Our expert says:
I am sorry to hear that you have torn your inner calf muscle and that you will be out of commission for 6 weeks. If you are already eating a balanced diet that contains 2-3 servings of high quality protein (lean meat, fish, eggs, milk and dairy products, or legumes) and plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, which are rich in protective nutrients, you will not need to take additional supplements, etc. The human body needs time to heal and it would be dangerous to force yourself to become active before you are declared fit by your orthopaedic surgeon.
