Anyone recover from torn triceps surgery? I fell, planted my arm awkwardly and snapped the tendon. My doctor said it was a rare but very fixable injury. It is reattached and I am 2 weeks recovering. Doc says 6 months to 100%. I am glad to hear that. Anyone else recovered from a tear and surgery of this type?
Thanks for any info

For the good of all, I am posting an update. 5 months out from injury. 100 percent torn at triceps tendon was reattached with anchors installed in elbow. PT was slow for first 8 weeks as they had to balance between repair being strong and regaining motion and strength vs. retearing of the muscle. I am about to be cleared after 5 months and a week. Getting strength back. I am at about 20 solid pushups now with some pain, pre surgery I was at 60 in a set. So it is a longer road back but you can get back to mtb’ng at about 100%.
