    Ruptured bicep tendon,how long to heal?

    I bodybuilt for 4year,from when i was 16 to 20,i got pretty massive. For the past 2 year i took up boxing so lost alot of weight,but keeping a muscular appearence. Im 22 now, I just had my last tournament before hanging up the gloves and making a return to bodybuilding. during the final of the competition, i ruptured my bicep tendon from the bone. My bicep rolled halfway up my arm and i fought 2rounds with one arm to finish the fight as the winner. Anyway, cut a story short i have surgery next wednesday morning to sort it out. My bicep may stay short ive been told. Ive also been told by one doctor its going to be 6months of physio before i can do anything as ill have to restretch the muscle? Anybody know much about this? I think im just going to hit lower body now as monday was my start date at the gym but its ruined everything for me. Some of you may remember me a few years ago as "kittednova" on here,youll see how i used to be if you check that out. Thanks

    Did some googling for you,

    Maybe months to a year, be sure to do some physiotherapy and get it up and working

    Wish you a good recovery bud!

    We're not doctors or experts, Get it examined and ask your doctor...

    It all depends on how severe the rupture is.

    i dunno i have tendonitis in my biceps tendon and i was at risk of rupturing it and was told it might have been 6 months before i can start my rehab let alone start lifting again, but instead i'm just having a few weeks off (didn't mean to rub it in sorry)

    This OP.

    When a muscle at the tendon as been ripped from the bone it will take a long time for it to heal after surgery.

    1. Tendons have low bloody supply compared to muscles
    2. Rehabilitation

    So just so what exercises you can do for lower body and the like and allow it to heal.
