Is closure an option for me?
Vein Treatments -6 answers
I am 40 yrs old and have varicose and spider veins. I also have discoloring and hardening around my ankle. After years, my eighth knee surgery was a replacement but the leg still swells, is painful, and cramps at night. I know my valves are bad from previous clots as I have a hyper coag state. No one seems to understand. All this said, is closure an option for me?

Should VNUS or EVLT and foam sclerotherapy be performed at the same time or spaced out?
Vein Treatments -5 answers
What are the benefits and downsides of treating varicose veins with VNUS or EVLT and foam sclerotherapy at the same doctor visit vs. having the foam treatment at a later time? Is there a large percentage of patients who don't need foam after ablation? I'm a 36-year-old male with not much pain but several bumps on my calf and behind my knee.

Is there a procedure that can remove all of my remaining varicose veins?
Vein Treatments -4 answers
I had varicose veins when I was pregnant with my two children. My legs hurt and my veins would protrude. As soon as I had my son, I had the same problem; they hurt a lot when I was standing. I sought treatment from a doctor two years later and he injected my veins. Six months after that my legs hurt but the veins were no longer protruding. I still have more varicose veins because he didn't remove all of them. Is there a procedure that would remove all of my varicose veins?

Is pain 3 years after varicose vein surgery normal?
Vein Treatments -4 answers
I had a varicose vein surgery done when I was 18. I had two veins stripped from my leg, and they also closed off a vein with radiofrequency ablation. I still experience a lot of different pain, mostly in the winter. As soon as it gets cold out, any walking around will cause a lot of pain in my leg in the area that the surgery was done. Does this sound like something the surgery could have caused?

Should I have my veins treated?
Vein Treatments -4 answers
I had sclero done on my rt leg to treat some reticular & spider veins, mainly on my lower legs. I was told I should get the blue veins treated on my upper leg as they are "feeding" the darker blue veins on my lower legs. I don't have any bulging veins. Is this common practice? I'm worried they may have treated veins on my thighs that were perfectly fine, or at least they looked fine. My stains from sclero last long, so worried about how it will look.
