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 have been diagnosed with a damaged tendon in my shoulder but why is the pain mostly in my arm and so badly unbearable at night ?

I have been diagnosed with a damaged tendon in my shoulder but why is the pain mostly in my arm and so badly unbearable at night ?

Normal symptoms: This is typical for a tendon problem. The tendon is the end if a muscle where it connects to the bone. If it is torn the pain often follows the course of the muscle. Pain also often radiates away from the center of the body in the pattern you describe. If the pain is severe talk to your doctor about treatment options. ...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

3 day after surgery to repair complete torn pec tendon 5cm retract how long b4 pain subsides and I'm unsure if I am supporting arm in sling properly ?

3 day after surgery to repair complete torn pec tendon 5cm retract how long b4 pain subsides and I'm unsure if I am supporting arm in sling properly ?

U need to talk it --: over with your surgeon, as all of us have our own postop routines that we follow. Your surgeon is the only one who knows the type of repair, the quality of your tissues, and the repair he obtained. Anyway 3 days is too short a time that pain should subside. Generally pain from the incision itself will last for a minimum of 2 weeks or so. Good Luck. ...Read more

Im a professional pitcher and I have a tear in my common flexor tendon of my throwing arm. Where is that located and how do I rehab that?

Tear: The tear is usually located near the elbow. You need to initially rest the elbow, avoid throwing, use an anti-inflammatory drug. Then start a graduated strength and throwing program if the pain is better. An MRI is needed for full diagnoses and guidance by a sports medicine specialist for treatment. ...Read more
