A 49-year-old female asked:

Pulled hamstring?: Several causes of pain in the buttock area. Pain can be caused by a hamstring pull, by sciatica(limited) or by something called piriformis syndrome. Treatments for these things can include exercise, heat, stretching, injections, rarely surgery. Like any persistent pain, a physician should be involved at some point to do a more detailed exam and arrange tests or treatments.

Chronic leg pain: If the leg pain existed before surgery, either the cause was not vascular or else the surgery was done too late and damage was permanent. If the pain occurred after surgery, injury to a nerve may result in permanent pain.Followup with the treating surgeon is important.

MenaQ7 : Menaq7 is a vit k2 product derived from soybeans. Its use has been touted for both heart disease and treatment of osteoporosis. The problem described sounds like osteoarthritis for which the menaq7 probably has less benefit. Very few scientific studies have been done on vitk2 so many of the benefits on the internet are from sellers of the products and results are anectdotal.
