Do Non-Muscle Injuries Slow Growth?

I got a big bruise today and it made me wonder - theoretically, do non-muscle injuries such as a bruise or scrape reduce potential for growth during the period in which they are healing? Or are these unrelated processes?

Don’t worry about it. Remember cortisol eats muscle.

I was stressed out a few weeks ago to the point where I had almost no appetite. I had to force feed whatever I could but the stress was very very high. I lost over 6 lbs in one week.
