so today my training partner did something stupid and as a result there was a sickening ‘pop’ and his left pec partially tore luckily there were 3 of us around the bench and took the bar off him almost immediately.
anyways his rather sore and really pissed, started to really hurt when i got to his place to drop him off. It’s still attached but looks wrong just looking at it front on in a shirt.
basically from my first aid training, i’ve got him iceing it for 15min every hour on the hour, told him to get some nurofen in him and to get to the doc tomoz.
is there anything else he can do immediately??
i mean what’s the doc going to do anyway, refer him if he needs surgery? its not gonna happen tomorrow.
has anyone else gone through this?
how did you treat it?
how long were you out?
please note he is defineatley going to the doc. i just want some preliminary help and possibly some good news (re rehab/ down time) for him in the mean time.
thanks in advance.
