leg pain/numbness after hysterectomy

I had my surgery 4 weeks ago using the da Vinci robot. Recovery is going well. However, when I left the hospital my thighs had some numbness on the surface and deep pain. The skin feels and looks odd, kind of scaley. When I mentioned it to the doctors and nurses, they thought it was due to the nerve irritation when lymph nodes were taken. Has anyone else had this type of pain?

Hi its not so common to take lymph nodes, Im thinking perhaps sciatic nerve was nicked, Id urge you to see a Neurologist as they are best qualitied to make a diagnosis and help with this.
