Hello everyone I’m currently 19 years old and I’ve had a herniated disc (L4-L5) for the past 3 years. I got this injury playing lacrosse and having years of bad posture previously. I had surgery (a microdisectomy) nearly 2 years ago, and have had 8 epidural injections thus far.
I have obviously not healed, and am becoming quite desperate for some kind of relief because - not to sound to dramatic - I really can’t live with this anymore. I had to withdraw from my college last year (a top school), and I have not been able to go back due to my inability to sit and study for long periods of time. Basically this is ruining my life.
I’ve been researching steroids recently, reading other forums, a steroid book I bought, various internet articles, etc. However, this seems to be the most intelligent forum on the matter and I’d like to present my case for your opinion. I want to try a cycle, probably just one cycle (my back has been improving a little bit since I quit smoking and using all drugs, but does not seem anywhere near full recovery).
What would you recommend? I was thinking Nandrolone Decanoate / Testosterone Enanthate stack for 12 weeks, with dosages about 100-200mg of each per week. I’m going to include an anti-aromatizer (probably nolvadex), an anti-estrogen (probably clomid), and perhaps a DHT-blocker. I’d like your opinion on the doses I should take, or if I should try a different stack entirely.
The reason I chose those two are because of Deca’s reputation as a good aid in injury recovery and the fact that it increases water in your joints, which is very important for disc problems.
Thanks for any advice and help.
