I have a 15 year old daughter with a VM in her left calf muscle. She just had sclerotherapy at Boston Children's Hospital. The doctor is confident that he was able to sclerose everything; however, she is still experiencing pain in the morning. Does anyone know if this is becuase it has formed new paths and is clotting again? She says it is feeling less tight, but still hurts from time to time.

Anyone with any experience with this procedure? He also said she has a lymphatic malformation behind the muscle as well, which is too small to treat.
