Surgery for VM?
Here is my question, I have had 1 treatment of sclerotherapy I had it 5/25/05. I am still have frequent pain (at night mostly) I have some localized swelling (just at the elbow, but it's big). I have started compression therapy. Now would surgery to remove it be at all possible? I had gotten an e-mail from Dr.Levitin saying it could be discussed. But from other doc's I was told surgery is not a good ide..I am so confused, I know sclerotherapy usually needs more than one treatment, but at this point I am uninsured and cannot afford another treatment anytime soon, let alone the cost of a trip to Colorado...
Can anyone provide any suggestion, or other ways to manage pain related to VM's?
