    Distal Bicep Tear

    99% sure I have distal bicep tear in left arm. Saturday did legs, started doing preacher curls for the gurls afterwards. Worked up from 5-25lbs on each side over the course of about 10 minutes doing 5-7 reps. Once I loaded 25 on each side, as soon as I picked it up I felt something weird, immediately dropped it and left the gym and went to ER. They took x-rays and said they couldn't tell what it was, put me in a sling. I went to an ortho doc on Monday and she looked at it and goes "yeah it's ruptured, your distal bicep" but then went on to say "well I can't tell by just looking at it, schedule a MRI" (she was pretty useless). I get MRI done yesterday.

    Friday I'm meeting with a specialist from the same practice that supposedly has like 25+ years experience with these types of injuries to go over the next steps and the MRI. I'm assuming he's going to recommend surgery based on the fact that it's like 99% chance a full tear (bicep in left arm doesn't move when I rotate my forearm and it's sitting a full inch higher up than my right bicep).

    What should I expect in terms of surgery and recovery? I'm a police officer (first line supervisor) but I need my arm ASAP. In the mean time, should I keep my arm in a sling? Should I be fully extending it occasionally? I didn't get very clear answers from the first doctor - she was terrible and just there to set me up for the MRI. Can anyone walk me through what to expect Friday or what he's going to be able to tell me from the MRI?

    Never had that but you ain't gonna have use of that arm for months. Does your department have light duty assignments so you can work while recovering? That's what I'm currently on while in the same situation (first line supervisor, recovering from shoulder surgery).

    f***. Yeah, they do fortunately. It's just a matter of getting approved for it as they don't have to. It's also a pay cut as I lose particular benefits like "pre-shift" among other things.

    Surgery today. Hurts like a btch. Follow up in 10 days to remove cast. Had one serving of collagen hydrolysate today as they said protien and such helps the recovery go better. I'll keep this thread updated.

    Plan on doing 1 mile walk and some bodyweight squats tomorrow.

    Damn a bicep tear? How much were you curling? Did you go for a PR or did it just somehow happen? Weird.
    Thought most bicep tears would happen on deadlifts or rows with an underhand grip. Or trying a PR on curls way above your normal weight.
    Good luck on recovery.
