Likely to be due to nerve root compression
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The abscess on your colon is not related to the numbness
of the legs and feet.
It is suggestive of a neural ( nerve compression or nerve irritation
related) cause. This can be diagnosed by the X-ray and MRI scan of lower spine. The nerve involvement symptoms may be there due to soft tissue
swelling or due to inflammation in the nerve itself.
These neural pains are a challenging thing to treat as careful examination is needed to ascertain the level of nerve involvement. You can take some anti-inflammatory pain killer like acetaminophen
till you consult your neurophysician.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
