Most important thing is to rule out DVT. If you had not been moving around using your operated leg this can cause DVT. To rule out DVT you nerd a clinician help. As well as Doppler scans. Next possibility is mere tightness postoperative. Needs regular Physio sessions to stretches of gastroc and peroneal muscle strengthening. Once after stretches use cold fomentation to relieve the muscle soreness.
