Now you get to wipe left handed
Yikes! I appreciate the info, but it's not what I wanted to hear. I doubt I have a full blow out. I have no pain while my arm is in a resting 45 degree position. Its when I try to extend my arm or lift more than a 12 oz beer that I feel discomfort. I'm seeing a specialist tomorrow morning and we'll plot a course from there. If surgery is needed, I'll try to get that scheduled asap. I'm pretty worthless now so I might as well get on the road to recovery.
I found out this morning I actually have video footage of the incident. My ring floodlight security cam captured the entire ordeal. It looks like I bent down to lift up and got stung by a hornet. Its pretty comical.
The only thing keeping me sane through this is that I arrowed my biggest MI buck on Friday the 13th. I was actually lifting a garbage can with his rib cage, partial hide and scraps when I injured my bicep. That old buck got the last laugh on me.
PM sent.Completely tore my left biceps early last May. I was back playing softball sometime around mid August. Its a litttle tender for about a week, but I didn't think recovery was too bad. I do a lot of lifting, and I don't notice any difference in strength or appearance besides the little scar.
Get it done ASAP and you'll be good in no time!
(My surgeon was phenomenal if you need a reference)
I ruptured my right bicept two years ago playing pickleball.Hurt like hell and bulged out quite a bit. Tried everything . Hot, cold, meds. Finally a friend told me about Blue Emu cream.Twice a day morning and evening. Pain went away in a week continued until jar was empty. Started playing again in two months no surgery no pain. Try it.I tore my bicep last night while taking out the trash! Seriously, I can't believe it! I was trying to lift up a garbage can full of heavy stuff to dump it into our large garbage bin to take it out to the curb for the morning pickup and as soon as I lifted up I hear a loud POP POP! I felt immediate pain and lost all strength in my right arm. My right bicep is now a different shape than my left bicep. My doc recommended a specialist (who happens to be a friend), I facetimed him tonight and he said it sounds like a textbook rupture. I see him Thursday morning.
In the meantime, no more hunting off the ground and I have to have someone help me with all the heavy lifting related stuff. It sounds like I have clearance to pull a trigger from the ground and that's about it. I need a hunting caddy. This really sucks!
Anyone dealt with a ruptured bicep before? How long was the recovery?
