How bad will the pain be after surgery to repair my torn bicep tendon?


Posted by lifeisadance2889

I am having the surgery in 2 weeks and have heard that the pain afterward is almost unbearable. The people I have talked to were older but Im only 19. I have also heard that bone pain is the worst because meds dill not work for that. I am very anxious and nervous and just want an honest answer of what to expect.

I have no answer for you. I had mine fixed (complete dorsal tear) about 6 weeks ago and the pain meds just took the edge off. The worst pain is where they attached the plate to my forearm on the bone. I wish you luck.
