Biceps tenodesis

Holiday travels are over. It’s good to be home with the pack of six. Last evening they showered us with love upon our return home. Fearsome loves his pups.

Today will be a busy one as it is the one and only day to tie up loose ends before surgery. The left arm will be immobilized for four weeks. I’m way behind on my blog reading. My apologies to my blog buddies and prepare yourselves as I am going to have some downtime to catch up.

A brief description of my surgical procedure:

-A biceps tenodesis is a surgical procedure performed for the treatment of a damaged proximal long head of biceps tendon. A biceps tenodesis may be performed as an isolated procedure, but more often is part of a larger shoulder surgery, such as a rotator cuff repair.

During biceps tenodesis surgery, the normal attachment of the biceps tendon in the shoulder joint is detached (if not completely torn already), and the tendon is reinserted to the bone of the humerus (arm bone).-

  1. Sounds like you had a good time, but sorry to hear about the surgery, but it will mend and you’ll be good as new! Best wishes! Nothing better than animal love for recovery. I too am on my way out on another vacation soon, so I will catch you in the blogosphere soon

  2. Yikes! – but thanks for not showing us pictures.
    Rest well, recover rapidly and as pain-free as possible, and take comfort from where it’s readily given unconditionally, like from a wet-nosed one.
    See you when you return. Bestest wishes to you and Fearsome.
