What wrong wit. My foot an ankle i had lazer done ten weeks wit past four weeks i have terrible discomfort in my foot soreness swelled a bit ? Anne


I am Dr Ken and I will be helping you today.

May I know the reason for laser treatment {was it for fungal infection at the toe}?

no , i had my various veins removed in that leg on 8 feb. Last .and it was not too bad then. But. Got v bad in last six weeks .thank u Anne


Complications due to laser are not common. Before putting it on laser I would like to rule out other causes like - thrombosis of veins {as there is associated swelling}/ irritation of the small nerves {diabetes, vitamin deficiency/ pinching at the spine level}/ reduced blood flow to the foot {atherosclerosis}.

physical evaluation along with few investigations like x ray for foot/ color doppler study and blood tests would give us more answers.

Till than - Motrin should reduce discomfort/ raise the leg whenever possible, raise the leg part of your bed.

Wish you well.
