Phlebectomy Questions

I had a phlebectomy 3 days ago. My thigh-high compression stockings cut right through a large bruise, making it painful. Can I stop wearing stockings?
Phlebectomy -1 answer
I had a phlebectomy 3 days ago on my leg, almost up to the hip. My thigh-high compression stockings cut right through a large bruise, making it painful. I don't have full compression stockings, nor do I want to buy and wear them in this summer heat. Is it okay to stop wearing the compression stockings if they make things worse instead of better?

Phlebectomy -1 answer
I had a phlebectomy of my foot varicose veins, along with EVLA for my leg's varicose veins. I've noticed that on my foot and ankle, where I have stitches, there is swelling. I am 2 days into recovery. Does this go away?

My thick, twisting GSV tributaries were treated with foam sclerotherapy, but they are still exactly the same after treatment. What are my options?
Phlebectomy -2 answers
I had my GSV ablated to resolve the reflux, and the tributaries were injected with foam sclerotherapy during the same procedure. They are still visible after treatment. My doctor insists on another round of sclerotherapy to treat them, but I am concerned due to their size it won't be effective. Are there any other options to resolve the visible tributaries? Also, for bulging surface veins below the ablated vein, does that mean some other reflux is still present?

How likely is it that a preforator could still cause heaviness in my legs? How long until new varicose veins form from an open, leaking preforator?
Phlebectomy -2 answers
I had laser done to my lessor saph. vein along with ambulatory phlebectomy (done in late September). There was a residual varicose vein that was missed which was injected with sclerotherapy (mid November). I had ultra sound reports from other places saying that a re-fluxing preforator was the main cause of my reflux. I still have a heaviness in my leg and I am worried it is being caused by my preforator which I was told the phlebectomy would treat (by cutting off the connection).

Why would my doctor miss taking the intended bulging veins in a phlebectomy?
Phlebectomy -1 answer
In April I had a phlebectomy performed and I have waited an appropriate time for the results I expected. I went to the doctor because I was experiencing pain and noticed veins bulging in my ankle and the back and inner side of my right calf. Those veins are still bulging and the pain is still there. I don't know what he did but I'm still suffering. I have all these little scars and nothing to show for it. I can't get back in to see him until the end of the year. What's up with that? I'm age 59.

My dad has a calf DVT that turns his leg blackish. Would a phlebectomy help?
Phlebectomy -2 answers
My dad has a calf DVT that turns his leg blackish. Would a phlebectomy help? I hope that if that vein was cauterized the other veins would take over and he would be more comfortable to fly and have a better quality of life overall.

My doc removed my healthy veins instead of my problematic veins. What now? What complications might I face? Is treatment still possible?
Phlebectomy -3 answers
I had the GSV removed from my left leg and LSV removed my right leg. However, the doctor inadvertently took the wrong veins from the wrong legs. He took healthy veins and left behind the bad veins. I'm not asking you to respond to the doctor's actions, I'm asking what now? What complications might I face? Is treatment still possible? I still have pain and a black mark on the back of my left leg where I did have superficial thrombophlebitis.
