Two weeks after the surgery they have made me into a bloated cyborg. This new brace is so I can't lock my arm all the way out because that puts more tension on the bicep connection.

Each week I'm able to go 10% more. Until the 4th week with this I will be able to straighten my arm out and then I can do rehab at that point.

Remember before I was Mummy Status for 2 weeks.

The one thing the doctor said that I didn't like is he acted like that arm will come back 90%. I was really hoping he would say 110% or something. Tommy John which is performed on guys who tore their UCL in their elbow comes back 120% because of the way that repair is done.

I missed anything…how did you hurt your bicep?

I tried to read more about this, but I have not found anything about it.

But I found this:

In a study of 179 Major League Baseball pitchers who suffered UCL tears and had Tommy John Surgery, 148 players, or 83%, were able to return to play in the Major League. Additionally, 174 pitchers could return to play in the major and minor leagues combined. Only five pitchers, 2.8%, couldn’t return to play in either league.

Oh! Yup! You look like a cyborg! 😂
But there’s still time to recover fully! Eat well and sleep well! The body has its own intelligence.
