I was sitting down working today when i looked down and noticed that my bicep tendon looked a little bit different than normal. Not sure if its been like this and i just never noticed or what. but i had surgery to repair a fully torn distal tendon on new years eve this past year. I am pretty sure that the tendon feels tight and secure yet my bicep seems to ball up a little bit. I have been working out a little harder lately but my surgeon told me that if it tore again, i would know it... I see no bruising, and its not painful. maybe it feels slightly weak but i think that may be in my head because it didnt feel abnormal before i noticed it.

could this be a partial tear?

wouldnt it be very painful if it tore again or the screw from the surgery gave or somehting?

could something else be causing this effect? tendonitis maybe? i have no clue
