      It sure does sound like your tendon is there, but I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

      Best of luck!

      I "think" it was attached to the humerus. But I'm not certain....I have the surgical notes but they are at my current DR's office.

      The weirdest thing in all this is that whatever I did, happened in my sleep!

      These things are pretty hard to pull out and much tougher than you think - I was paranoid about it for a few months and also felt like mine was pulling out but it was fine - It would take a large focrce to pull out - I can't see how you could have done that whilst asleep ?

      Logically I know this but....There is definitely something hard, round and clearly palpable in the middle of this large, ugly black and blue mark. The only other possibility would be a bone fragment which would still raise the question....How did this happen in my sleep?".

      The other issue is that I had my original surgery done in MA and now 7 months later live in CA. I don't have an OS and am trying to get in to see one. I'm on a waitlist for tomorrow with one an am still trying with another surgical group. I also see my new GP for physical on Friday so worst case scenario he could determine what it is and then help me get in to an OS sooner.

      Well that's worrying ! - I hope it proves to be okay - Would be very interested in hearing what a specialist says - Keep in touch.

      I must admit last time I was in the waiting room to see my OS I overheard somebody else say that his tenodesis had failed - Makes you wonder how long these things last ?
