I had a surgery in Finland by Sakari Orava (the same surgeon who did David Beckham's Achilles), where can I find stories, anecdotes, data, or anything about people who have had the exact same, or very similar surgeries, (on both legs at the same time is even better) I want to gain any information I can on prognosis, anecdotes, struggles, pitfalls, success rates, etc.

My details are: "The patient has long suffered from bilateral posterior femoral pain. He was in bilateral hamstring syndrome in December 2011. After that on right side recurrent muscle injuries occurred with consecutive adhesion and neofascia growth. Milder on left side too. He became unable to practice any sports. In MRI small muscle lesion sites were seen superficially and inside right hamstring muscles. Thickened fascia covering the muscle, in surgery tight hypertrophic adhesions and neofascia over the middle and distal hamstring was found on the right side, adhesions were removed and fascia excised. superficial longitudinal scar in the biceps muscle was seen and scar excised. On the left side changes were minor and in muscles no scarring could be seen. same procedure was done on left side also.
