    Injury recovery with Test

    Stats:
    Age: 48
    Wt: 165
    Bloodwork Results:
    Free test: 79.6 PG/ML
    Bio Avail: 177.6 NG/DL

    Opinions on running low doses of Cyp T per week aiding in recovery of my Distal Bicep Tendon surgery. Not planning on running AI.
    My thoughts is that it is basically TRT. I was on Androgel for a while and was not prescribed any AI.

    Thanks in advance.

    TRT is not something you randomly start & stop at will. It's a medical necessity that requires a life long & responsible commitment. It's not for surgical recovery.

    I too had a distal bicep tear & reattachment. Adequate rest and physical rehab after surgery is the only ticket. If you take the rehab seriously without re-injuring it, you'll be near normal in ~10-12 months.

    Good luck...

    Not aware that T aides in tendon recovery/rebuilding; muscle yes, tendon - no. HGH might help however. Believe the NFL wants to study HGH in injury recovery for its players.

    Testosterone doesn't help in recovering from a tendon injury. A lot of people injure their self while on cycle because they tendons aren't strong enough. There's people that have had some luck with TB500. You might want to look into that and look at some of the threads of people's experiences. Good luck

    There are a lot of studies that indicate test actually inhibits tendon repair. Narcotics such as Npp, deca , EQ and HGH are actually very helpful in the healing of tendons and muscular tears. HGH being the king of the lot ofcourse.

    That has nothing to do with anything.
    That's just their legality.

    The medical definition of a narcotic is a mind-altering drug that promotes euphoria and sleep (opiates mainly, though it should also include benzos and other similar drugs). The US legal definition (the same people who have weed scheduled in a more serious category than meth) covers pretty much all illegal drugs.

    Steroids are only narcotics if you're a dumbass cop.

    It's just a legal definition, not really meant to be a debate regarding semantics. They are also legally referred to as a "legend drug". if that pleases the eyes better let's roll with that then lol

    Bon, are you suggesting our government doesn't know what's best for us? Blasphemy

    Heroin is a schedule 1. Feel free to load up, pretty sure you won't feel your tendons anymore

    For recovery, skip tb500 and Hit Bpc-157 instead.

    Was the only thing that helped noticeably.

    There's some interesting studies on-line regarding it.

    I think I am going to give BPC-157 a try. Hopefully I am not breaking rules here, but, since its a peptide and not AAS, does anyone know how to source this stuff? I've checked online, and there's a lot out there, any recommendations?
    Second question, never done IM injections...do you pin right at the tendon, or the bicep, the forearm?
    Thanks in advance.

    Don't pin the tendon! Google prp injection protocol, and you'll see why you shouldn't do this.

    Some say nearest is better. Not feasible for me- My injury was where the trap and skull connect. Pinned delts im and all was good.

    Nlm has many positive and useful studies. Please read before purchasing.

    Last summer I ran my first cycle with 260 mg test. All of my tender injuries seemed to vanish by the sixth week
