Not sure: Your friend needs to be re- examined by his/ her orthopedic surgeon. An ' answer' in this forum is pure speculation w/out examination of your friend.Calf pain could be due to gastroc. 'soreness', fluid leaking into the back of the knee post-operatively; blood clots is a more serious cause if calf pain. Have him see his/ her ors or go to the E.R. If pain is worsening. Best of luck!
