Still trouble with my left leg

I'm new here and aplogize if this has already been talked about.

Since my surgery, I've had problems with my left leg. My left outer thigh skin is numb from my knee to my hip, but internally I have an area about half way up my left thigh that just hurts. It feels like a twinge or muscle. My Doctor explained that it was likely a compressed nerve from the surgery. Have other experienced this? I was hoping that by now it would have started to go away.

Re: Still trouble with my left leg

At 3 weeks post op I had pain in my inner thigh, just a small area. When I called the doctor's office I was told it couldn't be a blood clot because I had none of the other symptoms that accompany a clot. I went to the ER and and they did an ultrasound of the leg. It was a clot (Deep Vein Thrombosis). I was admitted to the hospital for 8 days.

Blood clots need immediate attention. I'm not saying that's what you have, but it would be a good idea to go to the ER and get it checked out. Better to err on the side of caution.
