Leg pain after Urostomy

My friend her bladder removed 20 days ago.  Ten days in the hospital she started having terrible pain in her right leg like a "charlie horse".  It has increased with pain and she has had an xray, a dopler,  CT scan, and today an MRI.  The pain is so intense she is not eating and is now dehydrated.  She tried massage and no relief.  

My question is can there be nerve damage from the initial surgery that is acting like a pinched nerve?  This seems to be getting critical and I am afraid we are loosing her.

thank you.
