Would HGH have sped my recovery? Possibly. But I know it would not have prevented the buildup of scar tissue that restricted my ROM before the surgical release.[/quote]
How do you know this?[/quote]
In my case, the buildup of scar tissue was due to the limited movement prescribed after surgery, by my surgeon’s own admission. A much more vigorous, athletic PT protocol would have prevented scar tissue from forming to the extent that it did.
HGH will stimulate muscle growth, and I find personal benefit from its use in many other ways, but it does not dissolve scar tissue after the fact, the problem facing the original poster.
“After the fact” is different from your original claim. How do you know that it would not have stopped or minimized the creation of scar tissue during healing?
Have there been studies showing this? I’m looking through any literature I can find on the subject.
Or is it simply that mechanistically, HGH would have no effect on minimizing scar tissue formation during healing?
