btw. how does a muscle get teared?
So, more questions to you wise people :3
How does a muscle get teared ? I mean biologically and functionally. What is the thing that cracks, the tendon ? The muscle ligaments ? The joinings ? What exactly, and what are the chemical and phisiological elements that may cause the tearings to happen and how to avoid them.
Any link or brief answer would be very much appreciated, and I will rep the shit out of you.
"Just got back from the ortho with my MRI results.
The tear is worse than anyone thought. It is a full thickness tear of the pec major at the muscle-tendon junction (worse than tearing the tendon off the bone). Surgery is definitely a priority now to make sure I regain full function. The recover period is 6-12 months and will require me to have my arm in a sling for about 4 weeks after the surgery. The part that I am most bummed about it my right side will atrophy big time right before my wedding in May and I'll look like absolute crap for it and the cruise. I know it might seem like it's not a big deal but I really wanted to be in good shape for my wedding and my first cruise. But at least it's going to get fixed.
The ortho did say something funny, he said "the fact that you have no complained about pain that much, only it being 'uncomfortable' just tells me that you have a ridiculous tolerance to pain". LOL
Thats terrible... His right side will atrophy BIG time! And on a natty physique it will take a really really long time to even things out if it even ever does. It really is a shame but he is a very intense lifter and the body can only handle so much stress before it..."snaps". Maybe now is a good time for layne to consider anabolics....
