Has anyone had trauma to surrounding nerves(Paresthesia) due to Endovenous Laser Therapy for Varicose Veins? Apparently,Doctors have been performing this procedure for a few years now, but have no clue how to treat any complications that come with it.
What is the best treatment to de-sensitize the skin until the Paresthesia passes a few months down the road????

  • I had my procedure done in january and have been having this complication in my foot and almost feels like its coming up my leg to my knee, went back to doctor that performed the procedure and doesn't know what to do either only suggested that I go see a neurologist now, I hope this goes away on its own someday but Im starting to lose hope, Im doing physical therapy now suggested by my PCM to see if it was muscular but 2 months p/t and no difference in feeling. sorry but no help here either.

  • I had the EVLT done a year ago and still suffer from nerve damage. I don't know what to do next. Sorry I'm no help. It has been over a year and a half since the evlt. I have constant leg, groin and foot pain after this procedure. If I would hav economy known prior to surgery what it could cause. I am miserable. All aches started right after vein ablation. I have been doctoring all over and no one has found a solution. After standing is when it really hurts. Have you found any answers????

I have doctored all over and know answers, so know I am trying to find answers online.
