Q: I had EVLT greater saphenous vein on right leg in mid May 2011 and two phlebectomys on the ankle. I have A LOT of spider veins on the anterior dorsum of the ankle and it still aches daily. Why does wearing 15-20mmHG hose make it hurt worse? Is this normal?
A: Treating the spider veins with sclerotherapy will be a more direct approach to treating this problem than wearing compression stockings.
