I had a vein behind my right calve removed and I now have blackish-purple mark ,the size of a nickle,at one of the three incision sites. The surgery is 2 1/2 mos. old. Does amyone know what might cause this or what can be done? The doctor says he's never seen this before.Is this permanent? It's more noticable than the vein ever was.
The discomfort caused by the vein is gone, although the purple/black mark hasn't faded.
