In brief: 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.
