After having sclerotheraphy injections for spider veins, my knees were extremely painful and I could barely walk for the rest of the day.
Sclerotherapy - 2 days ago1 answer
This was my third session and had no issues after the first two. After the treatment this time I had such severe pain behind the knees and couldn’t put any pressure on them. It was like that for the rest of the day. The next morning the right knee was much better but the left still sore and I’m struggling walking up and and down stairs. It’s now two days later and still the same. What can I do about this?

Will it affect my results if I wait longer than 2 weeks for my next appointment after sclerotherapy on my feeder veins and spider veins?
Sclerotherapy - 5 days ago1 answer
After injecting my feeder and spider veins, the doctor said "see you in two weeks," but I won't be able to go in two weeks due to several personal matters I need to take care of. Does it affect your cosmetic results if you wait longer in between follow up sclerotherapy appointments? (I was thinking a month or two.)

Leg Pain Treatment - 5 days ago1 answer
Once in a while I woke up from sleep with severe intense pain on my left leg from thigh to foot. It lasted from 2 to 6 mins. I am a registered nurse. I wear compression stockings at work during the day. It helps. Should I also wear them night?. It scares me whenever it happens because the pain is usually unbearable until it finishes its course and duration.

Should I look for a different size compression stocking?
Compression Stockings - 1 week ago2 answers
Each day at work I either walk around for 8 hours or drive machines for 8 hours. To help fight leg fatigue I've recently started wearing compression stockings. However, they seem to be the tightest around the lower-to mid calf. The ankle section still is semi-tight, just not as tight as the calf. Should I be looking into a different size or brand? I have athletic calves, so I'm not sure if I need to look into a wider brand or not.

I had endovenous laser ablation done. Can I fly one week after? My follow up visit isn’t until 2 weeks after.
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 2 weeks ago1 answer
I was not given a lot of instructions after my procedure. I was told to either wear the wraps or compression stockings for two weeks after, and that was it on instructions. The only compression stockings I found appear to be too big, so I ordered different ones online. I am taking a trip, one week post procedure. Is flying okay, or should I be seeing the physician before the trip?
