Follow up : With your surgeon, let them know your condition. Be patient but concerned. 2 weeks post- op is still considered part of the healing time.

Give it time!: 2 weeks was yesterday so to speak. Right now please give it time. The surgery is done, right or wrong, but the best thing to do now is give it time. Making rash move in the post op period can be dangerous. In the future get on an aggressive calf stretching program.

Try physical therapy: Physical therapy may be of benefit for you. Discuss it with your surgeon and get the appropriate referral.
