Cycle after surgery?
Ok well as some of you know I have a bum shoulder...I am having surgery tomorrow (distal clavical resection) they are removing bone from my collar bone because it is hitting my AC joint. He said about 6 weeks till I can hit the weights again. Obviously I want to bounce back as fast as possible without injury. My question is what do you guys think of starting a cycle 6 weeks after surgery? OR.....Would a simple cycle of test help me heal faster?
Thanks and wish me luck

Are you talking about a 6 week cycle directly after your surgery?!?! Personally i would wait till you are completly healed and then lift naturally for about 3 months to reduce the risk of injury.. remember it will all come back quick if you have proper diet and training.

yeah bro u dont want test runing through ur veins while ur going through rehab. make sure u're 100% then hit the test. u wanna build a foundation to build on not start from scratch.

No, start a cycle 6 weeks after I have the surgery when I am ready to lift again. Remember they are not touching any ligaments or tendons just cutting off a small section of bone. The doc says its a pretty quick recovery .... And what if I start a cycle and lift kinda light for a few weeks first.

6 weeks will be the time needed for everything to heal. from the first day after surgery to the 6th week u will only be doing rehab and in no shape to start a cycle. in 6 weeks you can have a significant amount of muscle waste. after 6 weeks hit the gym hard and nartural for a month or two then hit a cycle. you will show more results. reason being is your muscle memory will kick in once u start hitting the gym hard again and youll bounce back very fast naturally.

So in your guys' opinion ABOUT how long should I wait after surgery? 2 months maybe?
I just cant wait to get back in gear!

Dont' push your natural abilities after rehab, your body might not be able to handle the overload of strength and cause further damage. I'd wait ATLEAST a couple months after you're back lifting and getting your strength back. I had both my knees scoped and as soon as i was able to start lifting again, i started juicing again, wouldnt ya know it? I tore cartilage in both knees 3 weeks later.
