Had evlt 2 wks ago. I started my normal workout routine 7 dys ago. Id been feeling great with Arnica Cream, then 2 days ago while exercising I got a bad pulling pain & big knot.My doc says go to primary doc? Why, when it's right on the vein? Im scared
I had EVLT done on my rt leg three weeks ago. I still have pain and walk with a limp. It hurts to straighten my knee fully. It's as if the back of my knee is "tight". I got a large blister on my thigh and am completely numb in my groin and rt hip area
I all of a sudden had blue veins on my waist, chest, inner upper arms, hands, neck and face, as well as legs, without pregnancy. They seem to be reticular veins and the ones on my arm burn. Does this mean I have a valve problem in my deep veins?
I had endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) with phlebectomy on the left leg 3 days ago. I now have numbness around my left ankle, on the left side of my foot, and running up the right side of my shin from the ankle to a few inches below the knee. Will this numbness likely resolve?
I'm athletic, in good shape, and have always had excellent flexibility. I am concerned because 4 weeks after endovenous laser treatment my knees are better but not "normal." I cannot bend them all the way (calf to thigh) without tightness/discomfort. My Dr. hasn't been helpful. When will the tightness/discomfort resolve?
I had EVLT bilateral, with the last leg being done 3 weeks ago. I am having pitting edema and want to know if this can be a side effect of the EVLT? I have continued to wear my compression hose to try and prevent severe swelling.
I had EVLT on my right leg 7 weeks ago and have been feeling normal for over 2 weeks now and then suddenly I have pain again and there is a hard/tender area where the vein was. It hurts to touch. Could this be from exercising (no heavy weights), or is this just normal?
I had EVLT and it resolved most of my pain. Four weeks after I had foam sclerotherapy, my pain returned. Actually, it has worsened. One month post, I wear 30-40 mmHgstockings daily, but still I hurt SO much. I see my dr in a month-any thoughts about what might be wrong?
I had EVLT on my right leg in July 2013. The doctor noted my GSV "stump" was a little long at my postoperative ultrasound. It healed well, but now I'm having pain at the stump, or so I believe. Could I be developing a blood clot? Is my vein reopening or collapsing?
I had EVLT in January 2012 and I have seen a significant increase in the appearance of blue-green veins. They are much worse than prior to EVLT, but my doctor said this is unrelated. I also feel pain and a tugging sensation during exercise, which he says is normal and may last for 12 months. Is this true?
I had varicose veins in both legs, but only pain in the right. Three weeks ago I had EVLT and a phlebectomy on the right leg. However, two weeks after the procedure I had intense pain in the leg that was treated. The discomfort has since faded, but now I have intense, "NEW" pain on the LEFT. Any idea why?
I went to have my 6 month ultrasound after having both legs treated with endovenous laser ablation. According to my doctor, there is still trapped blood below my right knee. He assumes it will find a way out eventually. Is this true? Also, my right leg is numb. He says that this may be permanent. Will the feeling ever come back? Is there anything I can do to speed up the process? I completely regret doing this. :(
I am a 25-year-old male who has been diagnosed with varicose veins in my both legs. I went to two reputed radiologists in my town and as per their reports, all my junctions are competent except one incompetent branch of great saphenous vein. My vascular surgeon, on the other hand, says my saphenofemoral junction is incompetent. Who should I believe?
I had 4 EVLTs performed. It has been 1 year since my last procedure, and my veins still bulge out slightly (giving the appearnce of cellulite in front of thigh) after running or standing on my feet. What gives? Has the treatment been inneffective?
I had endovenous laser treatment about 3 weeks ago. When I stand after sitting for 15+ minutes it feels like the vein in my leg (below my knee) is being stretched. Also, my leg is numb around the site the laser traveled. Is this normal and how long will this last?
My vein doctor said radiofrequency ablation would be better than laser (EVLT) because I have such large veins. I read a lot about radiofrequency ablation and it seems a good option, but is the "big veins" argument valid?
Could this be the nerves? I'm a 33-year-old and an athlete in good physical condition. I have been on Percocet since the procedure and want to stop, but the pain is severe in the upper thigh. Ultrasound was normal. What could this be?
