Chronic calf injury
Hi, ive had a chronic calf injury for 4 years im a middle distance runner aged 20 running 35 – 40 miles per week. My injury has been diagnosed as a sural nerve entrapment and after months of physio its not fully recovered. ive now been told that to fix this problem i need an explority operation in my lower calf to remove any scar tissue and fiborous bands that have formed over the years and to untapped the sural nerve if it is trapped.
Do you think that an explority operation is a sensible option even though they cant pinpoint where the nerve is compressed and if it will definately fix the injury?
