Let me start by saying for give the length of my post, but I feel I need to give some background. In December of 2010, I woke up with excruciating pain in my shoulder. I took a couple of weeks off after trying to workout, but I could not endure the pain. Finally when the pain was gone I was working out and I noticed that when I did triceps pushdowns I could feel a clicking in the superior, anterior part of my shoulder. Prior to the injury this never happened. About two months later I really damaged my shoulder benching.
Doctor decided to scope it and he found a bankhart legion detached anterior labrum, and an 80% torn Biceps tendon.
He repaired everything and then performed a biceps tenodesis. This was all done back in June 2011. I finally started working out again and that Goddamn clicking in my shoulder is still there, and I am convinced it is from the the absence of an intact biceps tendon. I think this was the source prior to surgery, and since it was not actually repaired, but rather cut and translocated.
I would never have allowed my MD to do this prior to surgery, but we didn’t know about it prior to surgery. Its my theory that the lack of an intact Biceps tendon led to the instability that caused me to further injure the shoulder, and now that it’s repaired the lack of any biceps at all will simply lead to another injury. I already feel the superior migration with crepitis and downward clunking when I get beyond 90 degrees of overhead lifting, and of course the clicking with certain movements.
Is anyone else having this problem? And are there any doctors out there that actually reconstruct the long head biceps tendon rather than obliterate it. This is depressing the shit out of me. I haven’t had a meaningful training session in 10 months!, and I’m afraid I will be injured again if I start hitting the weights the way I want to. I would travel to anywhere in the country to get this thing fixed the right way.
