I had a vein removed in 2007 in my left leg. Now ulcers form all over the ankle and sides and it itches. When I scratch, liquid oozes out.

Varicose Vein Treatment - 2 months ago1 answer
My father has varicose veins in both legs. The right leg has been operated on twice by laser ablation and it's completely fine, but the other left leg has been operated on once and after a few months he had a DVT in that left leg. The DVT for that leg has been treated and varicose vein treatment is to be done on that same leg. My father isn't getting a satisfying result from anywhere.

Do I need antibiotics for swelling and tenderness after a recent vein procedure?
Varicose Vein Treatment - 2 months ago1 answer
I had varicose vein procedures in both legs recently. The left leg developed swelling and tenderness nine days after. I called my doctor's office on Saturday and they said to go to the ER. The ER doctor said it was a skin and underlying tissue infection and prescribed antibiotics. They said to see my regular vein physician as soon as possible. My vein physician said this was a normal reaction and told me to stop the antibiotics and that the swelling would go away in about three months.

External banding valvuloplasty for incompetence of the GSV vs stripping or ablation? Pros and cons? Finding an experienced physician?
Varicose Vein Treatment - 3 months ago1 answer
I'm a 40 year old male teacher. I was recently diagnosed with venous insufficiency and varicose veins. My duplex ultrasound only showed a little reflux at the SFJ in the left leg when bearing down, but the test was performed in a position where I was lying down, only slightly inclined (20-30 degrees above horizontal). I have read studies on external banding valvuloplasty describing good outcomes, but cannot find anyone who performs or can answer questions on the procedure.

Is treating a varicose vein with heat detrimental?
Varicose Vein Treatment - 4 months ago1 answer
I was just diagnosed with a varicose vein in my lower leg. Prior to diagnosis I was treating the area with a warm compress because it eased the pain. My doctor examined and diagnosed and gave me tons of tips for taking care of it, but I forgot to ask if the heat treatment is why it appears bruise-like in appearance. It's a bit red at the sight of the vein. How long before this should improve?
