Healed up great, thanks for asking. I got hooked up by a buddy who’s an ortho PA - the day after I got home I was in an ortho’s office and had surgery the same day (almost a week to the day after the tear). Had full extension a week later when they took the splint off, but took a while to get full flexion due to scar tissue. My PA buddy was amazed at how fast I broke up the scar tissue.
Managed to work around it and stay in the gym throughout my recovery, so I didn’t lose much strength aside from the arm (obviously). I had front squatted 405 a few days before the injury, and did it again 3-4 weeks after being cleared for full activity.
I was doing some lifting with the arm before I was cleared (light rowing, paying attention to any pain or even discomfort). The two biggest factors in my recovery (IMHO) were having surgery as quickly after the tear as I did, and I injected 2iu/day HGH until I ran out (about 50 days out of my 12 week ‘light duty’) - didn’t tell the surgeon about that (told my buddy though).
I’m a year post-op now, and that bicep will always look different - according to the surgeon, the reattaching is a guessing game as far as how much tendon to pull through and anchor, so that bicep head sits a little higher than the other.
