I had an ambulatory phlebectomy performed on on leg in May 2011, and the other leg in October 2011. I have tiny scars from the incisions. Will self-tanning cream darken these scars, or will it help blend them in to the rest of my leg?
I had ambulatory phlebectomy with ligation 6 weeks ago and my leg still has shooting pains at times and I've got this painful bump on my inner thigh that won't go away. Sometimes the swelling (maybe a vein) spreads up the thigh (painful). Any ideas?
I am scheduled for ambulatory phlebectomy and laser ablation in a week. I also have several 5K runs soon and a two-week beach vacation in June. How soon before I would be able to exercise and run again after these procedures? How long to stay out of the sun?
I just had a phlebectomy done at 3pm, and have increasing pain and throbbing.Norco and Ibuprofen are not doing much! I have been elevating my leg and icing it to help with the pain, but it's not getting better. I walked around for short periods, with no relief. Is something wrong?
I have varicose veins and spider veins and one burst in back of knee. The bruise has doubled in size in a 24 hour time period. What should I do? Do I need a consult and, if so, which type of specialist?
I had my microphlebectomy procedure 12 days ago, and I've had minimal pain since the initial 48 hours post surgery. However, I stopped wearing my compression stocking 2 days ago and now have pain when I walk and darker bruising. Should I be overly concerned?
I'm 25 and have had varicose veins since I was 17. I have started to get more noticeable varicose veins with more discomfort. I used to be a runner, but now I fatigue quite easily. What options could I look at to help me minimize them or get rid of them?
A friend of mine had ambulatory phlebectomy and now her leg is scarred from about 50 little incisions that never really healed. Everything online says "minimal" scarring, but is that really true? It wasn't in her case and I don't know why. Do you have any idea?
I had an ambulatory phlebectomy seven weeks ago to remove some veins under my foot. I have a small (small pea) hard lump under one scar. It doesn't seem to hurt. Is this something to be concerned about? I will have a follow up with my doctor next month.
I had a microphlebectomy below my knee and radiofrequency ablation above on the same leg on the same day. Now, I have neuropathy in that leg from mid-calf to nearly my groin. It's been one month. Are stockings contraindicated with neuropathy?
I have some hyper pigmentation on one of my legs after having ambulatory phlebectomy and endovenous laser ablation. What topical treatment can I use to help fade this hyperpigmentation? Or should I just give it time to fade?
Over the past 3 years I was diagnosed with insufficient circulation due to weakened veins. The doctors told me there was no medicine and that the only alternatives are compression stockings or an ambulatory phlebectomy. Is an ambulatory phlebectomy necessary or would compression stockings work just as well?
It has been 6 days after my procedure..each day I noticed a sore area in my inner thigh...today I felt what seems to be a large lump 3- 4 inches long, two inches wide that is solid...any ideas? Should I go to Doctor?
My Dr discussed EVLA and Sclerotherapy. Now, my paperwork mentions EVLA, Deep Sclerotherapy, and Phlebectomy are approved by insurance. I was told that this is just a back up procedure, but I am uncomfortable with the seemly casual addition of taking out veins.
I have type 2 diabetes that is not well controlled (hba1c is 11). I'm having radiofrequency ablation & a stab phlebectomy. I'm concerned about anesthesia and wound healing. What are the risks based on my condition?
