Post operative problems

My OH underwent surgery in April for removal of a fibroadenoma. Since then, however, she has suffered with tingling/numbness from her feet up to her stomach.


Her doctor has told her this is not unexpected and it could take up to 6 months for the feeling to return. Blodd tests have been carried out and the results have come back normal. She has now been referred for a neurological examination which has scared her as she worries now that she may have MS.


Could anybody let us know if they have experienced anything similar following surgery and what the outcome was.
