Common Questions and Answers about Laser surgery leg veins


Avatar m tn I've just found that I have varicose veins on my leg, I'm not sure when they realy came, but I'm only 24yo male, most the things I've found say they are more likley in girls and mainly in older people... could it be a symptom of something else? I have another thread, from a different probolem, I have posted this new one before the other I think has been closed, as no one answeres it anymore, and it was over a month ago, but the link, incase anything in it is useful is... http://www.medhelp.
Avatar m tn exercises that work the leg muscles, such as squats and cycling, help push blood back up through your leg veins to your heart. It’ll also help you lose weight, and even a 10- to 20-pound weight loss can make a big difference when it comes to easing the pain of varicose veins. Vein-strengthening supplements Here are a few supplements that are worth trying. Horse chestnut is the best-known natural treatment for varicose veins. It helps prevent swelling and strengthens capillary and vein walls.
Avatar n tn small visible dark blue veins on legs for years. How best to get rid of them? Laser? other? Also, best go to Derm or plastic surgery? Had one small area injected with something once years ago, told needed several injections. Is that still the standard?
Avatar m tn I don’t know what my options are after that. Do I go and strip the vein, laser surgery. Please advice and suggest a good specialist in Bay Area.
Avatar n tn I recently spoke with a specialist who focuses on vascular diseases and they stated that they don't do laser surgery because they didn't like the results. But a few years back I went to get saline treatments and that doctor told me that with the severity of my spider veins that he thought laser treatment would be the best. So I want a doctor who will get me results and will effectively treat my legs. I live in downtown Chicago. Can someone point me in the right direction?
Avatar n tn A medical diagnosis and evaluation will help determine the severity, and options for clinical or home-based treatment. Treatment options include sclerotherapy, laser surgery, minimally invasive catheter-assisted procedures, surgical vein stripping, ambulatory phlebectomy and endoscopic vein surgery. Discuss with your doctor which treatment option is suited for you. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn I have spider veins all over which I believe came from rapid weight gain due to PCOS. I was recently told that the pain I've been having in my legs is from varicose veins. I've tried compression stockings, changing my shoes, and leg elevation. Nothing has worked and in fact the compression stockings caused more pain. The veins on the insides of my knees are causing a lot of pain to the point that I can't let my legs touch at night. I am having pains up my thigh on the inside and back.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm a 26 year old male who suffers from vericose veins. I have had my left leg operated on 3 times now. They have done the stripping and have tied the the vein off. 2 times it has come back very quickly. I'm not sure if it will work longer the third time as I have jsut had in done last week. I first noticed a problem when i was 17. Just recently the right leg has started to develop noticeable veins in the back of the calf as well as the inside of the thigh.
Avatar n tn I have been told by a podiatrist that I have facciitis in the top of my feet which runs into the ankle and into the small muscle at the front of the leg. I have mild arthritis in the first two toes also but this does not give me the pain I experience. My feet are always sore and I can't walk any distance. When I get the stabbing pain (usually in my left foot) I notice that the veins are swollen especially the one which crosses down to the arch.
Avatar m tn she referred me to an ocular surgeon. Eye surgery for a blue vein running along the orbital bone of my right eye? Is there a laser that can remove that vein without having to go to an eye surgeon? Perhaps she simply didnt have access to an up to date laser?
Avatar n tn If I were to have surgery on these veins, w/ port wine being a vascular deformity would it be likely that I would have other veins become varicose later? I really want to have the surgery. My veins have been varicose since middle school. They are painful and restrict my exercise. I am extremely embarassed, and as could be expected, summer is the worst! I have 2 beautiful daughters that were born port wine free, and I would die to be able to wear dresses and shorts again.
Avatar f tn i have for many years on my right, right side of my leg that is darkened with veins and it keeps me from wearing dresses and shorts and short skirts, and i embarrassed by these veins i don't feel comfortable and i tend to hide it by wearing long pants all the time even in the summertime i don't wear swimming suits because of the veins, i can't afford to have surgery to get them removed or something and then i have like spidererly veins right on inside of my knee where the knee folds on both le
Avatar n tn It is not uncommon for bypass grafts made from Veins to close up. Mine lasted three months. Veins are known to be weaker than arteries but the full reasons for closure is not generally understood. In some patients they last 20 years or longer, while others can last a matter of weeks. If the Veins have collapsed, then it is usual protocol to class the patient as unsuitable for grafting and other options have to be considered, such as different methods of angioplasty. The Veins will not re-open.
Avatar f tn I just turned 25, I started with the small veins on the top of my right leg, my doctor told me its because I walk on concrete all day, standing up, for work. I quit my job and in the past 5 months they've gotten worse. They appear on the top of my left thigh too, but maybe 2 that are very small. The right leg is the problem which is strange to me that they are so bad on just the one leg on the front and back just on my thigh.
Avatar m tn Also, consider seeing a nutritionist, or a nutrition-oriented MD, regular MD's won't go in this direction - they do band-aids without getting to the bottom of things, paying attention to nutrition intake gets to the root cause. Repair what is there and you can not only avoid surgery (no matter how bad it feels, it is SO worth trying) PLUS you will prevent it from ever happening to you again. (AMEN).
Avatar n tn It burns all the time day and night. The blood veins in my left leg stick up. when compared to the other leg you cant see the veins in my right leg at all. I have had no injuries. Went to the doctor 4 months ago and she put me on gabapentin. This does not seem to help at all but I take it at night and it helps me sleep. All this started right before I turned 50. When Im up on my leg a lot driving or mowing. The pain gets so bad I could cry.
Avatar n tn So i have had nothing for pain since 3 weeks after surgery. Right after surgery in a drugged state I told him my leg hurts worse (I don't remember saying it) and his answer was " Then we shouldn't have done surgery" I had no problem with my right leg priop to surgery, but now at 5 weeks i have to drag my leg, and it hurts unbelievably, i can't even lay on my right side. Sometimes it feels like ants are crawling under my skin.
Avatar n tn Yes - I'm curious what type of surgery you had too. I heard that having laser surgery is a lot easier to recover from than regular surgery. My main concern in doing that is because the gastro doctor said in my case it would be considered cosmetic surgery at this point (doctor code for "not covered by insurance", how much does surgery like that cost if you don't mind me asking.
Avatar n tn Discomfort from gas between shoulders, nothing bad just did not expect that. Waiting for the surgery was worse then the surgery...Best of luck to you!
Avatar n tn They used veins from her leg since the grafts in her chest wall were not in good shape either . She recovered fast, and started continuing her life as usual. However, 2 weeks ago, she started feeling shortness of breath. She went through an angiogram just recently, and doctors found out that only 1 of bypasses remained unblocked. Currently she gets tired very easliy, even when eating. She can not sleep well at nights.
Avatar m tn I dont suggest laser treatment or surgery for the varicose veins problem.I dont have experience too .I treat my varicose veins with venorid and got rid of it.
Avatar f tn Found moderate endometriosis and of course, varicocele or large tangle of varicose veins, only on left side, due to nutcracker. Dr removed endo with laser. Dr also used laser ablation on varicocele walls to prevent it from pulling on my uterus. I am now three weeks post laparoscopy. Initially my left kidney hurt, but has since stopped. Now I am having pain at the surface of my skin in my left leg crease near groin area. I am guessing this is where the varicose veins re-routed.
Avatar f tn I am 47 and have had varicose veins since my 20s! I had my first 'stripping' surgery when I was approx. 24. Over the years I've had sclerotherapy several times with varying degrees of success. Two years ago I underwent the new form of surgery with the laser to remove more of my large protruding veins. My question is, how many veins can be removed, destroyed before I don't have enough left? And why do they keep popping out?
Avatar n tn I have bad varicose veins in one leg, but the pain starts in the other leg and then goes to the leg with the bad veins - I am scheduled for laser surgery on the bad leg with the veins next month, but don't hold out much hopt. If anyone has any suggestions or help, please let me know - I am so discouraged - by the way, these symptoms came on suddenly, not gradually.
Avatar f tn I had my Lima used, but the silly surgeon grafted it directly over the blockage, making it useless to begin with. They used 2 veins from my leg in addition. An echo can indicate which area of the heart is having Ischaemia (shortage of oxygen), but it cannot say to what degree, how big the blockage is or the exact location. This is why an angiogram is such a useful tool. I think to see exactly what is going on and evaluate possible intervention options, an angiogram will be a valuable test.
Avatar f tn This is when EDS mentioned. Eye laser surgery to reduce pressure in eyes Velvet skin Bruises easily Veins seen thru skin Reflux Severe headaches/migraines Excess diverticulitis pockets Had ALIF for protruding disc,degenerative arthritis,stenosis,spina bifida occulta.I think it could be meng.-opening large enough cord may have moved in and out.ALIF also for severe lower back/leg/buttocks pain,but this occurred right after repair of vaginal area.
1408746 tn?1283678948 I just recently had a major surgery for something called Nutcracker Syndrome. This Syndrome results most commonly from the compression of the left renal vein between the abdominal aorta (AA) and superior mesenteric artery (SMA), although other variants exist.[1][2] The name derives from the fact that, in the sagittal view, the SMA and AA (with some imagination) appear to be a nutcracker crushing a nut (the renal vein).
Avatar m tn I have been to several doctors some are puzzled others say it is resless leg syndrome. One doctor gave me Requip. While taking Requip I was horny as a teenager but so num in that area I could feel nothing, no sensation at all sex was impossible. I could not tell if Requip helped my leg pain, it seemed like some nights there was less pain not sure if that was because of the Requip or because I slept with my legs spread wide apart that night.
Avatar f tn I have chest pains at times, leg pains, spider veins (face and legs). I just got some tests back that I sent for when I paid to have a neurosurgeon look at my MRI to prove I had an 8 mm pit tumor... he did a blood work up. I read a lot about secondary hypothroid. My TSH was a little high (over 2.0) and my FT4 was .92 (it's suppose to be .93 to 1.1). The endo is looking into my thyroid problems as being caused by the pit tumor (that's what secondary hypothyroid is caused from).
