I had the Vnus Closure treatment 2 1/2 months ago.The last few weeks I have had large blue veins branching out from the upper front of my thighs,along the side and backs of my thighs and knees. Some behind legs are starting to bulge. Never had any veins on my thighs before Closure. What is happening?
More Veins Than Ever 2 1/2 Months After Closure

Post closure procedure, if new veins begin to form, then a reason for their formation needs to be evaluated. This is best done by a follow up venous reflux ultrasound. You need to ensure that the treated veins are closed, that there is not another source (refluxing valve) feeding the new veins or that you now have new vein formation (neovascularization). Depending on the ultrasound findings, then appropriate treatment can be started. This may require closing other valves, sclerotherapy or microphlebectomies. You should return to your treating physician or follow up with a vein specialist.
Bulging veins after vnus
i would get another ultrasound to make sure no dvt is present. more than likely all those veins were there before vnus and you just didnt pay as much attention to them.
bulging veins are not always treated with just vnus alone. sometimes a microphlebectomy is also needed.
