Welcome to justanswer
I am Dr.Amita and I would be glad to assist you
Can you tell me what surgery you have had?
IT WASL EFT FEM POP BYPASS
SFA stands for superficial femoral artery and distal means that the lower part ( toward the knee) of the artery was stenosed indicating inability to carry the required amount of blood to the leg
SO NOW IAM LOOKING AT RIGHT LEG AFTER A HIP OPERATION ALSO MY BACK
Can you please elaborate.I did not understand what you meant by the above sentence.
I HAVE HAD A BODY SCAN ON THE 6TH OCTOBER BECAUSE OF PAIN AND INABILITY TO WALK FAR DOES THIS MEAN MY OTHER LIMB IS AFFECTED
Did you have arterial duplex for the other limb as well?
Have you had MRI of lumbosacral spine
Does the other limb pain as well at rest or on walking
YES AND MY BACK
You would need to get an arterial duplex of the other limb as well.It is also possible that you are unable to walk because of stenosis of the lumbar spinal canal.Both these can have symptoms which mimic each other and are known as claudication.Lack of blood supply cause vascular claudication while nerve compression in spine causes neurogenic claudication.Therefore both causes need to be ruled out.
