Deca for Tendonitis?

Will deca do anything for my shoulder tendonitis (supraspinatus)? This might be a stupid question, but after nearly 8 months of doctors, naprapaths, physical therapists and manual therapists I’m getting kinda desperate.

I’ve read a bit about it, and I’m thinking about trying to get a deca prescription from my doctor. (AAS posession is legal here)

IF deca can help me, I’m still worried that it will shut me down, and that the doctors here don’t know much about AAS.

I have only been lifting for about 1.5 years and, allthough any gains from a cycle is a plus, shoulder-health is my main concern.

Thanks for the reply BBB :smiley:

What would i need to stack deca with then? As far as I can tell, GH would be alot harder to get from a doctor.

I personally would rehab it using a sports injury specialist… as one myself i know that that is the best course of action… anything else (peptides etc) should be ancillary to that.

I live in a small town, and the closest sports injury specialist is about 900 kilometers away. I would love to see one about my problem, but its sadly not an option for me…

The doctors I’ve seen here wanted to give me cortisone, which i declined. The naprapath administered several deep tissue treatment thingies, and the physical/manual therapists gave me a rehab program I’ve been following since late october with little or no effect.

So I’m getting very very frustrated.

Hey man,

I think this is an interesting topic. I’m doing a little research on it myself these days. My problems have been with tendonitis in the elbow and knee. It sucks.

Some comments on your post based on what I’ve learned:

  1. When you have tendonitis you have to learn to be extremely patient. If you get ‘desperate’ as you write - you’ll just make your injury worse (hard training despite pain etc).

  2. Get a Norwegian doctor to prescribe Deca for tendonitis for you? Oh brother, you are desperate! I’m Norwegian myself, and Norwegian doctors see steroids as… THE DEVILS WORK!!! Surely you know this… :slight_smile:

  3. Based on my own (limited ) experience Deca will not cure tendonitis. It will remove the symptoms while you’re on - and when off - they come back. And they come back worse…

  4. If you were to stack Deca with another compound, I think Testosterone Enanth is a good option (but not in your condition…)

Anyway, don’t take my word for it. I’m no authority on the matter. These are just my 2 cents.

Hopefully, the vets will give more optimistic advice.

By the way - have you read this article?

I’ve actually found quite some good videos on tendonitis on youtube also. Some good tips there.

Ok, good luck!

They did do a fairly recent study on the effects of Deca and ligament re-growth and elasticity… Granted i don’t know if this will help your actual tendonitis.

I’ll try and find the article again and link it.

hehe yeah, mentioning AAS to most doctors is like swearing in church. I could be lucky though :stuck_out_tongue:

Hehe, for sure. It could happen. Perhaps if you met a young doctor who isn’t brainwashed with outdated dogma and/or propaganda. Who you meet is a kind of lottery I suppose.

But honestly, I tried the deca route myself. It didn’t work for me. Not one bit. If there’s some scientific studies that say it does, that would be interesting reading maybe.

Also, very often a GP doctors don’t know all that much about either sports medicine or AAS. Personally, I’ve become a little cynical about most GP. It seems they just want to get rid of their patients as soon as possible instead of really helping them.

I think your best bet is to take a short break from muscle building for a while. Just a few months maybe. Think about really fixing the injury 100%. Think alternative training, stretching and rehap type training. Learn about the injury and become your own doctor.

There is tons of great info out there. Perhaps you find these videos helpful:

Ok, later,

PS: let me know if you find “Dr. Feelgood”.
