I'll be going under the knife


I went to see a specialist surgeon yesterday to confirm what was wrong with my arm.  He confirmed it was a rupture of my long head tendon on my bicep.  I'm booked in to get an MRI scan at 1:30 today so that he can see the exact extent of the injury.

If all goes to plan I should be in for the operation next week.  After that it'll be a month in a sling (not ideal for someone with a month old baby, sorry April), then 3-4 months recovery.

Wish me luck.

At least i'll get a week or two off work.

The top part of my bicep has basically sunk down my arm as there's nothing there to hold onto it.  It looks a bit like i'm Pop-eye.
