if the problem is joint pain the deca durabolin (Nandrolone) steroid could help – but alot of times in the shoulder it is muscle related, or tendons. BUT…
Deca increases the synovial fluid in the bursas between our joints. So the relief from joint pain is actually more cushion. As far as healing properties versus masking symptoms? I think that if you use deca during a cycle and have bad joints, and during cycle joint pain is alleviated, then it is like buying some time for your joints, and wont necessarily make them any worse, but when you come off of deca, synovial fluids decrease, and your back to where you were except with a little more gains in strength and size. So when you do your next cycle that does NOT include deca, your joints will suffer a little more because you are adding more stress to them via new strength gains.
Yes, Nandrolone is oilbased and can be detected in the body for up to 18months. Impotency or deca dick occurs often while on the drug, a reason why many bodybuilders avoid it, although it was one of Arnold Schwarzenegger favourites. Some bodybuilders use it because it doesn't aromatise as other androgenic compounds do which increases DHT and hairloss. Those who end a cycle often do it with HCG so the bodies own t-production gets going again.
But as you say its a risk! I dont believe that a few low dosed cycles are that bad as some would want it to be. Nandrolone is often cycled for 4-8week with 2ml/ kg of total bodymass. I myself suffer from bursitis, tendinitis, muscle scarring on several places and have so for 5-6 years. Im not gonna cycle with roids, but it is very very tempting because the pain is annoying, uncomfortable and nothing seems to work. It has taken that much of time and its still there bugging me, there doesn't seem to be a cure.
Hi Ben. Thanks for all the amazing info week after week. I love your podcasts and articles. I would love your opinion on using BPC 157 injections as you describe in the article for a very persistent case of posterior tibial tendonitis. Even with quite a bit of rest, using a walking boot, eating anti inflammatory, and working on correcting running form/strengthening, this tendonitis has plagued me for three months now. I am an avid distance runner and need this to heal? Please let me know if you think this could be effective, and if you would recommend any changes to your protocol in the article. Also, how much would my results be diminished if I used the bps orally not subcutaneously? Lastly, where should I inject the bpc if I go that route? I have pain mostly right around the malleolus, but often into my arch and above the malleolus along the tendon. thanks again
