How To Treat Burning After Leg Surgery?

Had a broken leg (both bones below the knee where broken) surgery four weeks ago had to put medal and bolts to put it back together.. About two weeks ago started having my leg burning just below my knee to my angle. It is so sever at times that I can t stand for anything to touch it. Am taking Neurontin 300mg twice a day and also percocet 10mg twice a day. Am rubbing it down with blue-emu three to four times a days. So far I have not got any relief from it.

Hi,

I would strongly suggest that you schedule an emergency consultation with a doctor to rule out any neurovascular deficit developing in the limb and would be particularly concerned about a deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. John Chacko, Orthopedic Surgeon
