Can a partial tear of the distal bicep tendon cause pain in my forearm, wrist and make my fingers cramp. My injury happened 3 weeks ago.?
Depends: Near the distal biceps is the median nerve. Injury to that area can potentially injure that nerve or swelling puts pressure on that nerve. A test called emg/ncv can identify how well that nerve is functioning and help determine the cause. Stop at your local physical medicine and rehab or neurologist doctors office for more details. ...Read more
I have a full thickness tear in shoulder and a partial tear in bicep tendon. Is surgery my best option? Have had this for 5 months.
Yes: I presume its a full thickness rotator cuff tear. Its a bit uncommon in your age group. However, if the diagnosis is based on a good physical exam, and it correlates to MRI findings, its probably the correct diagnosis. Treatment depends on tear configuration, but the natural history of rc tears is to become larger. Some balanced tears do well with pt. If pt hasn't helped, then rc repair is the best option. Its done arthroscopically, takes about 1.5hrs, and is out patient. Full healing takes 4-6months. For the biceps, its usually a significant pain generator, and should be addressed with tenodesis (reattach to humerus) or tenotomy (release). The choice depends on activity level and other factors. Tenotomy is the least invasive, and has excellent results. Surgery is best done by a sports medicine trained orthopedist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

For instance, the number of changes you describe may be because of chronic untreated instability. Learn more: http://theshouldercenter.Com/shoulder-pain.Htm. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Tendectomy of bicep tendon on 2nd symptoms to scope previously repaired slap tear. Os found another tear & failed anchor. Did not repair tear. Future probs?
How do you feel?: It sounds like you had two surgeries - one slap repair and another one to remove a failed anchor and cut the biceps tendon (tenotomy). The one thing that some people who have a biceps tenotomy complain of is cramping in the biceps with forceful repetitive activity. Otherwise, people tend to feel better not worse after a painful biceps tendon becomes detached (surgery or on its own). M. ...Read more

Yes: 'slap' tears are labral( cartilage) tears that occur anterior ( in the front of) and posterior ( in the back of), the long head of the biceps tendon in the shoulder joint(hence: acronym slap).Some slap tears involve the biceps anchor itself( type 2) and can cause pain/ popping etc...
