The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Diagnosed: A type IV tear in my upper bicep tendon.

    Just came back from the orth and he said that MRI came back indicating that I have this type of injury( Type 4 SLAP lesion). I am almost positive I got it from shrugs. My decision is surgery, because I see it being a concern in the long run if I don't repair it now. My question is has anyone had this type of longitudinal tear?..if so how long was the recovery post surgery? He also said that if its bad He will cut the tendon off, remove the crakced portion, and attach it to my upper arm by drilling a hole in the bone. So it will sit about an inch lower then when it was connected to at the shoulder. How secure is this ancher for future bicep curls...?

    Thank you,
    Nazar

    I'm sure there are people here with similar experiences who can (and will) comment, but these sound like questions you should be asking the ortho, too. Especially if he is suggesting surgical reattachment. Good luck man.

    Its hard to believe that I am the only person who has this issue. No one can give me some clue as to what I'm in for?

    Were you continuing to lift when you should have stopped, or what happened? I've injured my shoulder so many times, that I'm frightened of getting injured, but I never know when enough is enough.
