Have you recently undergone sclerotherapy for your leg veins and are you curious about what to expect from your sclerotherapy recovery?
You are not alone.
The good news is, sclerotherapy is a procedure that typically allows you to be able to walk out the door on your own with relative ease.
However, there are certain steps you can take in order to aid in your recovery from sclerotherapy.
While you should not have your ability to move impacted by sclerotherapy, you definitely do not want to push your limits.
Be sure to always get enough sleep to aid in your recovery period.
Additionally, you should avoid vigorous activity such as bike riding, running or weight lifting until your doctor has given you the OK.
While walking is important for blood flow, be sure to increase how much you walk at a steady pace.
Your doctor will likely prescribe you medicine to aid you in your sclerotherapy recovery process.
Additionally, your doctor should provide you will a list of care instructions such as avoiding water for one to two days in order to help your legs heal.
Be sure to always see your doctor for follow up visits during your regularly scheduled times in order for them to best monitor your recovery.
Additionally, never hesitate to call your doctor at the first sign of complication.
