POST OPERATIVE LEG PROBLEMS (RLS)
on July 15 (a month ago) i had my bladder removed.(cancer). i have a neobladder . right now, one of my first problems is that i now have restless legs syndrome (RLS). this condition is making it impossible to sleep. i am sure it is related to spending 12 hrs on the operating table, positioned like a frog ! (really.) now the only thing my doc's staff is suggesting is going to a neurologist, taking nerve conduction tests, etc. i barely have any energy to push thru this recovery, let alone start down a whole new road. i am also having other problems with my legs, so i am sure it is all related.
in addition, i wonder has anyone had a lot of weakness in their legs post-op ?
has anyone experienced this after their surgery ? how have you handled it. any input is appreciated.
