Man if your hurt there is not much you can do. Just make sure you keep your diet in check and make the best of what you can do. Also allow your self time to heel if you don't you will regret it later. Good luck

well hopefully ya dont need surjury dude but if ya do dont worry i was unable to use my arm for a whole year and i just sucked it up and worked out everything that i could that didnt involve that arm and i did ok i shrunk a bit and got a bit of fat in the lower stomach but since i had been keeping my cardio in check when the arm was healed i bounced back in like 3 weeks . if ya dont need surgury just rest rest rest. it will get better

Bro, first congrats on losing all that weight .. second I had the same problem with medial, lateral, bicep and tricep tendonitos! I believe mobility would be severely lowered if something was torn.. Seek out active release as PT!!! Do you legs twice a week and up your cardio, thats what I did, kept me somewhat in the game
