First of all, I've done some searching around with poor or negative results (such as Anabolic Steroids: Tendon Ruptures ) but I'm looking mostly for anecdotal evidence of anabolics users.
What I'm wondering is whether anabolics have any POSITIVE effects on tendons, such as increased strength, faster healing, etc. The post I found, linked above, indicates that steroids would cause more ruptures in general, and a reduction in flexibility (stretchability?). Can anyone support or argue with this statement?
The reason I ask is because I've been suffering from patellar tendonitis for some months and plan to run an e-stane cycle regardless -- obviously I can't hit legs hard, especially squats, but I've been putting it off for a really long time and want to go ahead with it. My question is this: if I continue doing what I've been doing; dosing Cissus, doing physiotherapy and wearing orthotics, will e-stane have any effect on the healing of my tendonitis? If so, what?
Thanks to any and all opinions.
