If you've had sclerotherapy

How many treatments did it take in your case to get rid of them?

It really depends on the size of your varicose veins and if the phlebologist is using foam sclerotheraphy or conventional sclerotheraphy.
You can learn more about the difference between the two here:

I had conventional sclerotheraphy done three years ago, and I had to go back four times. But the truth is, even after a "successfull" treatment, your varicose veins can come back. I learned that here:

I hope it helps! Good luck

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
