As I understand if you keep damaging the same scar tissue you may get calcifications like me. My advice would be dont perservere if it sore, everyone kept saying to me just run if it doesnt stop you in your tracks it will be fine.
The doctor (sports orthapaedic) said massage would be a waste of time, I spoke to my massage therapist (who never noticed when massaging my quad 50 x) also said it couldnt be broken down because it had been neglected for too long, (HELLLOOOO!!!)
I totally agree about getting the right person, I knew that I had never found the right person I knew that I still had to meet them, but sadly it seems too late.
For sure whatever caused it (i think it is a gait issue) still exists, even if the scar tissue magically disappeared overnight the root cause would still be there.
My other leg (without the calcification) is very tight in hamstring as is my hip, I think whatever is causing this needs to be rectified because i believe its making me come down harder on my injured leg. Everyone who sees me run says there is nothing noticable though.
Thanks for your advice anyway, I have decided I am going to give it three more months (that will be two years injured) before I give up. I have not made any progress in this time whatsoever.
Doctor said surgery is likely to cause as much if not more scarring than is already there. I have taken advice from two physios in the last couple of days and both have suggested "trying" ESWT treatment which is supposed to break down the calcification.
Apparently another violenty expensive option is to get (Platelet) stem cell injections into the area.
The MRI said it had fat on the scar and the doctor said thats a good thing, you can tell the body is still trying to fix that area. I cant imagine that after two years its going to fix itself.
I am so annoyed, I have spent so much money on seeing people and nobody came up with this, infact when I suggested MRI more than a year ago nobody would refer me saying nothing would show up!
