My daughter who is 5yrs old was diagnosed with ‘venous malformation’ on her right knee. We already did sclerotherapy twice. Once in October 2014 and again in September 2016. She started showing symptoms again for the past two weeks. Her knee becomes stiff and movement becomes restricted. It’s hard to see her is pain. I have few questions.
- Does sclerotherapy and embolization mean the same thing?
- How do parents of young children manage with pain. We have been giving pain killers. Is there anyother way?, because we hear painkillers are not good for use for long time.
- We are from India. Any parents with similar case from India?
- Is there any permanent solution for this? Or does it continue to reoccur? If yes, for how long?
