I have always had extremely tight hamstrings. Not marginally tight--freakishly tight. 10 days after my surgery, the PA told me I could stretch my hamstrings. I did and probably went too far. Ever since then (8 weeks out), I have hamstring pain (feels like they are being severely stretched) many times when I stand in one place--relieved (thankfully) when I sit or lay down. I have been working on stretching them gently the past couple of weeks, I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. It is enough to push you over the edge when you are battling the back pain, then the nerve pain, AND the hamstring pain. Should I just keep stretching? Could I be exasperating the leg nerve pain? Stretching the hamstrings relieves my back pain--it did pre-surgery as well.
