My restless leg and its treatment

“A little over 3 years ago I went to see Dr.A at the Fridley clinic to have sclerotherapy done to my legs.  As usual with any Dr. visit, especially if it is your first visit, you are asked to fill out a medical history form.  On that form I indicated that my legs felt heavy a great majority of the time.  That I almost always experienced swelling to my ankles, on and off leg discomfort, and moderate to severe restless legs.  I mentioned I contributed these symptoms to my MS.  Dr.A said that may be the case, but he wanted to do a doppler study to see if there could be another cause for these problems.  The doppler study showed that I in fact did have some very nasty vein issues to both legs and that may be the contributing factor for my leg problems.  I am so very thankful Dr.A wasn’t convinced that my MS was totally to blame”.

“Dr.A is extremely knowledgeable and passionate.  He is such a caring, thoughtful, sincere, and patient person.  He did not rush me and gave me as much time as I needed to ask questions and fully understand the ablation procedure he would be doing.  The procedure itself was painless, but there was a little stinging to the site he was numbing.  That stinging went away very quickly.

Since the procedure I have very little, to no ankle swelling, my legs no longer have that heavy feeling, and I can’t remember the last time I had leg discomfort other than when I bang them into the corner of the table or chair, etc.  What excites me the most is the good riddance to my restless legs.  Well not completely.  I do have some restless legs, but only after walking 5 or more miles without allowing my legs to rest.  But that is nothing compared to before when the restless leg problem could and would happen at any given time.

I can’t speak more highly of Dr.A and his wonderful staff.  Every time I have gone there for either a treatment or recheck I am always greeted by my name and with a very welcoming smile.  I can honestly say I have never seen or heard them to be unhappy.  They all work so well together.  It is wonderful place to have such good care.

Without hesitation I would recommend Dr.A and as my husband calls him; “The best vein Dr. in town.”  Thank you Dr.A for taking such good care of me.

Sue.
