Right thigh pain to touch

Posted 16 Oct 2021 at 10:14

4 weeks post RP procedure, all appears to be going well until pain in right thigh. Sore to touch but no aching during the day or night. Feels similar to muscle strain when walking (obviously not done anything strenuous post op to cause muscle strain).  The mind starts doing its usual things and thinks the worst. I have my first PSA reading in a couple of weeks and meeting with consultant. 
Any similar experiences out there?

It could be caused by nerves disturbed during surgery. I had pain at the top of my thigh and into the groin and was checked for DVT. I didn’t have a clot but they gave me a heparin injection just in case. I would get it checked if I were you, hopefully it’s nothing to worry about.

Ditto Ido4 probably disturbed during surgery 👍

Thanks Gents, had myself checked for DVT which was all clear fortunately. Will bring it up with the consultant in a couple of weeks.
