Just diagnosed with superficial blood clot in my inner thigh. The pain is awful! I am on day number 7 with no relief. Best way to get rid of it?
General - 2 months ago2 answers
I am 39 and an overweight smoker. My clot came on very suddenly. It hurts to touch it, or to walk. I have been given a prescription for blood thinners, but they are very expensive. How long before the pain will subside? The swelling has gotten worse almost every day, and I can see and feel that the clot has moved down by my knee now. According to my ultrasound, the clot is approx 8cm in size. I have been told by one doctor that it can't break off into my lungs, but others disagree.

I am currently having compression bandages put on my leg/ankle area 3 times per week. The doctor stated he has never seen this before. Is there something I can do? This is extremely frustrating and a complication I had no idea could occur. Please help!

Is it normal to have a blister (sore) at an injection site for sclerotherapy?
Sclerotherapy - 2 months ago4 answers
I have a blister (sore) on my ankle after sclerotherapy treatment that won't heal—it's been almost 2 months. I've seen a dermatologist because I initially didn't associate it with the treatment. She said if I did have an injection in that area that it could happen. Don't know why it won't heal up and go away...the doctor who did the procedure has not called back yet.

I have reached out to my provider. They said 4 to 6 weeks before it returns to normal. Color is still off especially when I am on it. I have no idea how to care for my leg. Just had hysterectomy April 13 which led to the recent clot. I just need to know the to do's and not to do's. I will see a hematologist June 8th, but I need help now.

After vein removal my leg swelling came back worse and is more tender. I can not walk on it. Is this normal?
General - 2 months ago1 answer
I'm a 27 year old female. I was born with a large hemangioma that wrapped around the bottom of my leg. By the time I was 4 it was gone but left the bottom of my leg with very little tissue or muscle & very tender. 2 weeks ago my doctor took out some veins and tied off others. The large incision behind my knee does not hurt but the five small ones in my lower leg hurt bad. My swelling came back last night and it is so swollen my incisions look sunk into my leg, its very tender & painful.

Hi I have had phlebitis for five weeks now in my left leg. I have compression stocking and 2 courses of antibiotics with no improvement. What can I do
General - 2 months ago3 answers
The leg was previously damaged by DVT 17 years ago and phlebitis 3 years ago. The pain is really bad and affecting my sleep, mobility etc . It only lasted 3 weeks the previous time, yet this is now five weeks and it's still really bad. My GP doesn't seem to know what else to do with me. Could you advise if there is anything else I can do? how long can this last? Everything I read says it lasts 2 to 3 weeks.

Could thigh high compression stockings make varicose veins above the knee worse?
Compression Stockings - 2 months ago1 answer
I'm a 29 year old male and had sclerotherapy last year. I have recently developed varicose veins that extend past the knee about 7 inches (I am 6 feet tall) on the other side of the leg. I find it hard to keep thigh highs from sliding down through the day despite various measures. I realize that thigh highs would provide more benefit, but while I wait to see a doctor, would wearing knee highs could actually increase the risk of the veins progressing further vs not wearing stockings?

How is tumescent anesthesia used for EVLT, and does it have to be given with general anesthetic too?
EVLT - 2 months ago4 answers
Do local anesthetics also protect nerves and tissues against damage during EVLT with local anesthetics? Should the local anesthetics be given during the procedure with general anesthetic? Do the doctors apply other liquid to the treated vein during EVLT with general anesthetic? Do doctors apply NO medicine and liquid to the treated vein during EVLT with general anesthetic?
