Steroids After Full Spine Surgery?


#1

Hey guys, first post. I’m a 19y/o male with scoliosis. I will most likely be undergoing correction for it this year.

What this means is I’ll be having my back cut open from my neck to my hips along my spine.

They’ll fix rods to either side of my spine to straighten it. Similar to braces for teeth.

Also means I’ll be recovering for a whole year afterwards. No gym time.

So I’m wondering if you guys could help w a few things.

First, let me say that I have never taken steroids nor do I know very much about them at all.

I’d like to know if you guys think steroids would be helpful in decreasing healing time?

Also, if they would help me keep from losing my gains that’d be great! haha

If so, what would I be looking for? Keep in mind I’m a total noob.

Thanks so much for taking time to read, I appreciate it!
