Hard to say: There are multple potential cause and I would encourage you to be checked. Sometimes the osteotomy site will develop hypertrophic that may cause what you are describing, sometimes it may be related to the hardware that was placed in your leg to do the osteotomy, or it may be some scar tissue. Consider being checked. Thank you for the question. ...Read more

Was both with femoral anteversion. It hasn't correct on my right leg and causes me embarrassment and discomfort. What can be done about it?
Surgery: Femoral anteversion is a rotational abnormality if the hip that causes the person to walk with the foot pointed in. In an 18 year old the only choices are to live with it or have surgery. That being said, it would have to be pretty severe to have surgery for because the surgery involves breaking the femur, rotating the femur, and then applying a plate and screws, a very painful procedure. ...Read more

Myofascial pain.: If you can find a tight rope of muscle in the front of your thigh, and a very tender knot somewhere in the tightest part of the rope of muscle, you probably found the most important source of the pain. There are likely other muscles in your pelvis, buttocks, and thigh that are involved in making this pain. Learn to push hard on the knots and stretch the ropes to make the pain less. ...Read more

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, (clopidogrel) 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. ...Read more

My 11-year-old son is having hip pain and trouble with walking and lifting his left leg. We saw a doctor and gotx-rays. It was reported he has bilateral capital femoral epiphysis. What should I do?
This is due to weakness of the growth plate. Most often, it develops during periods of accelerated growth, shortly after the onset of puberty.
The goal of treatment, which requires surgery, is to prevent any additional slipping of the femoral head until the growth plate closes. If the head is allowed to slip farther, hip motion could be limited. Premature osteoarthritis could develop. ...Read more
Following femoral artery bypass procedure with artificial graft, are bumps and lumps in the leg normal, what to do?
Possibly: They can be normal depending on how soon after surgery you're talking about, but I would discuss with the surgeon who performed the operation.

Polyradiculopathy: A pinched nerve in the low back can commonly cause back pain as well as pain in the lower extremity ("bum", leg, femur, etc.). If the femoral pain is in the front of the thigh, it is likely multiple nerves are irritated at the same time. "bladder pain" and fever may be due to a separate entity such as a uti.
