Vascular Surgery

Pain Continues to Worsen

01/13/2011

Question:

I had EVLT on my leg one year ago and the pain has only worsened during that time. I have been checked by ultrasound at least 3 times and all is healed and "right." However, the pain has become more acute and unbearable. My leg appearance was not bad before, but veins have begun bulging since the procedure. If the procedure was done right, what could be causing all this pain? Is there anything else I can do? I never thought I`d be desperate for the pain level I had before the surgery.

Answer:

The pain may be related to something else (non-vascular) or could be the new veins. I would consider seeking a vascular surgical opinion.
