scar leg
RE: Chronic anterior compartment syndrome
I had a rare form of compartment syndrome in that there was no pain, however I experienced all the other symptoms of compartment syndrome due to lack of blood flow. When ever I ran fast for a while I had problems lifting my toes off the ground, and would pretty much just lost control of my leg. I went through 6 years of running with this and was fine during cross country because of the uneven soft surface. I was referred to Doc. Turnipseed because he was one of the only doctors I was told who has treated this before, the only problem was my insurance wouldn't let me see him. A year earlier I went through one unecessary operation because they thought my peroneal nerve was the problem. The doc. I eventually saw did a great job with my second operation and removed all the fascia in my compartments. The leg has yet to bother me however I am still not totally positive that I will be fine once I get back in better shape. Has any one else heard of a case like this before?
