Glad you found a doctor! Who will you be seeing?

I can't answer your other questions, but other people will be around soon.

Hi,
I'm not in the USA, so any recommendations for doctors etc won't help you, but I have had 2 lots of sclerotherapy on my right cheek. They gave me a general anesthetic, because they do a very detailed scan at the same time to locate areas to inject. The first time they kept me in overnight, but that was because I was still classed as a child then, the second time I was out the same day. It is VERY swolen afterwards, and generally there is some blistering, but both die down after about a week. Both times the results have been VERY good!
Good luck, let me know if you have more questions

Default Hi

Thanks. I do have a couple of questions. Were you able to eat without any pain right after and can you go back to work. What is the down time?. I work as a janitorial where I do lifting and outdoors what do they ask you don't do after treatment. Again thanks for replying.

It's early here Monday morning (and even earlier there!) so I'll be thinking of you today. I'll look for an update this evening and good luck to you! Here's hoping your doctor can give you some relief!
