Well good luck wuith the rehab and I am glad you could get that done.
My partial bicep tendon tear is okay almost one year later without surgery, the surrounding muscles are bigger to compensate and yes there is some annoyance with one bicep being 25% weaker than the other.
The tear affects the screwdriver motion of the bicep and did not affect shots in hockey thankfully.
I am sure you will be absolutely perfect after your surgery is healed and rehabbed.
