At night I have been having pain in my thigh below and at my scar I am almost at my 1 month after surgery was just wondering what it could b e
@ginger62 Does the thigh feel like nerve pain or feel muscular? I am having a terrible problem with pain in my R thigh which definitely feels like nerve pain and I believe must be sciatica. Sitting for prolonged periods of time exacerbates it and we were in the car yesterday for six hours driving to Maine and back. The pain was so intense this morning that I actually passed out for a moment and collapsed on the kitchen floor! My husband called the EMTs and they came and checked me out. By that time I was fine. This is not usual for me, I only passed out once in my life before, from a severe sunburn in HS.
I have an appointment scheduled with my orthopedist but not until July 30 so I am going to call tomorrow and see if he can get me in sooner.
I think muscular it happens at night I wake up and it last a little bit and goes away after I rub it

@ginger62 have you called your surgeon and asked him if this is typical and what the best way to deal with it is? I think a call is in order it you have not.
