  • My ruptured bicep repair

    Hope everyone is well.

    So in 2017 I tore my long head muscle belly down from the tendon.

    when the bruising went went down a big gap appeared as the mass of the upper part slid down the arm.

    well today I had surgery

    the surgeon cut the tendon so that he could drag the muscle belly up towards the shoulder and fill in the gap a load more.

    see attached pics, one one today pre op, the other now a few hours after. I’ll keep a log

    Shit I didn't realize you did that back in 2017. I thought the injury was recent.

      You Tony X Man Freeman had his pec repaired years after a bad tear. Contrary to popular opinion you can get these things fixed years later, to whatever extent.

      anyway I’m hopeful of a good result I think
      the surgery went well

            I'm curious about this as well. I always hear about tendons, rotator cuff a, knees, etc when guys are lifting really heavy for them. But stuff like a bicep tear or pec tear scares me. I don't lift that heavy at all (for me) because I'm after that big squeeze and stretch in the muscle I'm training but also because I want to try to avoid injuries also. How did you injure yourself Mr I?
