Knot on right leg with pain

07/27/2009

Question:

I had an heart attack 3 months ago, with in the last wek i notice that i have a knot on my lower right leg an it have a little pain.I had a stante put in an at the time the stante was put in I had a stroke on my right side. Could this knot have any thing to do with that. I also had triple bypass a week after the heart attack.

Answer:

You didn't mention if you had a vein removed from your leg for your bypass. If so, the knot could be from that. If it is painful, you should see your doctor and have it examined. Best of luck!
