Ambulatory Phlebectomy Questions
I had ambulatory phlebectomy 9 days ago. The wraps came off two days ago. I know it is common to have lumps under the incisions.

The lumps are very painful. I can't wear my comp socks because its painful to touch the area and I can barely bend my knee. It is very similar to the "charlie horse" pains I had prior to the surgery. When I first stand from sitting, I have horrible shooting pains and can't bear to put weight on my leg. I elevate it every night and still take pain meds and Nabumetone. I have Fibromyalgia, maybe that contributes. Can I use heating pad? Or light messager, and/or with heat option? Cold feels worse.
My husband had a phlebectomy on both legs.

His better leg before surgery is now numb from below knee to toes. He cannot walk because he does not feel. Doctor wants him to go to PT. How can that help if Dr. injured or cut nerve ?
Is this normal? His doctor acted like he had no idea what could be going on. My husband cannot work. He was told he needed 1-2 days to recover.
Can someone run out of connecting system veins if too many ambulatory phlebectomies are performed?

There are actually three levels of veins in the body: a superficial system, a deep system and a connecting system. The deep and connecting systems are not touched; therefore, once the superficial system is closed, blood will flow normally through the connecting system to the deep system without any change in the function of the leg. BUT, can one "run out" of connecting system veins at some point if too many ambulatory phlebectomies are performed?
