I had venus closure 3 years ago and have had pain on and off since then. It was worse 3 months ago where I went to the ER and they did a deep vein ultrasound. Everything turned out fine and I took an OTC pain medication for about a week and it brought the pain back down to tolerable. Now again, 3 months later, I have the same pain in my leg. I started taking a pain medication a few days ago and it isn't helping just yet. Should I be concerned?
You should seek medical attention for a full assessment of your pain. I think it's better to be safe about something like this, don't you? I know I'd worry less knowing you had it checked out. In the meantime, this link may be helpful to you: Thromboembolism
