detached bicep muscle

(3 discussions)

I am a 64 year old male. Five months ago I had rotator cuff surgery.
This week I noticed my bicep muscle looks detached.
What does this mean? Can it be repaired?
I do not have pain, but I do not have much strength in my arm.
I am very active and play on tennis leagues.
I have been waiting six months to start playing tennis again since the rotator surgery.

    I saw your entry in orthoped.org, Ask the Physical Therapist website from some time ago. Your situation appeared to be somewhat similar to what I am dealing with right now. I am contemplating surgery on my right shoulder to alleviate bicep tendon problems that I have had continuously for the last couple of years. I will have my bicep tendon clipped and reattached using a bio screw into the top of my upper arm bone. I realize this is not your exact surgery but from your entry it appears to be a similar situation. If you have time to respond to me I would be interested to know if you had the bicep/ shoulder surgery and how it worked out for you. Did it alleviate your problems and are you better off now/ are you glad you had the surgery? Thanks for your consideration. My email address is:[email protected]
