Hello,

Contused calf muscles take some time to recover completely. Some time this may take up to 3 weeks. After recovery you should have a support of physiotherapy to break adhesion between the healed muscle fibers and for normal movement at foot. You should not worry. You may apply a compression bandage from below upwards & start doing range of movement exercises at foot for further smooth recovery you may Consult to your physiotherapist.

Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mukesh Tiwari, Orthopedic Surgeon
