    wow, this sucks

    I ordered a carbon fiber hood for one of my project cars, it came in today. big box, only around 20lbs, I pick it up and my left bicep tears all the way across. I got back from ER a little while ago, they do surgery day after tomorrow. as soon as it tore I knew what happened, I just couldn't believe that's how I tore it

    they said they will drill hole(s) in the bone below my elbow, pull the ligaments down and thread them through, then put titanium caps on the ligaments to keep them from pulling through. will be 90 days before I can start lifting with it again.

    That stinks bad Big, the good thing is that it should heal pretty good and you will be back to training in no time.

    I put the big block vette on the back burner for now, started tearing the '64 Stingray down for a frame-off, and picked up a Grand-Touring RX8 for my first ricer project. That's what the hood is for.

    No fvckn way. OMG that sucks. Why the hell does this stuff happen to us/you, someone who works so hard to make gains, get in shape and then something so little can set you back for months if not years.

    I honestly will pray for a speedy recovery. Time to get a good supply of HGH on hand....

    I worry about something like that happening all the time, trust me.
    Do you think it could have anything to do with the muscles/tendons being dry due to test or another AAS like whinny?

    I hope you know whatever you do DONT put heat on it. Use Ice. Even though there is nothing to heal until after the surgery you still dont want to much blood going to it, it will cause more swelling and pain.,

    I use vicodine. It only takes the edge off pain for me, what are you using?

    No insurance SUCKS. Any way to get around that? I dont understand how these people who dont have insurance or money can get everything under the sun done for free. You know if you where an illegal it's all free.... I would go to another er and LIE about who you are, say no job, from ???? etc. Really I would consider it. We all pay for these people who dont put anything into our system anyways and only suck us dry. You pay taxes like most of them dont.

    good call on the heat, I'm using ice. they sent me home pumped full of morphine and gave me a script of lortabs. I go back tomorrow for the pre-surgery bs. doubt I sleep tonight as bad as this hurts.

    Really really to hear about all this Big.
    I dont know what is up with Morphine. I have always heard such great stuff about it and was given some about 3 years ago when I ruptured L5 and was pretty much paralized from the waist down for 2 weeks pre surgery. They also gave me a prescription for it. It did nothing for me
    3 750 mg vicodine, 2 Valium and some morphine I could sleep but still not walk/stand.

    What do you think the cause of the rip was? Obviously not over lifting. I know it's usually the little/simple things that get you/us but they normally say it was ready to go, the damage was already done.

    Do you think it might have been pre damaged or dry? Where you doing any cutting at the time?

    I actually have been taking it easy for a couple months, the doc speculated that it was just time for it to let go.

    I have to say if I every (Knock on wood) had something like that happen to me I would be setting up my shoulder ortho surgery I need and my back fusion at the same time. Get it all done at once so I dont have 3x the recovery. LOL

    I hope to have to live with the back pain and slight shoulder discomfort for many more years.

    I'm trying to keep my chin up, my legs have been lacking a bit so once I'm able I'll use the time to hit legs hard.

    Good attitude. You can still do legs and abs, get really cut and have a great 6pk for summer

    DONT rush the recovery or push it. Pain is there for a reason. It would suck 2x as much to re tear it.

    Did you ice it straight away?

    Keep with the heat, it will aid in the repaire of damaged muscle fibres. Take something for the swelling too.

    I have a friend of a friend that ripped his bicep (here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ls9EygRn_3c). He was back lifting heavy ass weights in no time at all. They usually heel very well, but may look a little strange.

    I iced it within 10 minutes of the injury, and I took ibuprofen hoping to aid in swelling.

    I went in for pre-op today, the EKG showed atrial fibrillation, so they postponed the surgery until I can get an appointment with a cardiologist and go from there

    I was going to make a joke buy maybe it would be in bad taste.

    Honestly that is no big deal. MANY people have it and never even know it. It just means they have to monitor you more closely when they knock you out for the surgery and want to have a heart doctor on board or on call JUST in case there is a problem. No worries.

    Good luck with your recovery, maybe something good came from the arm injury ,since they found a problem with your ticker.
