Maybe for the groin-: Pain, though its very unlikely; leg pain: never heard of it causing it, but conceivably could happen, depending on cause of the constipation, which affects the nearby nerves to the legs, in the pelvis. Get to see your pcp or the surgeon to get evaluated/investigated. Good luck.
