IT IS NOW FEB24TH AND I STILL CAN NOT WALK ON MY LEFT LEG. MY LEG WAS IN THE HARD CAST WITH NO WEIGHT BEARING FOR 5 MONTHS. WHEN CAST CAME OFF I WAS TOE TOUCH WEIGHT BEARING THEN PROGRESSED TO PARTIAL DUE TO AGE 53 AND NO CALCIUM PRODUCTION. I ALSO HAVE OSTEOARTHRITIS. WHEN CAST WAS REMOVED ALL JOINTS WERE FROZEN . I EXERCISED THROUGH THE PAIN TO GET ROM BACK AND SLOWLY PROGRESSED WITH MORE WEIGHT BEARING. WHILE IN CAST MY MUSCLE MASS DECREASED TO ALMOST NOTHING.OVER THE PAST MONTH I HAVE NOTICED THAT I HAVE A BULGED AREA ON THE LATERAL ANTERIOR ASPECT OF MY BAD LEG THAT GETS WARM TO TOUCH AND CASES A GREAT DEAL OF BURNING PAIN THAT SHOOTS UP MY SHIN WITH AMBULATION. BY THE AFTERNOON I CAN NOT EVEN LIFT MY LEG WITHOUT EXCRUTIAING PAIN.COULD YOU PLEASE TELL ME WHAT MIGHT BE GOING ON. I ALSO NEED SOME EXERCISE TO STRENGTHEN MY CALF AND THIGH MUSCLES . PLEASE HELP.
