    shoulder surgery and juicin'

    just had rotator cuff surgery 3 months ago. my surgery was more compicated than most. i injured it in november and worked out until may(complicating the situation) i tore my supraspunatius tendon(behind front deltoid) in 3 places, had bone spurs, slap leations, arthritus and inflamation. a 45 min. surgery took 2 1/2 hrs. and left me with a scar 5 inches long on the top of my shoulder. my question is, will test and deca help the healing prosess. im anxious to start my 5th cycle, but was told from the doctor that the tendon hasnt healed 100% although it feels great. i have great range of motion, but is not as strong as i would like it to be. im not expecting miracles, but i would like to get started on my pysic again. has any one had this surgery or any input . thanks for you help

    I would say yes, test/deca may help, but you hve to not lift and only do your PT! That means no lifting even if you feel fine! Once your off the cycle and have recovered completely, then start lifting ....slowly!

    I would not suggest a test /deca cycle to heal your shoulder, all the Deca will do is lubricate your joints therefor masking your pain. Plus the fact that your adding strength/size on a cycle is going to do nothing but put that much more tension on your shoulder.

    I know this because I too had shoulder surgery, and what was suppose to take me 4-6 weeks to heal took me close to a year and a half, and I still have a little pain here and there in it. Listen to your body bro, dont rush these things, the iron is going no where.

    I used test/deca to heal my tendonitis. The only exercise I did was waht my PT suggested. I lifted nothing! after 6 weeks, i stopped, waited 4 weeks then started to lightly lift. IF you do not lift while on the juice in this situation, It might help? it did for me, however, for a sholder/joint injury, I would talk to your PT!

    I had shoulder surgery 6 month ago, AS won't help to heal your tendon, You must wait until month 6 to begin any type of cycle. This is the time your body need to fully stick everything in place. AS just make you stronger and bigger.BUT, your training routine and rehab as well are the key. Just train light, at your pace until you feel conforteble to handle AS treatment AFTER 6 MONTHS.....I just begun my first come back cycle last week, I'll let you know how does it goes....
    Good luck!
