I think it's time for a second opinion. Did you first consult a physician - or did you go straight to a Physio? In the States we normally have to have a referral to one from a physician - but it may be different in the UK.
I'd want documented "proof" of the DX (Diagnosis). A CT or MRI, whichever your physician deems best in your case will give the right DX.
You've certainly given this enough time to heal under the care of your Physio. The fact that it's getting worse - and not even holding it's own - certainly says something different needs to be done. I'd do this soon to avoid permanent damage to the area.
Good luck and please let us know how you are doing.
Thanks for your reply.
Ive finally managed to see my family doctor who really didnt have a clue but has referred me to there physio who used to be a dr. My dr hadnt got a clue what the soleous muscle was.
Ive been given some gel to rub on as no tablets were touching it.
Got a few weeks to wait.
UPDATE- got a cancellation apt for physio and she thinks its a partial rupture - might need an operation
I'm sorry to hear that you may be facing surgery. However I am glad that you have a DX.
I'm tardy with my reply as I've been on vacation. I do appreciate the fact that you've been so kind to let us know how you are doing. That's important to us. I hope you'll continue to do so - and I wish you the very best.
Best of Luck,
