It was interesting as I was expecting one solution per my primary physician & the diagnosis I got was totally different/opposite of it. And if the solution given that day doesn't work, it's still a different solution from what the primary physician thought it would be.

I tore the upper tendon to my bicep, being a person who is extremely active and being in the law enforcement career field, i am having a hard time understanding that surgery is not recommended. I take pride in working out and being a law enforcement officer and struggle with the thought that my strength maybe limited. Maybe I'm overreacting but as someone who enjoys staying active, both in and out of the water, I do not want my life limited. It would be nice to talk to another active person, who sustained the same injury without surgery, this would reassure me that the decision made was the right one. Thank you for your time.
