Muscle detachment in leg resulting in lump on thigh
Can you advise. As a result of kicking a football 8 weeks ago I have now got atear at the distalrectus femoris musculotendious junction with a gap measuring 7.6 cm. I have no pain and full movement . The doctor tells me that I can live with this but will always have a lump on my leg or have surgery. What is the advantage and disadvantages of each option . What is the recovery time. One doctor stated 2 weeks ! Thanks Barry
