Should I have all my refluxing superficial veins injected?

I’m a 45-year-old male who had ClariVein treatment on his GSV (both legs) and SSV (right leg). After 6 weeks, I still had a lot of heaviness. The ultrasound technician said I had several other veins in my rt leg by my ankle that were refluxing. They injected some with foam sclerotherapy and now, 3 weeks later, my foot feels heavy and numb. Another ultrasound saw more refluxing veins near my ankle. My symptoms are worse than before I had anything done.

I would not recommend any further treatment. I would verify that the GSV and SSV treated with Clarivein are closed and that there is no DVT. You need a venous ultrasound to determine this.

I have noticed most doctors shy away from Venaseal or Clarivien, and always offer EVLA or EVLT? Aren't the other procedures less invasive? Is there an insurance issue there?

Hello. I have had varicose veins for 4 years, and they have progressed day by day and have become recursive. Which one is more convenient and is less invasive? Venaseal, Clarivein or RF(EVRF)?

Still have pain and bulging. Had GSV done by previous surgeon who performed microphlebectomies, but my veins still hurt. They did another ultrasound and saw my LSV had VI! They did ClariVein from my ankle up to where the other doctor began below my knee. I have some numbness near my ankle, which was why he did ClariVein and not VNUS, but I am numb anyway. Now, calf veins are still bulging and I have some new ones! Nurse said come back in six months but they tingle. What should I do?

It looks like it's drying up, but not actually. My doctor says it's normal but it's been around 3 months and I see no improvement. I'm on blood thinners for last 40 days as my doc stated there is a clot. It now looks like the clot is gone because I have no swelling or pain apart from the intense pain due to the wound. I'm not sure what do I do. I have spent a lot to get cured but unfortunately things have not worked.
