S/P Pectoralis Major Repair

In the procedure the tendon and muscle are reattached to the bone of the humerus with suture anchor. Your arm will remain in a shoulder sling for at least 3 weeks. The length of time that you will be off work will depend on your job but expect a minimum of 6 weeks if work involves heavy duties.
