I had VNUS closure a week ago and now I have a lump-like bruise that hurts a little when I touch it. Why?
VNUS - 4 weeks ago
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 have more visible veins since my VNUS closure procedure, why is this?
VNUS - 4 months ago
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.
