ANy comments or suggestions??? CHeers
WIth 6 years of an unattached bicep, it would be atrophied (wasted away) terribly and the tendon incredibly shortened. Your recovery will be heaps harder than anyone that has had a recent rupture as there is no muscle bulk and a hell of a lot of stretching to reconnect the tendon. Good luck and let us know how you go.
