    How much time off after gyno surgery?

    well, i just left the doctors office and he told me that i can get the surgery to have my gyno removed but he said that i wont be able to lift for about 6 weeks. anybody thats had the surgery know if this is true. i just started a pretty big cycle and i dont want to go through with it any time soon if i wont be able to lift for that long. and just so theres no confusion this isnt something that will go away with nolva. ive had it for as long as i can remember and ive already tried nolva. thanx

    did he ask to get the actual gland removed that produces gyno or just the gyno?

    if you get that gland removed will you never get gyno again?

    not sure actually, he just told me he could do it and it was a simple procedure of cutting under the nipple lifting it up and removing it. i dont know if hes removing the gland or not. but either way i want to know how long ill be out from lifting. cause if its only a couple of days then ill go ahead and do it while im on my cycle. otherwise im gonna wait

    Ive had mine cut out Both sides and they never removed the full gland now i got to go back and do it all over again. GET THE GLAND REMOVED! Thats my best piece of advice.
    After the surgury i was felling better and moving around the next day By the second week i was already working out doing bench and cable crossovers no pain at all.

    Make sure you get it done by a plastic surgeon and not a general surgeon.

    You will be much happier with your results.

    Wait Wait Wait...

    If you get the gland removed, then isnt there a huge fucking hole when you flex? Thats what I heard...just trying to verify...

    BUMP!

    Through a wrestling friend I heard that the Rock has his glands removed...he definitely has indentations on his pecs.

    well, i dont think that my gyno has gotten anyworse from any of my cycles. maybe from one with deca , test, fina. but never with just test or eg. so maybe i would just be better off gettting the tissue removed and keeping some nolva around. cause i def dont want any holes in my chest

    Definitely get it done by a good plastic surgeon.

    I had both of mine cut out after my 4th cycle last year, and also had some lipo done for shaping. I was outta action for about 6 weeks with a fucking tight vest around my chest. Damn that was a bitch.

    My surgeon took out the gland but left a bit of the fatty, adipose tissue there to allow for curvature and little indentation. If he/she takes out the nipple plate as well, then you will definitely have a indentations.

    Good luck mate.

    I got the surgery about 3 years ago. Kaiser covered it but I had to tell them is was more of a mental problem otherwise they would not have done it.

    They put you to sleep, you wakeup, throwup, go home and cant move your arms much past your shoulders for a couple days. I was told to stay off the weights for 5-6 weeks because the tunnel they made while removing the tissue with the tube could get blood in it and if that hardened up it would cause hardness and a possible lump there. I stayed off the weights for about 3 weeks then hit legs for the next 2 weeks. I have to say it was worth it, only bad part you have to wear a compression vest to keep your nips tight so the blood will not get in the tunnels. Do it in Winter and wear a sweatshirt for a while.

    Well they asked why I wanted it to be removed, and I said it makes me feel insecure about myself. They asked if I had used steroids before and of course I said no. I said I have had it since a kid and it has always bothered me mentally. They are more likely to remove it if it is a mental problem. If it is physical then they consider it cosmetic and most insurance companys will not do the procedure.

    Hope that helps.

    About cutting out the whole gland, the problem is that there is not nice little circular gland to cut out. It's actally a knot with a bunch of roots growing off of it (like spider webs) that go into your chest, so all they can really do is cut off whats on the top, they can't remove it all. I've heard that the more they cut, the less likely it is to come back, but it cannot be completely removed with no chance of regrowth.

    Definitely have a plastic surgeon do it.

    check out this site www.plasitcsurgery4u.com and search for info on the procedure.

    Also don't forget about the excessive bleeding that may occur due to gear usage, I may have missed it but I didn't catch what you were taking, so you may want to factor that into your decison.

    Just my .02 cents.
