After vein surgery I developed a burning sensation inside my urethra. What is a reason this could be happening?

Can the vein surgery cause burning in the pelvic area? I went to my doctor and there are no infections anywhere. I'm scheduled next for a scope of the urethra. The pain is unbearable to say the least..

I had a stripping procedure in the end of January (followed by 3 sclerotherapy injections), and there is a lump under the scar of the incision.
Varicose Vein Surgery - 2 months ago1 answer
There were severe incisions made for stripping, but the biggest one (2cm wide) is in the kneepit. I just discovered that there is a cord-like lump right under it that does not extend out of the scar itself. It might have been there before too, I just did not pay attention, as it does not cause pain. I don't think this is a blood clot, but is this a normal part of scarring or should it raise any concern?

I had my varicose vein laser ablation in my lower left leg 2 weeks ago. There is little pain in my lower leg, but why is my inner thigh still sore?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 4 months ago3 answers
My inner thigh is very tender to touch, to walk, and it feels warm and still swollen. My incision points are healing. I took 10 cipro antibiotic pills over 5 days after surgery. I took ibuprofen for 10 days 2x 600 mg, but have now stopped. I have been walking with a cane a little every day since the surgery.

Can someone lose his leg from varicose vein surgery?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 6 months ago2 answers
Hello, I am from Greece. My son is 31 years old and has had varicose veins on one leg for nine years. It was at an advanced stage and he had surgery in a university hospital in the city of Thessaloniki. One year later there were new varices and the doctor said they still have to perform more surgery. Is this very risky because the wounds from the original surgery are still fresh.I am concerned about him losing his leg.

What treatment do you recommend for swelling and stasis dermatitis 12 years after stripping of greater saphenous veins?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 6 months ago3 answers
I had greater saphenous vein stripping done 12 years ago. I wear 30-40 mmHg compression knee high stockings. Lately I have had numerous abdominal surgeries and have not had injections or worn the hose regularly. I have discoloration and skin changes. My ultrasounds have shown venous insufficiency but no clots. Although I have resumed wearing the hose, stasis dermatitis is not improved. What do you recommend? I am 64.

Should I still be wearing my compression stockings while flying (post varicose veins surgery)?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 6 months ago2 answers
I had surgery to treat varicose veins in both my legs in February 2016 (vein removal/blood draining) surgeon wasn't very clear on how long the compression stockings need to be worn post-surgery. I'm a fly-in-fly-out worker and spend 4hrs a fortnight flying to/from work and will be flying to Europe (from Australia) in July. Should I continue wearing the stockings while flying for basically the rest of my life, or just for long flights?

I have had issues with pitting edema in legs and feet for 3 months now. Why? Could it be due to the vein ablation I had a year ago?
Varicose Vein Surgery - 1 year ago3 answers
No other symptoms out of the ordinary other than swelling. My legs get heavy and painful the more I stand. Swelling goes down with elevation and blood work is normal. Could this be due to the vein ablation?
