    Don't know what his problem is. Maybe he's been sued, or maybe he really just can't afford a game of bowling because of "people like me".

    I've been to three therapy sessions so far. I'm happy to say they are helping. The treating doctor ordered PT four times a week for two weeks, three times for 3 weeks, twice a week for three weeks, and once a week for three weeks. For right now, they have me on TENS therapy, ultrasound, and massage. That TENS treatment with a warm pack feels great. The muscle massage to finish each session is something I really don't look forward to.
    I have a feeling stretching is going to be in the near future and that I am dreading.
    I'm thinking about getting a portable TENS/EMS Unit. I can just leave the electrodes on during the work day and use it any time I feel discomfort.....which is like the whole day.

    I get the sense that you look like you have a very punchable face.

    This bruising is spreading as expected. The good news is I am able to carefully walk a little without the crutches.

    You should swap user names with him.

    So I've been going to physical therapy and doctor follow ups. I'm off of crutches, and walking very cautiously. If I do anything that stretches or contracts the hamstring, I get a painful wake up call from the hamstring telling me not to do that. The bruising is subsiding in the hamstring but has spread to my calf. There is still swelling and there is constant pressure from my glutes down my hamstring to the backside of my knee. It's been very uncomfortable to be at work, and I can't seem to ever get comfortable sitting at work or at home.

    I can't believe it's only been three weeks since this happened. It seems like so much longer. The good news is I'm able to walk around normally as long as I don't overextend my stride. However, I still can't do anything that causes me to use use or stretch the hamstring. I'm still going to therapy 3x per week and it still consists of TENS therapy, ultrasound, and percussion massage. No stretching or strengthening yet. I was told by the therapist that the doc may have to order an MRI.

    The bad news is that that constant pressure is still there from my glutes to the back of my knee. While the therapy does a good job of pain relief on my hamstring, that pressure is pretty much always there when I sit down. I'm sitting at my desk right now and I'm definitely aware of it. I'll make sure I point that out to the doc next time he sees me though.

    I never realized how slow the healing process is on muscles. I've come to realize that just because I'm healing and can walk normally does not mean I'm healed.
