I can't get a break!!

Post  f250mike on May 4th 2014, 12:52 am

I found out last week My right bicep tendon is torn and needs repaired.
Surgery is set for May 15th.
I guess my 95 ranger bbf project is on hold for awhile Sad 
The Dr. says I have a 0lb weight restriction for 12 weeks after surgery. Strength therapy will follow that.
How do you old guys keep fit and still build race cars??? Very Happy

Dang that's a weird deal. I can't believe that takes so long to heal. Wish we were closer, I'd work on that Ranger for you anytime. Hope it all comes together bud. Keep us updated as you can, and know you and the family are in our prayers.

I know how you feel. I had surgery to fix a ruptured elbow tendon last year. I was off full duties at work for five months. My advise is to do exactly what your surgeon and therapist tell you to do, especially the exercise program you'll get.

X2 Check out your surgeon thoroughly. I had my right rotator cuff done and it had to be done twice, the first guy butchered it and the repair fell apart.

Torn Bicep

Post  STR-LGL-70 on May 4th 2014, 5:25 pm

Mike,
Sorry to hear about your arm, I suspect mine is torn on my left arm. I have an appointment tomorrow AM to get my MRI results.
How long ago did you tear yours? From what I read online after a few weeks it becomes more difficult to repair; mine was around the 7th or 9th of last month and seems like it's taking too long to get to this point.
Thanks, Sheldon

Thanks guys, I hope all goes well.
I have a distal biceps tendon tear just proximal to it's attachment to the radial tuberosity.
In non medical terms, my bicep tendon is torn where it hooks up on the inside of my elbow.
Stephen, My deal sounds real similar to yours. I plan on doing exactly what they tell me.
MikeR, I have done my homework on the surgeon. He has been doing this surgery since 1996 and only 2 cases where the patient had to have a second surgery.
Sheldon, It's been bothering me since last October and I put it off until January. I now don't recommend this Sad 
Harold and Maverick I hope this BBF stuff is still fun when I get your ages.

Yep, that's exactly what I had. I now have two little bits of titanium to keep it all together. The exercise program was not a big deal, but it was stressed to me the importance of doing the stretching routine.

Keith, let me know when you have some done, I'll take one for each side. My left shoulder has been hurting for a while now and I don't want to go to the doctor, putting off the inevitable.

Faubion is strong enough to support a big tire truck sitting on his ribs when it rolled off the scales. Must be all that diesel work
