Re: femoral nerve damage after hip op
Hello......I don't know if it is a femoral nerve, after THR in Aug and then in March, but I am almost positive that I have nerve damage also, in my right leg, around the knee to thigh area, as the groin nerve prevents me from also raising my leg. The pull pain goes from my groin to my knee, both sides. It also gets stiff at night. I try massage and that helps. I do as many exercises occasionally as I've a mind to. The doc said that it happened to my right leg when I was on it to have the left hip done. But, I can stand and walk with out pain now. So, I will live with it, possibly, unless it gets worse. I have no trouble at all with the left leg/hip, or the right hip. It is uncomfortable to sit very long, but I've heard that is pretty normal, but I don't know for how long. I feel fortunate to have ROM back for the most part......good luck.
