Laser vein treatment recovery

Common Questions and Answers about Laser vein treatment recovery


Avatar n tn Basically your treatment options are observation only, retinal laser treatment, and Lucentis/Avastin injections. The actual best treatment will depend on your individual findings. If you have a true ischemic CRVO (and not just a partial CRVO, or non-ischemic CRVO) you overall prognosis for visual recovery is very, very bad. Often, visual acuity end up at 20/200, 20/400 or worse. I've seen a few very unusual cases that did better, but that is not the norm.
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.
Avatar n tn Could a contaminent be responsible? Have you ever heard of a similar situation? Any suggestions? She had steroid IV treatment, 3 days - finished yesterday, no improvement yet.
Avatar n tn You eye will need to be watched carefully as there are a number of delayed complications that might develop in that eye including vitreous hemorrhage and especially a severe type of gluucoma called neovascular glaucoma. Sometimes a laser treatment is needed to prevent this from happening. Although recovery of vision is usally poor it can sometimes improve for several months although rarely does it recover fully. The condition could affect your other eye.
1423357 tn?1511089042 My daughter is all finished and in recovery, a 4 hour procedure. The electrophysiologist did a pulmonary vein isolation on the 4 veins. And said it was pretty much textbook a-fib. The 2 left veins were a little difficult to isolate, but he got them, and thinks her prognosis looks excellent. The staff at UofP in Philadelphia were excellent, and I can't day enough of the electrophysiologist. Ok, at 67 I think he looks like Doogie Howser working on my daughter, but he knows his stuff.
1408746 tn?1283678948 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).
233488 tn?1310696703 Retinal holes/tears are very common and depending on size, location, personal and family history and the presence or abscense of vitreous traction may not need treatment. If treatment is done additional tears or a retinal detachment could occur but it is much more likely to not occur. It is important for him to follow up regularly with his ophthalmologist for a dilated retina and peripheral retina exam.
Avatar n tn Laprascopic procedures mean they operate via the abdomen, using gas to inflate your tummy and working under the skin with special cameras and tools. You avoid the big external incision and recovery time is reduced. I don't recall reading that they remove fibroids laprascopically, unless they are taking the uterus out with them. Also check into the newer methods they are using where they inject into the vein that feeds the fibroids and shrink them.
Avatar n tn Doctors say I may end up having a Vitrectomy to remove floaters after a YAG laser treatment. I have to wait six months to see if the floaters go away by themsleves. I can't obviously count but I have hundreds of floaters right now casting a curtain of shadows on my retina, it is not just a few. My question to the community here is who has had a vitrectomy before for any type of problem. I'd like to know your experinces and outcomes.
Avatar n tn At the same time, they checked my left eye and saw a retinal tear so they did laser surgery. (It was very small.) Recovery was hard because I had no idea what to expect and it was done so quickly that I didn't have time to process things. I also have a severe to profound hearing loss so having any kind of vision loss was scary to me. Having a patch over both of my eyes was NOT a good experience! BUT I haven't had ANY problems since.
Avatar f tn Wishing you the best of luck and speedy recovery if you go through with the surgery! Everyone's recovery time is different but I'll just share with you my experience and some tips for post-op. I had my surgery 2.5 years ago on a Friday, it was day surgery and I was sent home the same day. I had a very rare complication and ended up having surgery again on Sunday, sent home on Monday. Both were done laporascopically.
Avatar f tn The circumflex has 60% stenosis to the midvessel. The marginal branch is grafted via saphenous vein graft. The saphenous vein graft to the marginal has a proximal 85% stenosis, and then there is a 95% stenosis on the marginal of the ramus has a 99% stenosis presumably where the graft was previously anastomosed. 3. this portion appears to be missing from report, maybe a transcription error? 4. LAD has severe proximal disease and is grafted distally via widely patent LIMA.
Avatar m tn I am hoping to get on a new treatment plan if hcv still present, and it sounds like it is, according to all replys, only problem i see now is, one poster here said its dangerous after under going detached retina surgery, also had laser treatment on left eye for a weak retina, by the way, the retina reattached itself, but with a slight fold in it, my vision is very distorted,and blurry now, a permanent condition, unless i opt to have another major surgery, with the chance it may make it worse, be
203589 tn?1267478770 I did have the vitrectomy, the buckle, laser and gas bubble with the first surgery, then another detachment (same eye) 8 weeks later...this time the surgery was a vitrectomy, lensectomy and silicone oil. So now i have the buckle and silicone oil in my eye, plus my lens was removed. I got a cataract from the first surgery in 8 weeks. Excess laser to fix a tear causes scar tissue which can lead to RD also.
Avatar n tn I've just completed my 2nd lipodissolve treatment. This time I did 2 area's, upper and lower abdomen. The first time was only on lower abdomen and I could see definately see a difference. Anyone else undergoing this? If you already did it, what was your results? This is definately not painless. Swelling, bruising, burning and pain for about 2 days. I can tolerate it, but the first hour after the injections is pretty tough to bear - but it does get better. Any questions, just ask me.
92903 tn?1309908311 LOL. Right now, face looks pretty good, like pre-treatment THANKFULLY so not sure what the next laser person will recommend, if anything. My guess is V-Beam but only for some obvious veins on nose, etc, that I had prior to tx. In the old days they just zapped those with an electrical device, maybe still do. My concern is how the skin will hold up during the winter and next summer. If it would stay the way it is now I wouldn't do anything.
Avatar n tn Too many acronyms. What is "BIH"? Do you mean "benign intracranial hypertension" that's not the preferred name for it. Preferred is pseudotumor cerebri" Treatment is to lower the intracranial pressure with DIAMOX or optic nerve fenestration surgery. If the nerve is dead (total optic atrophy) there is likely no cure and your goal should be to protect the other eye from having the same problem or new disease or injury.
Avatar n tn saphenous vein graft to LAD totally occluded at origin; saphenous vein graft to the right coronary artery is patent with good antegrade flow to main vessel; LIMA to diagonal branch of LAD is widely patent, good antegrade and retrograde flow into native vessel with retrograde flow extending into the native LAD. Retrograde flow demonstrates a 90% stenosis in the proximal diagonal branch.
Avatar n tn 1 M/ml, so obviously the more unconventional approach to treatment had a great effect. Unfortunately, in the UK the laser and ozone treatments are not funded by the National Health Service and so this cost me about £1600 ($2000). The more conventional interferon and ribaviron treatment is free on the health service.

Avatar f tn doctor isn't pushing me to stop because I have given up everything else for this treatment. I don't smoke as much as I used to because it doesn't taste so good to me. As far as how long I have had these diseases, I had test for HCV in 1997 due to sudden brown urine. Test came back negative, & in Sept 01 came back positive. I have never put a needle in myself for street drugs, I believe I received this from my husband, he treated last yr & is clear.
233488 tn?1310696703 surgical or laser corneal relaxing incisions; toric IOLs or toric mutifocal IOLs; rounding the cornea at time of surgery with brand new (2013) femtosecond laser; post operatively using lasik surgery to remove residual astigmatism. 9. In cases where one eye has a cataract that is symptomatic and causing problems with important functions such as driving, reading, recognizing faces, glare avoidance, etc.
86075 tn?1238118691 I mentioned a type of laser in my previous post -- can't readily find it -- that my doctor prefers over V-Beam for one-time vein treatment. You might want to look it up and discuss with your technician. How much are they going to charge you for the V-Beam treatment and will they do your entire face? I believe V-Beam costs $2,500 per treatment with my doctor but in my case might require more than one treatment.
Avatar n tn ) to see if I could get it taken care of. I had read online that using laser treatment to remove it was probably the easiest procedure as it keeps the bleeding to a minimum and healing is relatively quick. However, once I saw the doctor she told me that unless it was really large, swollen, painful and otherwise causing additional medical problems it wasn't big enough for her to recommend that it be removed.
Avatar n tn They said I should see something after this treatment, and I'm feeling quite hopeful. I go for 3rd treatment August 4th. I waited 3 weeks the first time, and doing 3 1/2 weeks this time, just to get it on a Friday so I'd have some weekend downtime in comfy clothes! : ) I think 2 weeks is too soon (and others noted that as well).
Avatar n tn - one week of ACV treatment on 1 wart only. - 2nd week involved more scraping. - About half the third week. Then a recovery break for about three weeks. - Notice about half a dozen more (that I know were originally there, but didn't pay much attention to). - Took a more aggressive approach, with more caution to disinfecting the area with either or both Hydrogen peroxide / rubbing alcohol. Picking open any white / dry looking spot with a sterilized needle.
Avatar n tn Postponing your surgery too long will increase your chances of getting the more invasive larger incision, more muscle is cut, therefore your recovery takes longer. The longer recovery takes, the better chances of getting complications.
Avatar n tn I know this is not a commonly documented injury due to the limited resources I could find online, so I will be sporadically updating the events that follow. I only hope that my misfortune and documentation of my recovery will help any of those that find themselves in a similar situation, or prevent some of those from putting themselves at risk for this type of injury.
Avatar n tn its not blood blisters,its a blood vessel under the skin like your vein pops and then there is a bruise for about 2 days then it goes away
