I have numbness in my leg after back surgery how long will it take to go away?

Talk to MD

Extremity-lower-one_side
The nerves may have been damaged or bruised by either the operation or the disease that caused you to seek surgery. These nerves can take a long time to recover, and sometimes do not. The best judge of this is your surgeon. Talk to them about your concerns. If needed get a second opinion if not satisfied.

How long does leg swellong last after back surgery?

Depends

Leg
Leg swelling is not normal after back surgery. Blood clots in the leg should be ruled out if this is a new phenomenon that developed in the days and early weeks post-op.

What to do if I just had leg surgery, how long is it to build back bone density?

6 weeks for healing

Bone_density
You had leg surgery. You want to know how long to heal. 6-8 weeks will have the maximum deposit of collagen to the skin or scar. The bone gets tacky in 7 days after surgery but still takes 6-8 weeks to heal. The body continues to remodel over time. Eat well focus on breathing and exercise when you can. Be well

I will be traveling for femoral artery (leg) bypass surgery. how long before I would be able to fly back home?

Depends

A lot hinges on how you do. Once you are walking, eating, voiding, and your incision looks good, there is no reason for you to stay. You will be on aspirin and probably Plavix, so travel should not be a problem. If you are concerned, there should be a vascular surgeon closer to you who could do the surgery.
