How should I treat pain associated with vein ablation?
I had a vein ablation a week ago and am having pain in the area that was ablated, which is near the junction of the saphenous vein. At this point, should I be using ice and elevation or warm compress on the affected area? Using ice and elevation causes bad pain when I get up and then afterwards for awhile. I am on Eliquis, so NSAIDS are not recommended, unfortunately. I am wearing compression stockings and there is pain in the area that was treated, almost like an occlusion.
