The case involves a young adolescent who suffered complications from a severe ear infection that caused hearing loss in her left ear. Subsequently, she underwent a left cochlear implant surgery to resolve her condition. Immediately following the surgery, the patient suffered severe pain in her left thigh and a blood clot was ruled out by ultrasound. The following day, the patient was seen by a neurologist, who noted spasm and tenderness to palpation in the left thigh. The patient saw another neurologist who noted in her exam that the patient still suffered from ongoing pain, despite being prescribed a pain medication. The patient underwent multiple examinations, but none were successful in determining the cause. After 6 months, the pain persisted. Upon contacting the surgeon who completed the implant, the position the patient was in during the procedure, could have placed the left lateral femoral nerve at risk of compression.
