Q: The leg that was treated with endovenous laser ablation falls asleep soon after sitting down, is this normal? I am two weeks out from endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) and have had several complications that my physician has seen me for. A blood clot was ruled out but now the leg that had the procedure falls asleep very soon after sitting down. Is this normal?
A: I would not say that is not normal, but I am not sure what the cause is—could be many things. Any back pain too? Or history of disc disease in your back? I would talk to your doctor about it.
