Q: I am healing well after endovenous laser ablation (EVLT), except there is a small tender lump where vein was removed. My doctor said it is scar tissue they checked it on ultrasound. He recommends massage. I’ve read about serrapeptase. Is that safe to use?
A: As long as there is no fluid that can be drained from this area, the most prudent, and inexpensive, course is time. These hardened areas typically resolve in 3-4 months.
