Hi, it is unlikely for the numbness to be related with surgery. This could be due to prolonged bed rest. Causes like sciatica, disc herniation, vascular insufficiency etc should be ruled out. How old are you?
I had appendectomy in Mar 2014 They went thru my navel and also area below my navel. I also have numbness in my right leg and at times a burning pain accompanies the numbness. These symptoms began 2 wks after the surgery. Prior to the surgery I never had this problem. It still persists as of Aug 2014. You can not convince me it is not related. MeiXue
Hello, I am feeling the same thing you are. I went through a laparoscopic surgery to remove my appendix and feel that same numbness. We may have Sciatica because the nerve was irritated during our surgery. We may have a legal case of malpractice if so.
