I've also post this in the topic 'Causes of parasthesia'
Info about Endovenous Laser http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endovenous_laser_treatment
Read what DRs reply to a person who had Endovenous Laser procedure.
Can EVLT cause nerve damage?
I was impressed to read they all agreed to yes it can.
I need to mention that i have nothing against this procedure, i am not fully aware of it.
But, the positive reply, made such an impression to me.

Just some parts. He means nerves .
EVLT can cause thermal injury to nervers. Most commonly the injury is to small cutaneous sensory nerves that can cause skin numbness in a small area overlying the area of vein that was ablated. Injury to motor nerves is much less common, but can occur.
EVLT can be the cause of nerve damage, especially of the small sensation nerves. If this occurs, healing can be expected, however patience is required as nerve tissue is the slowest type of human tissue to heal. It can take up to a year for nerve damage to heal.
The sensory nerve is particularly close to the greater as well as the short saphenous veins at the ankle level. Thus, if the vein is treated this far down the leg, the incidence increases.
The fact that your discomfort is worsening may actually not be a negative factor. As sensory nerves regenerate, they can create uncomfortable sensations but may represent healing.
