Thigh Pain and Numbness

My right outer thigh has been numb and painful still 2 years after my Total abdominal hysterectomy. I know the weird feeling you talk about when shaving your leg in that spot.

Re: Thigh Pain and Numbness

I had my hysterectomy on November 30, 2009. I know the pain and numbness in the thigh area that you speak of. I have the same problem now. I was hoping it would go away as I continue to recover. Does anyone know what causes it?

Re: Thigh Pain and Numbness

I don't know what causes it unless it is the position they have you in during surgery possibly, just thought I would share my experience with the numbness. Maybe another sister will come along to explain it to us.
I know the numbness you speak of from when I had knee surgery 10 yrs ago, it is still numb & tingly when I shave my legs. I now have a numb spot on my inner upper arm from the hyster. last month, my Dr. said it is most likely from the way my arms where positioned during surgery & should heal in 6-8 weeks-(still numb & I am 6 weeks post-op now). My thought is that when the tech put the band around my arm for the inserting of the IV, he pinched the skin in that area. I had a HUGE dark bruise (right where the band had been) when I came home from the hospital the night after surgery.
The arm numbness is the only complication from surgery so I am not complaining- had very little pain during recovery.

Re: Thigh Pain and Numbness

My Dr. said one of the complications was nerve damage from the position you are in during surgery. She tries to put her patients in a position that this won't happen. Good luck it still could go away.
