About 4 months ago, I began feeling pain just below to the right bicep. It was diagnosed from my doc as a partial tear to the distal tendon that connects the right bicep (seems like the same injury as victw65 in previous discussion). I got an MRI and no surgery required, just instructed to not use my bicep for a minimum of 6 months. Anyways it is healing, but very, very slowly. My question is, I heard that HGH helps in healing tendons and ligaments permanently as opposed to just covering up the pain like a cortisone shot. Can anyone give me advise on this? Also, what would be the best iu dose to take to aggressively heal? Also, are there any other supplements that also aggressively heal tendons? (test, etc). I can't take much more of only exercising from the abs down. I'm willing to do whatever permanently heals the fastest. Thanks.
Tendon repair is an off label use, so you won't be doing this under the supervision of a physician.
HGH carries plenty of risks and there are too many potential unknowns.
You aren't in a situation that would necessitate taking such a dramatic steps. Be patient.

Thanks for the advise. I've heard from some friends that hgh is very good at healing tendons and ligaments. I've completely stopped excercising the upper body and stopped any activity that could aggrevate the tendon. it's been 4 months now and i'm about 80% healed. however, i feel like i'm not improving anymore. I've gotton the mri, physical therapy, stretches, heat pads, etc. i've heard it can take 6months to a year or more to completely heal a tendon. I can't be much more patient. I've broken bones that have healed sooner. I've heard hgh heals tendons faster than just rest, but I don't know the best dose. I've heard 2iu, 4iu, and even 6iu. Any ideas for rehabilitating doses? Thanks.
i forgot to comment on one thing also. Mild chronic pain in my lower back and shoulder is disappearing also I hope that sicks after im done with the gh
Anyway- HGH can help heal tendons- HGH, anabolic steroids, etc. all speed up tissue synthesis and promote healing.
The biggest issue with tendon repair, however, is the buildup of scar tissue that reduces elasticity and makes the tendon prone to re-tearing- this is the MAIN reason that tendons appear to "heal" slowly- the tissue itself is repaired but imperfect, and will re-tear quite regularly. HGH will do nothing to change this.
I realize this is an old post, but figured I'd throw in a few more cents....

Thank you again for the advice. I really appreciate it.
I think the length of time it takes injured connective tissue to heal is more a function of its avascular status than anything.
Anyway, GH may help with connective tissue regeneration, but I am not convinced to the degree with which it speeds things up especially if you have not already been using it for some time.
