Endovenous Laser Ablation -1 answer
I had laser ablations of both great saphenous veins five weeks ago, as well as, a follow-up foam on each leg. The doctor says he can treat bulging shin veins. The big veins hurt but these do not. He was not clear in his answer. I have small children and am ready to be done with this if advisable.

Small Saphenous reopened after ablation. Is there any possible future harm?
Endovenous Laser Ablation -1 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?

Could this surgery possibly hinder your walking ability?
Endovenous Laser Ablation -1 answer
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 -2 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.
