The nurse who has been injecting my reticular and spider veins now won't treat the reticulars. Any advice?
Sclerotherapy - 2 answers
A nurse has been injecting my reticular veins and spider veins. This time around, she said she will only inject the spider veins. I'm not comfortable with this as I believe the reticular veins are feeding my spider veins. I had a Doppler ultrasound (she used the small handheld device) where she checked to see if there were any underlying vein issues and said there was none. I’m not convinced. I require another 2 - 3 treatments after this. Advice?

Is it normal to feel tired a few days after endovenous laser treatment? If so, why does this occur and for how long?
EVLT - 1 answer
I just had the endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) and foam sclerotherapy yesterday. I came home and slept a good amount. For the most part, I feel pretty good. I'm a little swollen and achy around the insertion site, but more than anything I'm fatigued and my energy levels are null. I am an always-on-the-go kind of person. Is my fatigue normal? If so, why does this occur and for how long?

How can I speed up recovery after endovenous laser ablation?

Can under-the-knee compression stockings cause hip muscle pain?
I wore under-the-knee compression stockings for about a year. I had pain and soreness in my hip muscles, especially the left side, during use. I went through physiotherapy treatment and the pain got better. I decided to stop wearing the stocking for a bit to see how the pain would react, and it is getting better.

Does wearing the same pair of compression socks daily cause them to lose their effectiveness over time?
I went from receiving 3 pairs of compression socks per month to one. I think one pair per month is unsatisfactory. I am disabled and had an open ulcer on my right shin for two years before a specialist prescribed compression socks. I had venous insufficiency, but it has now cleared up due to wearing these socks. I'm worried ulcers will return if I have to wear the same pair of socks every month. Wearing the same pairs day after day will mean that they will soon lose their effectiveness.
