Question: I live in Tucson, Arizona and had VenaSeal done by a doctor here. Should I have pain and swelling after my VenaSeal procedure was carried out? It was purported to be painless compared to radiofrequency ablation (RFA).

Answer: VenaSeal is not a pain free recovery. The body goes through a healing process with any type of vein closure. Although there is less pain associated with not having thermal closure, the body still needs time to heal. Our practice recommends anti-inflammatories, ice, and frequent low impact exercise. Some patients find use of low grade compression stockings help as well.
