Q: After EVLA it feels like I have a rock in the sole of my foot, how do I get rid of that feeling? I had endovenous laser ablation (EVA) 1 month ago on the back of my knee. I felt a sharp pain to my big toe during the injections and as the laser started, I felt a sharp pain to my small toes and the back of my heel (below the ankle). I had no feeling in my big toe for the first 2 hours. Now, it feels like I have a rock in the sole of my foot. It is also sensitive on the upper skin of my foot. How do I get rid of this feeling?
A: Most of these post treatment symptoms typically resolve over a few months. Did your doctor use laser or radiofrequency? I see less of those complaints with radiofrequency than with laser treatments, but can occur with both.
