I had an EVLT done 11/2 years ago on both legs. It has been a nightmare ever since this procedure. The pain started right away as I thought it was the healing process. A year later I realized this pain was getting worse and not going anywhere. I started doctoring as I had groin, leg and extreme foot pain. Of course my vein doctor washed his hands and sent me to my gynecologist, and from there I saw another vascular surgeon who did a pelvic ct scan to see if something was causing the pain. I have such a feeling of heaviness in my legs and sore feel upon getting up in the morning. It just gets worse the more activity I do. I am 40 and not overweight. I also saw a rheumotologist just to get know answers from anyone. Wen I sit my legs are ok, but when I am on my feet the pain begins. I know this EVLT caused all of this for me and if I could just stop one person from doing this I would. Sad thing is all of my varicose veins are coming back. Now they want me to go the the neurologist but I am so sick of doctoring and feel like just dealing with it. Does anyone else have my symptoms?????? Help!!!,
