Stupid injury.

Apparently I'm old now. I snapped the tendon on my right arm, disconnecting my right bicep from the anchor point on my forearm.

I've had the surgery (three days after, at zero cost thanks to Canada's medicare system) with a surgeon who handles the Winnipeg Jets.

Long story short : my gym workouts are totally compromised (for 6+ months) and gaming is currently in 15 minute spurts.

Ugh.

Yikes!  Snapping a major tendon does NOT sound like fun at all.   icon_eek 

Thankfully, as you say, the cost of that sort of surgery is covered by Canada's medical system and you're not looking at thousands and thousands of dollars in debt and unable to work properly on top of it.  Not being able to game for much at a time does seem to make recovery more boring than usual, though.

Oddly enough, just yesterday I saw this picture of a guy who tore his pectoral muscle after going for the world's bench press world record.



I think he would agree that you should never give more than 100%.   icon_wink
