Ambulatory phlebectomy procedures are generally painless. On occasion, pulling or twisting sensations occur. After the anesthetic and sedation wear off, patients are free to leave and return to normal activity. Avoid aerobic exercise for the first 48 hours. Compression stockings are necessary for one to three weeks following treatment.
Side effects of ambulatory phlebectomy are rare. Some patients may experience swelling and bruising. In some cases, sensory nerves may be damaged through the removal process, leading to temporary numbness after surgery.
