Endovenous Laser Ablation Questions
Is vein removal and ablation safe since I had CMPD tib/fib complicated by severe osteomylitis and other complications?

I have pain from vein issues. In my initial consult. the doctor said I have a few veins that need removal and require ablation. I had a CMPD tib/fib complicated by severe osteomylitis of the tibia. I lost a lot of tissue in the tibial area requiring soleus muscle flap and removal of many veins and movement of others, causing reduced circulation in that lower leg. Are the vein treatments safe for me? I can't tolerate the pain anymore and won't go back on pain meds as I was on them for 15 years.
I need to know if it is important for me to have endovenous laser ablation and what will happen if I wait?

The way the ultrasound tech explained it to me made me feel that my issues were pretty serious and need to be taken care of. I have a son-in-law who is an internal medicine doctor and he is questioning whether it is necessary for me to have this done now.
I have no idea what the condition of my varicose veins are other than the ultrasound tech said I'd had "this" for a long time. I don't know what "this" is. He also remarked on the large size of one of the veins. I am really confused.

I had bilateral EVLA 5 days ago. AASV on left and GSV on right. I've notice for past couple of days that the veins in my penis, particularly the right side are swollen and engorged. They are also aching.
Is this likely to be connected to the EVLA as the timing seems to match? Is this likely to be thrombosis?

The left leg went well, but the right leg was a nightmare since I was very suddenly diagnosed with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura while receiving vein treatment. The ITP caused me to have a very heavy and unmanageable period with heavy blood loss and all the purpura all over my body. Ever since all this happened, my right leg wouldn't heal and I had to have a platelet transfusion since I was dangerously low with platelet levels. My leg looks discolored and scary, how long will this last?
