      the biceps tenodesis recovery is about a year, depending on what your OS' protocol is post op it's a pretty restrictive recovery at first like a cuff repair. You'll feel a better a lot sooner then a year, but getting over strength plateaus, etc and just getting it feeling like normal is close to a year, at least it was in my case. the tenodesis saved some of my sanity in terms of pain relief and everything else going with my shoulder, that's for sure.

      if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask, i hope it goes well, you've had quite the year.

      Thanks, Leanne. If someone would've told me a year ago that I'd still be dealing with this, I would not have believed it! This forum is so helpful - I've spent many a night between 3 and 5 am searching for support and advice. i don't care too much about strength as I am 55 (53 when this all started). Luckily, my sport of choice, horse riding, is a partnership with an animal and some weakness can be forgiven. Of course, my horse knows my limitations and does not hesitate to challenge me when I want to go in one direction and he wants to go in another!
      I am again glad this surgery is now, when it is too cold and icy to ride. My poor long suffering husband will have to clean the barn. ... oh well.
