Does a decrease in testosterone level in male’s leads to chronic venous insufficiency? Could it be because of weight lifting in gym?
VNUS - 1 month ago
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 had vnus closure procedure of GSV in both the legs proceeding to sclerotherapy after a month,now after a year i am seeing spider veins on my feet
VNUS - 1 month ago
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 just had Endovenous Ablation performed a week ago ( VNUS CLOSUREfast). Is it common to notice different veins becoming more noticeable than before?
VNUS - 2 months ago
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 ?

Can veins reopen after VNUS closure?
VNUS - 3 months ago
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

How long after VNUS treatment can I start riding my horse? Can that heavy contact with the saddle cause damage?
VNUS - 3 months ago
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?

How soon after VNUS closure can I have sex? Is it normal to have pain in the untreated leg? What's the risk of getting a blood clot after treatment?
VNUS - 3 months ago
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?

I'm experiencing a pulsing/throbbing sensation 4 days after VNUS closure. Is this normal?
VNUS - 3 months ago
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?

Is it safe to get pregnant about a year after VNUS closure procedure?
VNUS - 9 months ago
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 VNUS closure a week ago and now I have a lump-like bruise that hurts a little when I touch it. Why?
VNUS - 10 months 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?

Is it possible for my treated GSV to reopen due to lack of complete compression?
VNUS - 10 months ago
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?

Is a large, numb, swollen palm-sized lump on the inner thigh normal 4.5 weeks post VNUS?
VNUS - 11 months ago
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?

I have more visible veins since my VNUS closure procedure, why is this?
VNUS - 1 year 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.
