I had RNY on 3/15 and since then I have developed a numbness in my left forearm that runs down to my pinkie and ring fingers.  I have the same numbness in my right thigh from my hip to my knee.  Anyone know what this is from?

 Have you ever had numbness before?  I get numbness in my left thigh sometimes but it is from a pinched nerve in my back.  Maybe during the surgery and all of the laying around later you have pinched a nerve?  I am by no means a medical professional.  Have you talked to your doctor about it?

 Just wanted to add that I agree, you may want to talk to a healthcare professional about the numbness you are experiencing! I hope it subsides soon for you!

Thanks for the responses, I have 2 week post op appointment on Tuesday.  I'll follow up with my surgeon.  I suppose it could be a pinched nerve but I don't have any aches or pains anywhere else.
