Laser vein removal patients

Common Questions and Answers about Laser vein removal patients


Avatar m tn I had two cherry angiomas about the size of a felt pen tip removed painlessly last year. I went to a local med spa and they used the same laser they used for spider vein removal. It only took a second. See if you have a local med spa where they have actual doctors who treat the patients ( as opposed to staff). I'm sorry your dermatologist did that to you! My friend just had some skin tags removed by her dermatologist and they left big scars.
Avatar n tn Hiya i had a 10cm mass and my right ovary removed 2 and 1/2 weeks ago. I went into hospital the night before for a pre op assesment and went down to theatre at 11am the last time i remember seing the clock was 11.20am and i came round at 2pm. The surgeon tried to do it thru the camera in my belly button but wasnt able to and had to cut me along my bikini line to remove them.
162948 tn?1205256292 I had the mirena in for about 13 months & had it removed end of august to try to get pregnant. I had thought it was more immediate. I found out it can take 3-6 months for your cycle to return. my husband and I are pretty bummed because we would have removed it earlier (or never had it put in). Anyway, I bled a few days after removal (probably due to the removal) & then nothing until a couple days of brown spotting at the beginning of this month.
233488 tn?1310696703 Quite some time back a survey was taken of retina surgeons about letting their patients return to full activities after retinal detachment surgery (much more extensive than what your husband had). Almost all retina surgeons allowed full activity after a variable period of time (with the more extensive surgery generally several months).
203589 tn?1267478770 this time another vitrectomy, laser and also a lensectomy, cataract removal with no lens replacement yet, and inserting silicone oil in my eye which stays for at least 6 months. I feel like I am living in a horror movie.
Avatar n tn My doctor then scheduled me for a hepatobiliary test which apparently shows how the gallbladder is functioning. A radio active dye is injected in the vein and the patient must lie still on back for 1-1/2 hours or more while a large camero over the abdomin takes pictures about every 5 minutes to monitor the flow the of radioactive dye.
233488 tn?1310696703 Surgery is done much later, if at all, on the very, very elderly, functioning combative or uncooperative dementia patients, those with terminal illnesses. In general cataract surgery is generally offered when a person is experiencing moderate or severe visual difficulties in activities they enjoy or need to do and the cataract is the sole or main cause.
Avatar n tn Following surgery, as many as 75% of treated eyes ex Perience accelerated progression of nuclear sclerosis of the lens, and most patients have to undergo cataract removal within 2 years to maximize the benefits of membrane peeling. Postoperative retinal detachment may occur in about 3% to 6% of patients, but this can be treated with a followup surgery. Postoperatively , the patient can expect vision to improve over a 3 to 6 month period. Patients should be monitored for recurrence.

Avatar n tn The procedure I would like to learn about is for skin tag removal although my doctor said to just leave it and live with it since the pain is so excruciating that he would not want me to go through it. I just want to know from people who had this done and to learn just how extreme the pain is to remove a post hemorrhoid skin tag. I believe I'll be getting the banding done in 6 months upon my return visit appointment with the doctor.
Avatar n tn Hi, Glad to see that we are all keeping up with what is happening to each other. Makes me feel better to go through it with someone else. My pain is mild today and I only notice it when I touch my abdomen. The swelling and bruising is much better, also. My upper abdomen is so weird. Right below the bra line, I have these "fat hunks" under each breast. It's right over those ribs you can feel. That's the only way I can think to describe them.
Avatar n tn Has anybody gone through rectal/anal skin tag removal? I had one removed by my doctor in his office. He used lidocaine (6 shots that were unbelievable painful) to numb the area and cut it off and cauterized the area. I'm having a rough time - I feel like I have the worst hemorroid flare up going on right now. I'm taking colace and fiber supplement, drinking plenty of water and began using the Desitin a few days before they recommended I start.
Avatar n tn i have seen him over ten times and all of his other patients are above the age of 50, so i am certain that he is determined to solve my problem. i will test myself for stds again, although my dr did not ask me to. do you know what stds are associated to my symptoms? i have never heard of blood in the sperm and in the urine after ejaculation being related to an std.
Avatar n tn I had one laser treatment but it was a freebie and did nothing (SmartXide Dot laser) I've done all this for well over a year and NOTHING has improved. I look like a 40-year-old with an 80-year-old's arms. I live in Canada, so have more opportunity to cover my arms than someone living in Florida and cover them I do. I am embarrassed by them. I feel shocked when I look in the mirror. So ladies, I empathize fully. If I find a solution, I will post for you all.
Avatar f tn they did a biopsy shortly after i did this post, and nothing specific came back. i've had it treated w/ medication (pills and topical) and also laser and it'll seem to look a little better for a few days but then i'm almost to square 1. it just will not seem to heal. just today they decided to do a second biopsy, because they also find it odd and worrisome. they did diagnose me with rosacea b/c in general i am very pink with capillaries close to the skin.
Avatar n tn I'm a nurse and turning patients the day after having this done was horrible - especially, because I didn't tell anyone that I had this done. Every time my abdomen would rub again the bed, when pulling someone up, was excruciating. That is strange that the doc would not email you back. Remember that the squeeky wheel gets the grease. Just cause a little stink, like the other place you did, and you will probably get results.
Avatar f tn A compression dressing was applied for 1 to 2 weeks postoperatively, and the patient was instructed to wear a sports bra for 1 to 2 months after removal of the dressing.ResultsWe treated 7 patients using this procedure between October 1999 and March 2003. No major postoperative complications were detected and recurrence was not noted during the follow-up periods. Aesthetic results were satisfactory.
Avatar n tn What could be the possible reasons for vaginal bleeding when a woman has not had her uterus or cervix for nearly 12 years? In 1994, I had a total hysterectomy (removal of my uterus, cervix, & one ovary). My cervix was removed because of pre-cancerous tissues. I began experiencing a vaginal discharge in Nov. 2005 after recommencing sexual relations after abstaining for six years. Also in Nov. 2005 I noticed old blood coming from the vaginal area (it was brown) and a slight smell.
Avatar n tn I wonder if laser hair removal is an option. At this point, I'd go for that if it would stop these painful lumps.
Avatar n tn I found the source of my pain...the posterior hardware (pedicle screws and rods). Surgical removal (09/07) of the hardware released that Lumbar triangle of pain. I still have some hip and knee pain which is a result of L4 and L3 bulging in reaction to the hardware and associated muscle tightness, but hope that over time it resolves itself. I took a risk, my Neurosurgeon gave me a 50/50 chance that my condition would improve or remain the same.
Avatar m tn I notified all of my doctors when I realized what was going on and they all told me that the belief that mercury fillings cause migraines was quackery and that insurance would not pay for the removal. They all wanted to give me drugs to mask the symptoms. At the beginning of 2009 I decided to just pay out of my pocket to have the fillings removed. I then followed the removal with a heavy metal detox called HMD.

Avatar n tn The oxygen resulted in Retinopathy of prematurity, which was treated with laser surgery to both eyes. He was in hospital for 97 days. My son is now 6 YEARS OLD, & very healthy. He wears glasses only for distance and has never required any other surgeries. He is very intelligent showing no side effects from the brain bleeds. His only-on going treatments are physio and occupational therapy for low muscle tone which may/may not be linked to prematurity.
Avatar n tn I personally have difficulty in finding a good makeup removal. Remaining makeup cloggs the pores and over time it creates this eyelid problem. That is why, 'beauty mist' steam is extremely beneficial, as it does an in-depth skin cleaning. A little makeup break or very little use of makeup is also good for your skin. I hope this helps (in fact, I'm sure it will help you)! Good luck!
Avatar n tn Fibro doc said that he wishes I would have called before getting the shot because he is asking his patients NOT to get the shot due to these side effects. But since I did he up'ed my muscle relaxer a bit and gave me some cream to help with the really bad leg cramps. He aslo up'ed my B12 a bit. He feels I have improved some due to starting B12 on day 2 of symptons. I seem to have a bit more engery today as well. He feels that I will continue to improve over the next week greatly.
Avatar n tn She did tell me that she has had other patients who have experienced extreme depression on Yaz. I am really nervous about going off the pill since i have been on it so long but i am willing to try anything at this point. I feel so out of control at times with the mood swings etc.
