Default Anyone ever tore their bicep from the bone?

I tore my bicep off of the bone this past weekend I am so bummed. 43 years old at the company picnic and tear my freaking bicep tendon trying out a stupid portable rock climbing wall.

Anyways I'm supposed to have surgery next Tuesday to reattach it. Has anyone gone through this? The doc said I should / could be back to normal in 6 to 8 months. I'm just bummed that I'll have to take a lot of time off from training. I know I can work on legs and core, but the thought of no upper body is a bummer.

Thanks for readin my sob story
