallest catheter could not be inserted in my veins. What are my options now?
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?
