Question: Cold foot after surgery
|keith brookes - Sat Jul 17, 2004 1:39 pm||
After having surgery to remove 2 discs from my back, my right foot feels cold and numb practically all the time . Is this something to be worried about?

This might represent either recurrence of the condition once more (bulging disc) or a problem with the vascular supply of your foot, i would suggest that you pay a visit to your health care provider to have a physical exam and have back imaging if he thinks that it is needed.
Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
