Steroids and Injury Recovery

Hello,

I had knee surgery for a discoid menicus almost 4 months ago
I went to the physio 2 days post op and have worked hard every few days to get my range of motion and strength back and it just hasn’t recovered the best.

I’m 5 10" and play basketball, before surgery I could easily dunk a basketball, my 1RM squat was 165kg and I’m no stranger to the weight room.

Right now I’m squating 60kgx1 and that is really hard to get up, I struggle with body weight lunges and it swells up really easily and I find it hard to even run 1 mile.

Can anything in the steroids or HGH help me with my recovery and/or getting my athletiscism back?

To me, it sounds like you or most proabably you PT fucked up the rehab. Sure, Nandrolone and HGH will help, but if you continue with the same PT, nothing will help.
