Surgical operation done on tendon on my arm 5 months ago. Should the arm be just as strong as the other side?

Surgical operation done on tendon on my arm 5 months ago. Should the arm be just as strong as the other side?

Not always: Quite a few things play a role in achieving strength. Which tendon (hand vs biceps vs rotator cuff- the more proximal tend to take longer to recover). How long you had to protect it before starting rehab, and (brace yourself) whether you did your exercises as dilligently as you were supposed to. I'd talk with the surgeon who did the repair and ask this same question. Get a second opinion if unsure. ...Read more

I had lateral epicondylar release with tendon repair 7 months ago & when my arm get cold it hurts until i get it warmed up. Is that normal?

Unusual but possible: Tennis elbow surgery – lateral epicondylitis release and repair, is commonly associated with a protracted time to recover. At seven months though, i would expect most soft tissue changes from surgery to have recovered and remodeled. Pain associated with hypothermia suggests relative poor circulation to the tissue that improves with heat and revascularization; frictional rubbing helps with both. ...Read more
