I have dull pain under of my left leg above the knee and outside of my leg just below the knee - bottom of my foot is numb and Achilles tendon is sore. Physio thinks stretched nerve - healing time?

In brief: variable

Your symptoms do suggest a nerve stretch injury.
To be sure get examined by an ors. Nerve 'stretch' injuries can improve w/in weeks but sometimes take months!

In brief: see a neurologist

It could be pathology of peroneal nerve or sciatic nerve.
Ncv/emg test would help.
