I have spent the last couple of weeks researching this. I tore my left biceps right off the bone and feel sure that my constant high test was a leading contributor to this. I have been on five different forms looking for info and keep coming across the same info from some study about deca and eq causing tendons to strengthen. They never post where the article came from, who did the study.

On another board a guy was referring to that same article and said that these compounds can cause a thicker tendon, yet it is brittle. Has anyone seem anything recent on this subject? I want to know if I could use any ASS to speed tendon strengthening and healing of my surgery. Thanks.

Though I dont have the literature on hand I have read the actual study that showed Deca Durabolin caused an increase in cellular regeneration of cadaver tendon in a petri dish with only deca as a medium. No other growth factors or nutrients were present. Growth hormone works but at a very slow rate. Who ever told you deca will increase and weaken tendon strength is clueless.

However for the most expedient regeneration of cells in a traumatic I jury had been proven in both equine amd bovine research is TB500. Read the article I wrote in our Chem Article Section.

As for helping ensure this doesnt happen again... 2-5mg GH while on the sauce.

It was the Eq, actually that they were saying makes tendons larger, yet brittle. I do have npp and boldenone on hand at this time and hGH does not fit into the budget at his time, so I am trying to find out if anything that I have is useful at this time , being post-op.

I am going to read the article that you suggested. Thank you for taking the time to help me. One ,more thing, if tren increases IGF1, should I use some tren that I have for that effect while trying to heal?

The physiological effect on healing would be miniscule. TB500 is a godsend. Trust me. And sorry. Replying from my phone. EQ has no healing properties that I am aware of.

TB5, gh & deca or npp are all great "supplements". ive torn no muscles, but have a nagging rorator cuff injury in my left delt. I was running straight tren & m sten, was very lean & dry as well. so I think they were contributing factors along with my aggressive training demeanor. hydration is key with joints, tendons & ligaments as well as shuttling nutrients to the injuries.. re connection of the muscle along with the above mentioned supps & a slow rehab is best..

I have always enjoyed using deca during my bulking cycles because I have had terrible shoulder pain from different injuries in judo. The water my body holds makes me joints feel alot better, but like any AAS, once Im off and my body starts to rid of it, the joint pain returns. From the few years Ive taken it, Ive never found that it has did any actually healing, rather just had a masking attempt so that I could lift and rest with much less pain. No science to back up my statements, just a real life guy who has used it and giving testimonial what it did for me. Good luck to you.

Nandrolone has helped me so many times recover quickly from injuries. It's also a main reson why top level Powerlifters use it daily.
