Vein Laser Surgery
Vein Laser Therapy: I suspect you are referring to EVLT laser ablation treatment. Since the vein is initially numb from Novacaine anesthetic, there is usually numbness of the skin for a couple of hours. Then you will have some mild soreness & tenderness of the treated vein (usually inner thigh) for several days. After that, there may be some intermittant aching & tugging sensations at the therapy site for about 1 wk. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Surprisingly little: Laser surgery for varicose veins causes surprsingly little pain afterwards. You will have some bruising that might be a little tender. You might feel a mild tight, pulling, or stretching feeling over the treated vein for several days. Walking makes this feel better.

Is it safe to get pregnant if my husband on my ovulation day will have one leg varicose vein(thromb preventing) laser surgery?
Yes, if immediate: It is normal to weep a small amount or watery fluid or slight blood-tinged watery fluid IMMEDIATELY after laser vein surgery (within the first couple of hours). This is the result of the tumescent anesthesia leaking through the laser puncture site in the skin or from the puncture sites made for injecting the numbing fluid (the Xylocaine (lidocaine) / Novacaine fluid used to numb the area leaking out). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

TURP vs laser TUVP: Main differences occur with the surgeon's experience. Both procedures (mandated by insurers) must be scheduled/performed on an "outpt" basis, and may leave you with a foley catheter for ~ 1 week. Reports suggest longer post-operative discomfort following laser tuvp. Also, no tissue is typically obtained for review with a laser procedure, unless the surgeon is performing a laser "resection.". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
