I am hoping someone can give me some insight..
I just had this surgery on the 24th of Nov and have what they called nerve damage that will take time to heal in my front left calf it feels like it is burning and super sensitive (painful) to touch of any kind.I also get a really bad sharp pain in my right hip off and on it feels as if a needle was jabbed there. My thigh muscles in my left leg are really really sore as if I pulled a muscle.
I also feel very forgetful and clumsy since surgery and am not sleeping well at all.
I have called my surgeon about this and he blows me off and says it is normal he was a great surgeon just very arrogant and doesn't feel as if he has to explain ..
So am hoping for some insight.. thank you in advance ..


  • I would keep calling his office to get something more for pain. Even your GP Dr. could help with meds no? I believe you have a follow up appt? You may want to contact your Dr. for something for sleep also. Take care. Charry
