I have leg, feet , and toes pain intermittently, 2 years after

I have leg, feet , and toes pain intermittently, 2 years after my partial nephorectomy, along with raised veins

Hi--what studies have you had for this?

And do you have any other medical conditions and why the partial nephrectomy?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Nuorology tests, I have ulcerative colitis, in remission, 15/20% narrowing of arteries around heart, concluded no action required, and my operation was to remove a malignant tumor on the kidney, 50mm wide,

Did not spread outwith kidney and latest scan clear

OK Brian so what exactly is your question about this?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I feel that since the operation, this has lead to the pain problem,

I also feel in myself that it is possibly an arterial problem and maybe something occurred with the surgery ? I do also get very cold legs, ankles, feet and toes,

Well, possibly from the operation in that there may have been damage to either your aorta or iliac arteries but that would take an aortogram and arteriogram to look for Brian.

The other possibility would be a disk problem in your lumbar spine and possibly spinal stenosis--narrowing of the canal through which the spinal cord travels, so I would get an MRI of you lumbar spine
