tender varicose veins

I have a large varicose vein on the back of my left thigh.  Two weeks ago, I had major surgery and this vein is very tender to the touch and hurts somewhat when I walk.  Is this from the lack of exercise because of my surgery or could a blood clot be forming?  Note: I see no redness, swelling etc that would be a sign of a blood clot.  Thanks, Gina

Vericose veins just after some time can naturally become very tender. It could just be from lack of movement. I don't think it's a blood clot, personally. You can try wearing a compression sleeve, which may help relieve some of the pain. hope you start feeling better. good luck.

Thanks Sweetpea.  I did have an ultrasound and no blood clot was found.  I have an appointment with a vascular surgeon tomorrow to discuss injecting or removing the vein.  Gina
