What does pain behind the knee and calf indicate?

Yes, hello how are you this evening? My question is I had a fem-pop bypass done about three yes ago before multiple stents in both legs were placed so many I have lost count. At this this I m 45 on diagnosis 41. Anyways I have done very good after the bypass but, today I was just cleaning house nd was just standing still speaking with someone when a very bad pain hit me kind of behind knee into calf is still hurting a few hours now. but let me say its not same pain that got me diagnosed but more like the pain I had when first stent clotted. should I be concerned right now or wait and see

Hello,

If you have such a bad history, then you should be extra careful as it may be due to clot in a normal vein or in the stent. You need proper evaluation by doctor and color Doppler study.


Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Varinder Joshi
