EVTA Questions

Can sclerotherapy be used to ablate any portion of the GSV that EVTA may not have gotten, or does the catheter procedure have to finish it up?
EVTA - 2 weeks ago2 answers
The 5-6 week post ultrasound shows both GSV were ablated and no DVT's supposedly, but there is a 1-2 inch varicose vein on the medial side of the knee by one of the insertions that is still there. I thought that was GSV, but can a tributary be literally right next to it? When I bend my leg up into a position to get into bed about a 10" line in the region is sore. Also, on the back of the calf there is a slightly bulged out region of 4"x3" that is lumpy. Can that happen after the GSV is ablated

Could EVTA in the thigh cause a feeling of tightness or stretching behind the knee & numbness in back of the thigh and hips?
EVTA - 1 year ago4 answers
Symptoms Improve with light exercise & worsen after sitting or standing too long. Numbness in back of thighs & hips if sitting or even laying down at night. Both legs done four months ago, but symptoms only present in leg treated above knee. Other one entered thru calf is better. Dr. said veins are functioning & thought possible tendonitis or Baker's cyst. Symptoms only presented after EVTA, so I think they are connected.

Should I have Venefit done?
EVTA - 1 year ago11 answers
I had ultrasounds and my left leg supposedly has blood flowing south in the superficial vein. I have no pain, leg cramps, nothing. The spider veins are unsightly and I grow concerned to remove that one cluster where I cut my leg at the spider vein area last year and it would not stop bleeding until pressure wrapped. Can I just have the spider veins removed now and wait for the Venefit procedure until next year? I am concerned about developing blood clots from Venefit.

I had radio frequency ablation 10 days ago and the vein at the side of my knee and in my calf remain. Will they disappear completely?
EVTA - 2 years ago3 answers
The surgeon entered my leg just above the bulging veins on that leg instead of at the knee as he planned originally. Will the remaining veins shrivel away of is it a case of having foam now?

Is it OK to go horseback riding after laser treatments?
EVTA - 2 years ago2 answers
I ride a dressage horse, which requires more skill than typical western saddle riding. When can I expect to safely ride after endovenous laser treatment?
