Personally, I think that House chooses to suffer in agony 'cos he’s a stubborn c*nt, who likes to be a martyr… But this is an interesting scenario you have dreamed up here I’m liking the use of GH and IGF1, and yes test is extremely synergistic with both, but then it does nothing for collagen formation.
However, since necrotic tissue is replaced over time with fibrous tissue anyway, I’m not sure whether a pro-collagen steroid like EQ or primo would be a good idea or not… I certainly don’t think that 1000mg of test /wk would be a goos idea, after all, it’s gonna take longer than 12 weeks to regenerate (if thats even possible) functional muscle. Maybe a more modest dose of 300-400 mg /Wk test, with 200 mg EQ, or 400mg primo given in bursts (not the test, that would need to be steady administration).
The appetite increase from the EQ might not be such a good idea though. Yes House is a scrawny mofo, but until he regains use of his lower limb, he probably shouldn’t be carrying around a whole load of extra weight, lol.
Bushy, I seem to learn something new every time I read one of your posts.
Anyways, I shall stipulate a 20 week time period and lets say that even the Poliquin vitamin C protocol is on the table. You name it its golden - except for deca because he still loves his cock (although probably not his balls).
Here is my real shot at it.
5 IU HGH ED at site
60 mcg IGF-1 split into two doses AM and PM at site
I would add MGF but I don’t know the doses so its off the table for me.
700mg/wk TestE split into EOD doses
250 IU HCG EOD of course
1 mg Adex EOD
400 mg/wk Trenbolone
20mg Anavar ED
maybe some hydrocortisone shots a week for the inflammation…Decadron comes to mind
Lots of leg extensions LOL
I thought the plan was to rehab him with chemical assistance, not turn him into a 210lbs, vascular beast, with a gimpy leg, hahaha!
My own take would be a much longer duration, but lower dose protocol, as it takes time (if it’s even possible) to activate satellite cells, and increase myonucleosis in still-working muscle.
My protocol would be at least 6 months of:
*2 iu GH ED, split am and lunchtime.
*30mcg IGF1, split 12 hours apart (7am/7pm , etc.) Partly for its neuroprotective effects.
*400mg test E / wk in 2 shots.
*250iu HCG, 2 times per week, or HMG if available.
*Possible use of an AI, but only as needed, and only 0.25mg ED or EOD.
*1ml Alflutops ED for 2 weeks, then E3D/E5D for 3-6 months. This is to counter the degenerative cartilage changes taking place in his hip etc from walking with that cane. Follow this with a ‘standard’ joint health formula.
Having said all this though, if he didn’t start seeing improvement rather quickly, then I would probably be tempted to discontinue the protocol, as I wouldn’t want him packing on beef, if he can’t support it with both legs. That would just accelerate the degeneration in his supporting hip, ankle, shoulder, etc.
My rehab program would consist of a lot of open chain exercises, and proprioceptive exercise to co-ordinate activity between agonist and synergist (McGill 2002), and also to strengthen his lateral stabilisers.
I didn’t actually see the particular episode you refer to, but I thought his limp was from some obscure neurological deficit. I take it he then got a DVT in his lower leg or what? Is he on anti-clotting meds?
Its the episode where he is forced to lecture some Princeton medical students. I think it is in the first season possibly. What happens is that he is playing golf and he get s massive leg pains. He runs to the hospital and the docs there think it is drug seeking behavior. They literally have a 4 inch needle with pain meds in it and House grabs it and jabs it into his leg. He returns with even more pain and this time with renal failure. Cutting to the chase- it turns out that the clot in his leg has started muscle cell death and the resulting myoglobulin overload is destroying his kidneys. They want to remove his leg he says no remove the clot , they remove it. He suffers from all the cytokines flowing into his sytem and goes into tachycardia and asks to be put into a barbituate coma so he sleeps away the worst portion of it. They agree. Thats when his dumbass girlfriend intervenes. Cuddy gets her to agree to remove the damaged muscle tissue but he ends up still in a lot of pain. The scenario I envisioned is that they do not take away the muscle tissue and he survives the barbituate coma.
The neurological part you were thinking of is the episode where he gets shot and Cuddy gives him Ketamine thinking that the drug will reboot his brain removing the pain associated with his bum leg.
What the frack is HMG? Wikipedia needs an update on that page.
