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?

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

A pregnant in 7th month suffers from pain in her left leg only in femoral region. Aches severely during walking. What should she do?

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?

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?

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?

Unusual disorder: 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

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.

Can a pinched nerve cause harsh lower back pain that runs down the left bum & leg, bladder pain, femoral pain and fever?
