I had the VNUS closure procedure done 1 wk ago. My vein still looks vericosed. Does this mean it didn't work? When can I expect to see results?

I had the VNUS closure procedure done 1 wk ago. My vein still looks vericosed. Does this mean it didn't work? When can I expect to see results?

Depends: The vnus closure uses rf energy to seal varicose veins where the catheter was placed. During the seal process, the vein is thrombosed. The sealed vein will, over time be absorbed by the body. Until that time, the vein maybe visible or palpable. Absorption should be completed by the body over 4-8 months. Often times patients require added sclerotherapy for associated varicose veins post vnus. ...Read more

I'm having leg pain and have vericose viens should I be concerned?

See a physician: You should seek medical assessment/treatment. If there is new-onset pain a doctor needs to urgently assess your risk for having a significant underlying problem (e.g. Blood clot) and, if necessary, send you for an ultrasound. Varicose veins are often chronically symptomatic. If acutely so (esp if inflamed), an ultrasound should be performed to see if it is phlebitis vs phlebitis + occult deep clot. ...Read more

Hi how are you? I suffer from a very soar vericle seal testicle and in need monthly oxies or percocet Thanks Steve

Get it fixed: If you are taking oxycodone for a varicocele, you have 2 problems. First, you should see a urologist to get the varicocele ligated. That will stop any testicular pain from a varicocele.

Second, get some help from a pain management physician. Pain from varicocele is usually not bad enough for chronic pain medication of any kind. You may have a drug dependence problem.. ...Read more

How much would this cost/ would it be worth it? Also could the surgeon do both of these surgeries at one time? Two mild hydroceles, mild left varicole

Hydrocele/varicocele: Both surgeries can be done at the same time by the same surgeon (i.e. a urologist). The cost would vary from surgeon to surgeon and state to state. I think the surgeries should be done to correct these problems. You are a young man. ...Read more

Here are some. ..: Varicocele-related testiculat pain is unique in its onset, degree, evolution, & resolution like those for varicose veins in lower legs. If voricocelectomy failed to relieve the pain supposedly from varicocele, that indicated the presence of varicocele is not related with the pain in testis.

Tell me good exercise for reduce thighs without affecting my vericose vein problem. I have varicose veins, I want to reduce my big thighs. Please?

Avoid breath holding, squats, running, dead lifts. Walk on an upwards incline and do high rep low weight lifting. Avoid leg exercises that bulk up leg muscles. Diet plays a large part, unfortunately, overall weight loss will be worth the effort. ...Read more
