Hello
No
A diffuse neuropathy would not be caused by this.

What does your neurologist say?

I had a hip replacement in Feb ,2015 and the next day my right leg was num from lower back and rt cheek of buttocks down my leg front and back of thigh, my calf to my foot all the way tonight toe. My neurologist sent me to a pain clinic without even a follow up. Is it possible that emg was compromised because of right hip and leg problem
Expert:  DrRussMd replied 1 year ago.
No.
More likely this operation aggravated a problem in the lower spine, and nerve compression there.
If your prosthesis is compatible with an MRI scan, you need an MRI of the lower spine, even if the EMG is normal.
The operation would not compromise the EMG findings.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
