What causes numbness in leg when suffering from parosteal osteosarcoma?

I was dx w/ a parosteal osteosarcoma last Dec. In Jan my doctor performed a wide section reconstruction of the left femur. Not 7 months post op, I noticed a small area on the lower part of that leg is numb. Is it related? Could it be nerve damage? Or could in be something so unrelated like MS?

Hello

Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

Thank you for providing the brief history.

What I understand by history is this is due to post surgery affect. It can definitely not be MS as there is no connected symptoms associated with this sarcoma.

Regarding nerve injury I feel the location of the sarcoma should be known before giving a conclusion. As numbeness can be possible if the nerve gets irritated due to any factor.

Having it checked by the operating surgeon will be a good choice to look upon.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Regards
