Foot Pain after C Section
I had a polio attack when i am 3 yrs Old and my right leg has been paralyzed and I am using caliper for mobility purpose. I have delivered my second baby 50 days back through c section.3 surgeries were done at a single instance - Appendicitis removal, C Section and a Family planning. And after a week I started getting pain in my legs. Initially, it is started in right leg after some days I got pain in right leg as well. I usually feel the pain in the foot and haven't felt any pain in leg and calf. Pain will be bearable. But over last 3 days, i am getting a pain in my toes and all my finger joints (in toes) are paining a lot. I am not seeing much swelling but I could feel pin and needles and also a burning sensation sometimes. The pain is more in my right foot. I have taken blood test uric acid is 5.3, RA factor is 10.6 and ESR is 85. Should I be worried about Arthritis? One of my relatives told that this pain could be of an infection happened after surgery. Need your advice here.

The ESR is elevated. This could be normal post surgery. Since pain is for a few days only, you can try some OTC pain killers. However if it does not reduce then you’ll need a thorough clinical examination.

Please visit an orthopedic surgeon.

Hello. Ur blood parameters are fine. By ur description u may be having some neuralgic pain due to irritation of some nerves of legs around ur pelvis or back. Most if the times these pains settle of its own , u may try tab neurobion forte for 15 days or so n apply some gel/ spray over ur foot. Take lots of water and calcium rich food and expose urself to adequate sunlight. Visit hospital if problems persists or increases. Best wishes
