Re: [RC] hurt myself good this time - Amber Roberts

at work, moving a patient.  I tore the tendon off the distal head of my right biceps muscle.  can you say exteme pain?
That was last tuesday, I had the surgery to reattach the tendon this morning and I'm doing fine.  One catch though; no riding, no firefighting, no working in the ambulance for at least 6 months or until the Rehab guys and my Orthoprdic Surgeon say yes.

My husband had the exact same injury in a horse accident some years ago. Had that same surgery.  Was able to go back to work (computer desk work) in 6 weeks but couldn't lift anything for about 3 months.  He has fully recovered.  I wish you a speedy recovery.
