This site is intended to be a patient’s guide to recuperating after proximal hamstring surgery.  It is based on my own experience, and I have learned many things along the way.  I include tips for getting around, questions you should ask, answers that you should expect, items you’ll need to buy, methods for coping, and methodologies I’ve discovered for safely improving passive range of motion of unaffected limbs.
