Calf muscle tear
I am 39 and very active. Last week I tore my calf muscle playing tennis. The doctor was vague about my recovery and basically said “it will get better”. I was told that I could do things per comfort level. I spent 5 days in a wheel chair/crutches. I am now hobbling without any crutches, but the leg is becoming sore to the touch. How do I know if I am doing damage? What is the typical healing process? Should I expect bruising? Is any more pain an indicator of something bad? Please HELP!!
