With all your other financial responsibilities and family ones just consider whats most important to you. I had the same issue with my pec and took about a year before it felt back to normal. I took a lot of time off using that muscle and focused on stretching/iso.
    Thats what the bottom line comes to. Making it to work and still putting food on the table. Competitions can wait. 10-4 guys.

    I can't say what damage you did so I can't say a good lift in Dec is in or out.

    This is my complete tendon rupture about 5 years ago. That's about all the bruising I had. The tendon has little blood flow to it and therefor tends to bruise less then a muscle belly rupture. Believe it or not, a rupture in the tendon is most times repairable where one in the muscle has little hope for surgical repair.



    I have a few pictures of the surgery but that definitely would not make you feel any better.

    Where that wound is in your pic is where my pain is.
    Was it a non invasive quick surgery? Recovery time, did you have to take off from work?

    Pain was deep and a little more in the crease, just below the bruise.

    Surgery was quick but it's not a scoped procedure. Doc cut me along a stretch mark and I asked for a cosmetic surgeon to close, Doc didn't like that but can't tell I had it done.

    Spent 5 weeks in a sling, rehab for 3 months and was out of the gym the entire time. Wife said it was most miserable she had ever seen me. Started benching with the bar. About 3 years later I competed and I crushed just 20 lbs less then my all time PR.

    An MRI would tell the story.

    I should have mentioned this before but with a full rupture, my pectoral/bi/delt tie-in had a slight divot in there.
