Can EVLA cause engorged penis veins?
Endovenous Laser Ablation - 1 week ago1 answer
I had bilateral EVLA 5 days ago. AASV on left and GSV on right. I've notice for past couple of days that the veins in my penis, particularly the right side are swollen and engorged. They are also aching.
Is this likely to be connected to the EVLA as the timing seems to match? Is this likely to be thrombosis?

The left leg went well, but the right leg was a nightmare since I was very suddenly diagnosed with idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura while receiving vein treatment. The ITP caused me to have a very heavy and unmanageable period with heavy blood loss and all the purpura all over my body. Ever since all this happened, my right leg wouldn't heal and I had to have a platelet transfusion since I was dangerously low with platelet levels. My leg looks discolored and scary, how long will this last?
Will more varicose veins keep popping up after EVLA? One just did. Is it never ending?

I had EVLA to get rid of a varicose vein located in the back of my calf. Shortly after the surgery, another one appeared—uglier and located in the same leg, snaking down the front. If I get more surgery, will I have more, awful veins? Will I ever get beautiful legs back? My legs were beautiful before the surgery, except for that one horizontal varicose vein, but it was kind of hidden in the back of my leg. I did it to finally get rid of spider veins, but I didn't know there would be a trade off.
Is it safe to get pregnant again shortly after EVLA?

I'm getting EVLA for my varicose veins in my left leg. They made my last pregnancy miserable due to the pain and swelling. Do I have to wait for a while after the procedure to get pregnant again? Are there any contraindications of getting pregnant shortly after this procedure?
