T-Replacement Without Lifting...?!


#1

Hi.
First off, I can't lift any more because of physical disability. That said, I've used narcotic opoid analgesics for about 5 years, and this has lowered my serum T. So the doc puts me on 300mg(?) T-Cypionate, IM Injected, every 2-4 weeks.

My question is this:
What physical effects could this have on me, given that I'm NOT going to build lean body mass??

Any ideas?

Thanks for your input.

I'm pretty sure you'll still see an increase in lean body mass. After HRT, one of the more common medical uses of steroids is to help terminally ill patients keep bodyweight(muscle) on and those patients certainly aren't gym rats.
