Is hysterectomy remove have the site effect is relate to leg pain. Thigh, knee pain?

Unusual: It's unusual to have leg, thigh, & knee pain following hysterectomy. If you had a lapararoscopic or robotic procedure, it's possible (but unlikely) that the leg stirrups were compressing the areas you have concerns with. Check with your surgeon to address the above just to be thorough. Otherwise, a visit to your primary doc may be in order to explore other possibilities. Take care & good luck. ...Read more

Swelling,: Swelling, itching, and pain in the legs that gets worse with standing is a pretty classic picture of venous outflow problems. This can happen with blockage (say, if you developed blood clots during or after your surgery), or if you have developed abnormal function in the one-way valves in your leg veins. It would not be picked up on an MRI of the spine or on a bone scan. Instead, you would need an ultrasound examination of your legs.

I would recommend that you find a vein specialist in your area. You can search the phrase venous reflux waco texas or go to this link: http://doctor-finder. Sirweb. Org/. ...Read more

Varicose veins?: If the ache is most noticeable when you have been on your feet for an especially long time during the day, varicose veins could certainly be one of the possible causes for your symptoms. If you have some very prominent visible veins, it is worth it to see a vein specialist/phlebologist.

34 female I have fever once every 2 months with very sharp leg ache in calf and front. Happening since june 2014. no other symptom. What it can be?

Maybe muscle cramps: I sorry to hear about this. Regarding the fever, what do you call a fever? Doctor's classify fever as a temp over 101.3F or 38.5C. Do you have a temp this high every 2 months. Is there any redness around the skin of the calf?
But this could be just muscle cramps. You could try eating more bananas for potassium which can help for cramps. Water also helps for cramps. ...Read more

Will genital herpes cause buttock ache/ back of leg ache even though rash is elsewhere? I.e penis

Probably not, but...: This depends on the nature and timing of the pain. If the buttock/leg discomfort is only during a genital herpes outbreak, or starts 1-2 days before, and if it clears up in another 1-2 days, they may be linked. However, herpes doesn't cause chronic or persistent, ongoing, deeper back, buttock or leg pain, that doesn't accompany outbreaks. In that case, it's an entirely separate problem. ...Read more
