Inside of thigh numb
« on: July 10, 2017, 09:17:31 PM »
I had OATS surgery seven weeks ago and a strip of skin from the inside of my knee all the way to my groin is numb. The doctor thinks it was the femoral nerve block and that it "should" get better. It is not getting better. Has anyone else had this? Does it get better?

I had a femoral nerve block in April of 2014 during an arthroscopic LOA.  There are parts of my thigh and knee that are still numb today.
