just had gyno removed
sorry if this is the wrong thread but i didn't know exactly where to post this..
anyway, i got my gyno removed yesterday, they left the epidural in my spine and an iv in my hand until tomorrow for unknown reasons so im up posting this at 4 in the morning because i can't sleep with this epidural pain.
i've had gyno since i was 12 from puberty, i guess the test kicked in too rapidly or something... and i'm glad to have finally gotten rid of this curse after all these years.
now my only problem is that i can't work out at all for 6 weeks... according to the doc, whom in my experience isn't very smart considering he thought all my stretch marks were indicators of steroid use, he also couldn't tell the difference between fat and gyno until he couldn't lipo it out and to make the incisions, but otherwise i think he did a good job.
i just wanted to know if there's any way to prevent muscle loss during this month and a half of not being able to do nothing? muscle relaxants? i'm planning on going to mexico to buy some flexeril just so i can stay asleep with this pain. ghrp2 and cjc1295 for healing of the incision?
thanks in advance guys, i truly appreciate the feedback.

I would just watch your diet and do cardio. Stay lean than once you start lifting again you'll be in good shape.

Doctors are conservative I had bilateral gyno removed and I was back in the gym within 3 weeks. It's only 3 weeks youl lose a bit of strength but gain it right back consider it a recovery period for your body. Lay off the cardio IMO, increase protein and fat while slightly reducing carbs. Use some bulk leucine and lay off the peptides, let your body do its own natural healing trust me on that one.Originally Posted by mylo

Definitely take it easy, man. Just listen to the docs and ease back into anything physical. As was pointed out, keep the diet in check and just be active however you can be (walking, etc.). You'll lose some strength, but over that period of time, it shouldn't be anything exponential.

so i've had this bandage on around my chest for the past 3 days and i've noticed that my chest is starting to cave in O.O
i mean, the bandage is squeezing my chest in and leaving a line from where it compresses my pecs...
should i be worried?s

would most likely be your chest is swelling from the op, having the tight bandage on, everything is swelling around it, i had a compression vest on for 3-4 weeks and had the similair thing when i took it off to shower it had made everything flat and where it hug around my arms you could see the indent, also where it clipped up down the centre of my chest and stomach it left indents, nothing to worry about it all goes away once the swelling subsides, obviously make sure its not so tight its cutting your circulation off, but they did tell me to keep pressure on it as it helps everything heal up nice and tight and also speeds the healing up.
Did they give u a compression vest?

doc said i could buy one which i will tonight or tomorrow online, but he said the bandage would do fine on it's own, as long as it's tight enough. my gyno wasn't VERY bad, he said the skin will contract, and considering i might run metha drol extreme, i'm planning on bulking my chest up as my arms are too big for my chest

lol, yeah all the best with everything!
i been swithching up my chest routine to fill out the chest area, going well so far, just awesome to where a shirt and not see the point of the nipples. i made the mistake of running a few cycles with no AI or pct, so i paid the price literally, all good now though. I been using dunbells for chest instead of barbell and i feel the pump a whole lot more for a few days after..loving it!
