Is a bicep tear something that will heal of does it need surgery to tie it back together?

A partial tear may somewhat heal. A complete tear would require surgery. With a complete tear the bicep will ball up when ripped off and give ya dat permanent Popeye Muscle.
I went to the Doc for my first one, as the brusing was quite severe. His responce was 'we don't bother repairing it on old farts'.    :-\

The other arm will get a work out now. Easy Bruno stop lifting 3/400lb logs by hand, use the tractor.
I will pray for a fast recovery for you.

The tractor got picked up the night before.
It had a coolant leak and needed it's first service and the long kit installed.
I'm having the dealer do the first service so if there is any thing in the oil they see it.
I'm still working doing a porch renovation job.
With one arm :)

I told the guy the logs were heavy.
He only left with half a load had to come back
I won't do that again :)
