Because I suffered from fairly severe left-leg pain for years before going through with surgery, my muscles are incredibly stiff, particularly my calf, buttocks, and hamstring. I'm only 11 days past my surgery, but I was really hoping to finally get some muscle relief. I've tried some very simple calf and hamstring stretches and they seem to be firing off nerve pain that I wasn't really expecting. is it strange that this is happening? Anyone else feeling unsuccessful with stretching?
