Jay Jay, the pain is only when I am engaging the muscle to both bend and lift my leg at the same time. And yes, it is right over the area where the doctor made an incision and operated and I think right over where the hardware is. The reason he thought it was hamstring is because it is also right where the hamstring muscle attaches to the tibia. Anyway, maybe I cam boring you with these details but I will talk to a different PT tomorrow and I hope to get some answers. I am glad you are getting help from the nurse to be your advocate. Its really important to have someone willing to do that.
