Unable To Walk And Stand For More Than 5 Minutes Accompanied By Lumbago?
, I was 59 years old and had had a thigh bone surgery in May 2017 due to a road accident. The last operation to remove the implant / fen was done in June 2018. Because some of the bone was destroyed, the length of my femur was reduced by 3 cm. At first I had no problems with my legs, but starting in September 2019, I couldn’t stand up and walk for more than 5 minutes. Kmd since 3 days ago I also started lumbago when I wake up. Does this have something to do with my bones or is this another disease that has nothing to do with bones. I should see what kind of specialist doctor. Please explain doctor. Thank you.
Thank you for the question.
Asymmetrical length of the thigh bone, including because of a history of broken bones, can indeed make you more prone to aches, tingling, and pain, which not only occur in the thigh area, but can also extend to the waist, spine, and other areas around it. Aside from the previous history of broken bones, pain in your waist can also occur due to other effects, for example:
Joint, muscle, bone, and other supporting tissue disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, nerve clamps, muscle cramps, diabetic neuropathy
Internal organ disorders, such as stones or kidney infections, cystitis, bladder stones, ovarian cysts, myomas, endometriosis, pelvic inflammation, intestinal obstruction, intestinal inflammation, digestive infections, peritonitis, prostate disorders
Psychological disorders, such as due to excessive anxiety, somatoform disorders, and so on
Your condition needs to be examined directly by a doctor or neurologist. Usually, quite severe hip pain will be evaluated by a neurological examination doctor, X-ray, CT scan, urine test, ultrasound, and other supporting tests according to the doctor's suspicion of the type of disease. If the cause of your condition is mainly due to the asymmetrical length of your thighs, your doctor may refer you to an orthopedic surgeon for further treatment.
At this time, you can do it first:
Limit excessive physical activity, such as standing or running far away
When it hurts, compress your waist with warm water, or apply a warm cream
Do not carelessly massage the aching waist
Drink plenty of water
Don't like to hold back urination
Regularly exercising, especially ankle and waist sports, such as sit ups, yoga, swimming
Wear comfortable footwear and pants when doing activities
Hope this helps ...
