Gastroc Slide Help- Please
I had a gastroc recession (aka slide, lengthening, etc) about 7 weeks ago. I've healed quite well and am experiencing very little pain. Some cramping/soreness occassionally, but not bad at all. I saw the doctor 2 weeks ago and he said the incision looks good, flexibility is great, and to just keep working on strengthening it as its still pretty weak. He said still no running, but biking was ok, and some elliptical should be ok. Yesterday I biked for 15 minutes and did the elliptical for 5 minutes... both very lightly, and all of a sudden I'm noticing a slight bulge just below my incision, slightly to the inside of my leg. Its about the size (width) of a raquetball. It doesn't hurt, but feels hard/tight and then very soft/loose right above it, almost caving in a little bit. I'm calling the surgeon tomorrow but being an hour and a half away I dont know when the soonest I can see him is. Does anyone have any advice/comments/etc?????? He did mention prior to surgery that muscle budging was a side effect/risk, but said not to really be concerned about it. I'm freaking out here.
