    TRT and tendon repair

    Sorry to ask so many questions as a newby on here. As I mentioned on another thread, I started Test Cyp two weeks ago at 200mg every two weeks.(it's already being addressed that this isn't the best protocol. That said, on Tuesday I had tennis elbow surgery. I am wondering if the test will help in any way with healing? If not, does anyone know anything that may?

    -Test will increase RBCs, this will increase oxygen to the area. There may be other mechanisms that provide benefit.
    -Does your TRT doc prescribe Sermorellin? Sermorellin is a ghrh and, as such, will help with tendon repair.
    -My BW showed my IGF-1 to be 92 (range is 50ish to 350). I have a history of bones/cartilage not healing properly. From my doc's pharmacy, it cost me $1000 for three months. My labrums have stopped cracking when I move my arms.

    I believe hgh has been shown to help heal tendons too.

    Hgh has been shown to greatly increase healing times after joint surgery. It can increase bone density as well. My brother has a good doctor that just finished a complete resalvage of his shoulder (12th ortho surgery) and i pressed him to request hgh and he would have prescribed it to him but he never made the phone call. It can double healing time in some cases. In the world of a pro athlete that is monumental. Test will not do jack in comparison and possibly nothing for a tendon.

    In a perfect world... most joint surgeries would be followed up with hgh.

    Your surgeon would need to be the one. After you have been through enough surgeries you will find that one guy that is awesome if you are lucky. Some never will. You are sol on the hgh prescript at this point. Self administration would be the only option and you must learn a lot before that.

    Even if he did, good luck getting insurance to pay for it. You'll be shocked at the prescription cost.

    I can't remember but there's a hgh rejuvenation clinic and other then the visits etc I think they told me the scripts and such will be like 300-400$. But I may be mistaken and talking about something else

    What about oral AAS? I've always thought that plain T would help tendons just like they help muscles, just to a lesser degree, there. Wing no direct bloodsupply to tendons. HGH would be even better, (I would add in T though)

    But c17 oral AAS, like dianabol should increase IGF1 production.
    Not sure by how much.
    But if 10-15mg a day was used, probably would help,
    And DBOL has a great safety profile, so staying on that dose for 3-4mo shouldn't be a very big deal for one who's allready a TRT candidate.
    Would look into it before I did this though.
    (Or personally I'd look into it while I was doing it, lol)

    Given the person has the proper base there is probably a positive effect. There is always the chance that someone using AAS, oral or not, will not have the proper base and their muscle growth will supersede their tendon growth, causing injury eventually.
