Is illiac vein stenting always done before vein closure?
Stenting - 1 month ago1 answer
I had two illiac vein stents without knowing they were stainless steel mesh, my doctor never let me know what they look like, or any of the risks or precautions. Had I seen them I would not have had the surgery. I am 68. I thought I was just getting one small vein on my shin taken care of.

I have a chronic occluded iliac femoral DVT in my left leg after having a total hysterectomy. Should I try vein stenting again?
Stenting - 2 years ago3 answers
It has been one year since the clot. I wear full-length compression stockings all day. Is there any chance of the clot recannalizing, or is this it for me? I walk/jog and go to the gym, but my leg swells and gets tired. I want to be normal. Can I try vein stenting again, or is there a better procedure you can recommend?

I was diagnosed with chronic venous insufficiency and mild May-Thurner syndrome 4 years ago. I have never been pregnant. I manage the problem daily with compression socks and a low-salt diet. Both legs swell every day, the right one especially. Is it too high risk to get pregnant? I am a 32-year-old female. Also, should I look into stenting?
