Bicep Tendon Rupture Recovery Time
I'm having constant pain in my bicep tendon. I've agrivated it before but it would go away after resting it for week or so. This is going on amonth.
Torn tendon?: You may have a torn biceps tendon. See an orthopedic surgeon for an evaluation.See 1 more doctor answer
Usually: I can tell you from personal experience that 4-12 weeks. 12 weeks for full all out recovery.See 1 more doctor answer
5 months: Distal biceps ruptures need to be repaired surgically. If done well, gentle range of motion exercises are begun early, using the arm gently for 3 months. At the 3 months junction normal use without lifting or stress, if everything goes well, normal use and stressat five months.See 1 more doctor answer
Protection: There are two tendons if one ruptures then you will have a weakness in that arm from now on. Surgical replacement of the ruptured tendon is sometimes possible and you should see an orthopedic surgeon for this. Gradually and slowly strengthing the remaining tendon with low weight exercises may help prevent its rupture in the future. Always avoid lifting very heavy objects to prevent rupture.See 1 more doctor answer
Be careful: I am assuming you had surgery, if this is the case be very careful because depending where you are in the healing process the exercises will be different. Speak to your surgeon.
Weakness: Acutely pain and swelling with some bruising. Patient will have significant weakness of supination of the forearm and some loss of elbow flexion strength. You may see the biceps retract proximally and bunch up in the upper arm, especially with attempted use. This is a surgical problem see a hand surgeon as soon as possible.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends: If biceps torn proximal in shoulder, would leave alone. Shouldn't anticipate significant functional loss, but may have popeye deformity. If distal, repair not likely. Reconstruction with some sort of interposition graft required. Many patients report improved pain with function, but does not correct deformity, and strength improvements less predictable. Tough problem to have. Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer
See an upper ex spec: A six month old proximal bicep reptile can be ignored or fixed by an upper extremity specialist. The distal biceps rupture is a more difficult problem and you need to find someone who has performed tendon grafts.
Could I have torn my rotator cuff at the same time as a distal bicep tendon rupture? I had surgery for the rupture, now need MRI for the shoulder
Unlikely: A ruptured biceps tendon@ the elbow is usually known... Eccentric contraction of the muscle w/ a feeling of a ' pop' or tear is commonplace. Rotator cuff tears occurring @ the same time is conceivable but very unlikely. More likely you had a rct already and was 'picked up' by your ors @ exam/mri. The "long head" of the biceps in the shoulder can tear in chronic rot. Cuff tears. Gl!
I'm 24 years old my left distal bicep tendon rupture popeye about a year ago I lost strength in my left arm with surgery will I regain my strength?
You could: Tendon needs reattachment other wise will not improve strength and also can develop atrophy see an orthopedic doc.See 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: Prolozone causes repair and tightening of the lax structures, partially torn connective tissue and ligaments. Prolozone halts the pain/inflammation cycle. This allows for better circulation, increased blood flow carrying nutrition, and hydration of the damaged tissues. This allows for a healing environment within the joint to develop and results in increased range of motion and decreased pain.
Need surgery: Biceps tendon dose not heal without surgery, also slap tear.See 1 more doctor answer
I had small partially ruptured biceps tendon, MRI after a year: subakromio-subdeltoidni burzitis. Can I carry around 5-10kg backpack with this injury?
Yes: Carrying a backpack on your shoulder should not cause a problem with the biceps tendon, although the act of bringing it up onto your shoulder might. I would not hesitate to discuss the specifics of your case with your orthopedist.
Just had distal bicep tendon rupture surgery, any type of supplements that will help or speed up my recovery?
Make sure: You are eating healthy and staying hydrated. Give it time. Don't rush it.
Severe: Pain, sweling, unable to point toes downward. Often hear or feel a loud pop. Extreme difficulty or inability to walk.See 2 more doctor answers
Patellar tendon: Repair of the patella tendon (pt) requires an incision in front of the knee. The tendon typically pulls away from the inferior pole of patella. Vertical drill holes made from inferior to superior patella. Stitches are placed through pt, passed through dril holes, and tied over top of patella.See 1 more doctor answer
