Small Saphenous reopened after ablation. Is there any possible future harm?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 1 month ago1 answer
My small saphenous vein was ablated in September 2017, but it seems that it had reopened just under the sapheno-popliteal junction. My question is the following: does this put me in any possible future harm? Could this reopening mean that the sealed/ thrombosed part (by ablation) of the vein could pass on a thrombus into the opened vein?

Late September I had the surgery. I wore compression for 2 weeks and had the normal swelling and bruising. After compression were off my knee swelled up 3 times the size of my other one. I return to my vein doctor for a checkup as I did not think that this was normal. He did an ultrasound to look for a blood clot which there was none and his exact words were "whatever you have going on is not my fault." I am to the point where I can barely walk and put pressure on my leg. Is this normal?

Why do I have a numb/tingling feeling in legs, constant pain, tissue loss and increased varicose veins following laser ablation a year ago?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 3 months ago2 answers
I had numerous sessions of laser ablation with my cardiologist a year ago. I think I was her first patient. I’ve had severe pain since; I wear compression stockings everyday. I developed many new varicose veins. One calf muscle has a large depression in it; before it was just a round muscle. What could have caused this? Treatment ended when insurance ran out. I’ve seen her once since then. I’ve asked for my files 6 times to see another doctor but I can’t get them. Neither could another doctor.

Is it normal to have a blood clot and pain in GSV four months post venous ablation?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 4 months ago2 answers
I was diagnosed with stage 2 venous insufficiency of the left leg. The cardiologist performed ablation of GSV in mid June 2017. I presented to local ER the next day with cellulitis, elevated D-Dimer and the ultrasound showed a superficial clot in GSV. I missed a week of work, have used compression hose, and had 3 follow ups with the cardiologist. I have constant pain and weakness in the left leg. I had two US this week at different facilities and the clot is still in the distal saphenous.

My doctor stated during post op that he's never had a patient have that but that it should go away in a couple of months or I would get used to it. Is this something to be concerned about? Should I go see another specialist?

Is vein removal and ablation safe since I had CMPD tib/fib complicated by severe osteomylitis and other complications?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 5 months ago3 answers
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?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 6 months ago1 answer
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 the great Saphnenous closed from mid thigh to groin. I now have developed several spider veins along the inner thigh from mid thigh to knee.

I am wondering if this is because the vein is still leaky? Would sclrtotherapy on the remaining great saphenous alleviate the spider veins and prevent future ones from forming?
