And I missed your last post with the update. Sorry for not reading further. My bad bro.
I tore mine about 3 years ago on a deadlift, It sucked bad. Ever tried wiping your ass with the opposite hand of the one you’ve used your whole life? It’s harder than it might sound lol. I never had surgery and it still doesn’t look the quiet same as before because it just kind of sits higher up on my arm but it I regained full use of it again within 3-4 months probably. Hopefully you don’t have a complete rupture and it’ll heal like mine did.
I'm at week 4 since injury, the reason it took so look to get looked at. Workman's comp is handling it, think they delay on purpose, I called and email so many times got crickets from them.And I missed your last post with the update. Sorry for not reading further. My bad bro.
It's a workman's comp injury, took me literally a month to get a MRI. Knowing it's a short window before it becomes permanent, decided to lawyer up.Hopefully you got health insurance? Go get treatment and proper diagnostic. I tore mine last year and was worried I'd have long 9 month recovering. As I'm old bastard now and can take long time , I got this treatment called " ionthoporesis " not many docs even know it exists so ask , but the doc prescribed a injectable corticosteroid, but NOT for injections! No I brought too physical therapy where they would saturate an electric pad with medication and electrical impulses would send medication directly into a specific muscle . In my case my left bicep. Two weeks healed !! It was incredible. Now I'm just careful and train obsessed over staying healthy
Here's my life for the next 6 weeks. Reattach bicep and rotator cuff tear.Well surgery tomorrow attached bicep and a torn rotator cup. Guess I'll have alot of posting the next few weeks!! Will take a couple of weeks off the some cardio. Looking at 3 months till slowly hitting the weights

The worse part is trying to sleep. Right now the lazy boy is the best option for me. Keeping my calories low, it could be so easy to get fat just sit around not doing nothing.
Did drive to the gym that in itself was a fuckin hassle. At first try the stationary bike, was too much movement on the arm it was killing me. So just went to the treadmill instead. Now it's no point going to the gym just for treadmill, we'll just walk around the neighborhood have a good pace.
2 weeks the bandages come off, but realistically won't be lifting weights on the right side three or four months
Be nice if your other arm was shortened 1.5" to match lol.Yeah me and my right side went downhill past couple of years. 1st with radial nerve damage and a disc replacement. Now this arm is a about 1 1/2 smaller after disc replacement. Now this... lol. Just look at it as a goal when it's all said and done. Back to my former self
