After bypass surgery my, the leg from which they harvested the replacement artery material hurt like hell. Coincidentally I saw a pain Dr for my back. I mentioned the pain in my leg he gave me a shot to "re-boot" damaged nerves. I''m pain free in my leg now.
Writing from Boston, I started to get pain in my left leg and foot six months after CABG by leading MGH surgery team.
Just started seeing a neurologist 4 days ago. I have a mylogram scheduled for Wednesday. I think that they will be loooking at the Saphenous nerve which is close to the Great Saphenous Vain that was harvested for my heart.
I was advised to have an MRI of my back and leg also, to rule out sciatica.
Have you done any of this?
I would like to know what was injected into Mpanno's leg, too.
I need some advice....my leg pain has increased daily since my aortic valve replacement last july 8,2011...I had a slight stroke simultaneously on the left side so the numbness was expected, but soon gave way to increaseing pain esp in the left foot....now both legs are affected and I can barely walk...please-someone suggest something...Drs have not done anything,,,including the neurologist, cardiologist, and Primary...I am fit to be tied (tied up and thrown away!)
Nights are the worst altho i have elevated the legs,etc..I wa told I would be my own self quickly..and being the TYPE A that I "WAS" I hoped for the best...but this is not the BEST!! I am in pain from the back down both legs and feet..
