    Back Surgery






    Found out this morning that my back is not getting better I have bulged disk pushing on my sciatic nerve. I am having surgery end of the month. I have been running 3ed var and Test cyp weekly. Not wanting to loose my gains. Would you guys stop the cycle for 6 weeks? or just keep running the var? I stay on test never come off. I figure I will keep the diet in check but not lifting at all..

    I would think var would help me heal faster but not sure if I should take a oral that long. Ideas?

    I had the exact same thing, just had my back surgery on Dec. 16, 2013

    It took 4 weeks to heal, I am at almost 6 weeks now and back to training.

    So sounds like you had good luck with it if you back to training that soon... Did you have a microdiscectomy?

    discectomy? ex had it done...top surgeon..great result initially..lots of surgery thereafter
    current hubs had the same thing...went to a chiro everyday for a month..turned down cortisone injections..he's 100% again
    not saying one is better than the other...just my observation

    the anesthesiologist will probably wonder why your rbc is high..I'd drop the var as soon as you can. depending on the dose your liver could be under a bit of stress and its best to give it a chance to heal...end of this month or next? I'd stay on the cyp

    I think so, my S1/L5 was herniated pushing into my spinal cord and sciatic nerve.

    Mine is l4 l5 doing the same thing.
    This what they are planning on doing
    http://www.spine-health.com/treatmen...-spine-surgery
    I tried everything up to now. Chiro , Physical Therapy, Acupuncture, Deep tissue massage, I did the shots also no help.
    I will get off all the gear this weekend just stay on Test cyp, AI and Orange Triad.

    Should I start the var back up after surgery or wait until I am cleared to train again. I am planning on running Tren a / Test cyp cycle when I am back at it.

    Had mine done in '94 it was just discetomy, no micro back then. I went from feeling 90 years old to pretty close to normal. There are success stories as well as the opposite. Wish you well!
