Question: I had EVLT by another vein doctor and it resolved most of my pain. Four weeks after I had foam sclerotherapy, my pain returned. Actually, it has worsened. One month post, I wear 30-40 mm stockings daily, but still I hurt SO much. I see my doctor in a month, any thoughts about what might be wrong?

Answer: Your pain should not be worse after sclerotherapy unless it is directly in the area of treatment, and even that should be transient. I would see if you can get in sooner with your provider to address your worsening symptoms.
