Has anyone experienced numbness (like falling asleep) in your legs?

I've noticed that my right leg is getting that "go to sleep" feeling every now and then. It feels numb or tingling at times.

Anyone else have this happen?

I would call the Dr. and let them know. Don't think your bugging them or being a baby. That is what they are there for. I know I've read that there are dangers following surgery of blood clots so I'd call just to be on the safe side.
Good luck and I'm praying you have a speedy recovery.

I too experienced the same thing in my first week, but in my left leg. I have to admit I was worried because they talked so much about blood clots (and we have a history of blood clots in my family). After surgery I had to wear those "pumping bags" on my legs for 24 hours and then the "socks" for 4 days to prevent the blood clots (sorry, I don't know the proper terms for those two "things"). It wasn't severe numbness and it only lasted a few days for me and eventually went away. Because it was still very hard for me to get up and move around on my own, I tried to wiggle my ankles and toes as much as possible, and moved my legs as much as I could without straining, to keep the blood flowing while I was sitting. That being said, last night my legs fell asleep while I was sleeping so if it continues, I might be calling my Dr about that.

I think to be on the safe side and to put your mind at ease, you might want to give your Dr a call. You are always better to be safe than sorry.

Hope all goes well for you.

I did ask my doctor about the numbness in my right leg and foot at my two week check up. He didn't seem concerned about it but you should call your doctor and see what they have to say. Hopefully your doctor will be more responsive to your concerns!

Sending you well wishes!
