Default Re: Venous Malformation

Hey Kristie,

I pretty much have the same VM as you (left arm) Hand, forearm, elbow.
I had treament in NYC (DR Rosen) on January 24th (last week) and it was Embolization (Injection of an "Agent")
into the large superficial veins. Now the untreated areas are giving me pain (clotting) but seemed to ease up on me.
The two fingers I had treated are stiff. I am hoping that the large veins will shrink up or go away.

As of today they look like they always have. What kind of treatment did you have and can I expect the treated areas
to shrink or disappear?

Also, If you have any before/after pics I would like to share yours and mine if possible.

Thanks,
Tom
