Question - Pectoralis Tear (Surgery?)
I am awaiting surgery for a pectoralis tear... just a quick question. Clearly I have torn the pectoralis major tendon where it connects to the arm/shoulder. Now I understand looking at pics there are two parts - the clavicular component and the sternal component. I think i have torn the sternal component. If both parts were torn, the pectoralis would be falling down more, wouldn't it?
If I cancel the surgery are there any side effects later down the track...like instability in the shoulder region? Does it throw it out of balance or something?
