Foam Sclerotherapy Questions

My saphenous veins (superficial) are partially thrombosed due to foam sclerotherapy. What are the risks/options now 8 weeks after the treatment?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 1 month ago1 answer
Unfortunately after my last foam sclerotherapy treatment my saphenous veins (superficial) got partially thrombosed. I was on the strongest anticoagulant for 4 weeks now also. What are the risks now 8 weeks after the treatment, and what can/should be done to make my legs healthy and work properly again? How can it be fixed? Also, is it safe to become pregnant now, or do I need to do an operation on those saphenous veins first?

Foam Sclerotherapy - 5 months ago1 answer
The Pain is in the left, top side of my foot, just under my pinky toe joint and it hurts worse if I touch it or walk on it—especially if I push in from the side of the foot. I was instructed to wear my compression stockings for 3 days. I had the other leg done with no issues.

Six months after foam sclerotherapy my ankle and calf are still swollen, more so in the heat. Is this normal?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 5 months ago1 answer
It was a large vein and all evidence of that is now gone. I have some discomfort and pain in the ankle area. In heat, the swelling is far more evident though my leg is always swollen and I don't have clear ankle bones any more. I had EVLT 14 months ago on the same leg as well.

I had ultrasound guided foam sclerotherapy in both legs in 2013, and now I have truncal reflux, pain, more veins and swelling in one leg. Why?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 7 months ago4 answers
My right leg is two inches wider than my left. The surgeon gave that leg more injections. I've recently seen someone who says that since the procedure was done I now have lipodema and reflux in my truncal veins. Can scierotherapy make this condition worse and cause pain, swelling and fluid? What can I do to improve? Thank you.

Arm Vein & Hand Foam Sclerotherapy. Please Help
Foam Sclerotherapy - 8 months ago1 answer
I had foam sclerotherapy to my superficial arms and hands. I now have very dry hands and fingertips and have not had them in any period before. Could the removal of these veins cause my issues? The cephalic and ante branchial veins in arms look to have been removed. Are there any studies out there that show that this is safe to do? I am worried I have been recommended a procedure that has affected my health. I would really appreciate any help as to what I can do to resolve this issue.

My husband had his veins removed on Monday and he has a black piece hanging from his calf which we thought was dried blood. When we pulled it, it is attached to a little vessel which started to bleed. Do you have advice?

My leg and foot are swollen after foam sclerotherapy. Could this be lymphedema?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 12 months ago4 answers
A month and a half ago I had a foam sclerotherapy in my lower right leg. Immediately my lower leg and foot swelled up from the injection site down and hasn't subsided since. Could this be lymphedema? I had my saphenous veins ablated in both thighs and lower left leg, and those are still sore, too.

Leg and foot swelling after foam injection in shin bone on right leg. Will it subside?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 12 months ago3 answers
I have swelling from the calf down to the foot after sclerotherapy foam injection in right lower leg. It's been a month and a half. I'm worried that the foam leaked out and damaged my lymph ducts, causing lymphedema. The swelling started immediately after the injection and hasn't subsided. Will it subside -- if likely, how long? Thanks for your time. Treatment timeline: saphenous veins in thigh ablated early August. Veins in lower left leg ablated shortly after, then foam right leg.

Are heart palpitations normal after sclerotherapy? Are the two even related?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 1 year ago2 answers
A week ago I underwent sclerotherapy. I had no symptoms of concern when I went for follow up. However, I suffer from PVC and heart palpitations already, and for the last 3 days that's been acting up. My PVC can be brought on by stress. I've also had a dry cough for the same period but I'm pretty certain that's sinusitis. I'm just concerned because I go in for my second leg tomorrow. Could the sclerotherapy cause this?

I have hard lumps and pain in my treated leg. Is this normal? What do I do?
Foam Sclerotherapy - 1 year ago4 answers
I had foam scleotherapy 16 days ago on a very superficial varicose vein behind my left knee. The surgeon injected the vein with foam; however, at that moment, I felt pain along the vein in my inner thigh. I now still have bruising and there are palpable tender lumps along the length of the vein on my inner thigh. There is also pain on my left in that upper calf...no palpable lump though. What is this new calf pain?

I now still have bruising and there are palpable tender lumps along the length of the vein on my inner thigh for about 4-5 inches. Is this normal? What do I do?
