ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I was a heathy 58 yr old ,140lb on no meds at all.who had a spinal fusion of the L-5 L-4 disk in dec 2016 for a right sciatica.
the surgery was done threw my stomach not my back.. after surgery my left groin and abdomen had blunt pain and my left leg hurt badly if I was to walk. my heart rate was 96/68 pulse 82 before surgery and it began to rise. after 17 months it was discovered that I had a compressed left femoral artery. by now my heart rate was 178/97 pulse 122. I went from a 5mil blood pressure pill to a 40mil to a 100mil I just eight months.
now nearly a year later I have high bp and pills dont work long, burning on the top of my left foot ,pain and swelling in between my big toe, pain in my left inner thigh, little hardened veins in my hip area, a large hardened artery in my left abdomen an increased pain in ab and leg If I walk any distance .I have had 4 MRIs, 4 CT scans and three surgeons later ( drum role)my diagnose is chronic pain i try to stay humorous about all of this but I feel that my time is running out QUIKLY. because it is worsening by the week thanks everybody
