Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX will try to assist you with your medical question and any medical information you seek.
I'm sorry to hear this
When did this start?
Its been going on for a week now
Any redness or swelling?
a bit of swelling
Is the pain constant?
it only happens when i try to sleep at night
Do you take any medication?
Do you have any medical conditions?
bbypass, angina and im diabetic
You have those conditions and you don't take any medication?
sorry i thought you meant for the leg but yes i do take maedication for my angina and diabitis and for my prostate gland
can you hold on a second while i go and get it please
omeprazole,dispersible aspirin,finasteride,tamsulosin hydrochloride (prostate). Diabitis - gliclazide glucophage. clalestrohole - fluvastatin.
Does it only swell at night?
I can walk on it ok, it doesn't to do that but when i sleep it keeps me awake all night
I would advise you to have this examined, it may be due to venous incompetency
I think you may benefit from a test called a PVR to assess your veins in that leg
Are you there?
I had a vein taken out of my leg when i had the bypass and for the past 16 years its always been a bit tender but now when i lay down there is a dull ache there, can you give me an example of a PVR please
is it similar to an exray?
It is a test
it is not like an x ray
It is like an ultrasound
ok so would you recommend a visit to my local surgery so they can arrange that
Yes, that would be ideal
ok, also i have strained my abductor muscle and it keeps popping
would that have something to do with my lower leg hurting
No, I don't think that is related, it is likely separate
ok i just want to say thank you for your excellent advise and i hope you enjoy the rest of your day
You're quite welcome
I am happy I could help
