Leg Pain and Blood Clots After Surgery

2 weeks post knee surgery and I've been experiencing what I can only describe as strained leg from my hamstring to my Achilles. 2 days ago I was on the emergency room due to my nurse suggesting I have exams to rule out blood clots, exams were negative. They did not explain anything and just sent me on my way. The doc attributed the feeling due to the fact that i'm limping when I walk. Should i still be worried about clots, or is that something i should let go and not worry about, given that the ultrasound showed nothing from ground to ankle.

Hello~I know this was posted over a month ago, how are you now, I hope better. Since the ultra-sound did not show a clot, I would not worry, quite possibly the pain could be due to favoring one leg over the other, thus putting more strain on it. It could also be due to a pinched nerve in your back. If you are still having this issue, I suggest seeing a chiropractor, possibly some adjustments might help clear up the pain. The chiropractor will take an x-ray of your lower back first however, discuss the results and then the treatment plan.

I hope you feel better soon.
