I was unfortunate enough to fracture my patella (knee cap) in a fall from height onto a road 4.5 weeks ago. The fracture was comminuted (bone was in 3 pieces) and had to be surgically wired back together.
I was placed in a leg splint (to keep my leg straight) and told to keep it on for 6 weeks so to let the bone heal. Before the injury and since i was 18 i have been a recreational trainer.
In order to from this injury completely and speedily i researched supplements that enhance bone and ligament repair (I am a R&D scientist for a biotech company so i take my science pretty seriously!). Anyways whilst searching through the scientific journals i noticed a indian herb called that had shown significant increases in healing times (up to 55%) on fractures.
I have since purchased USPlabs supercissusRX and I am dosing at 2x caps 10mins bofore breakfast and 2x caps 10 mins before last meal of the day.
I will log my experience with the supplement along with x rays of the bone at various stages as well as feedback from my orthopaedic surgeon and throughout my long physio.
As i cant bend my leg for a long time and my quad has stopped firing and getting strength back in that muscle as well as the damaged ligaments around the knee joint will be the most important aspects of my recovery besides getting the fracture healed back to full strength
anyways being the skeptical scientist that I am i have read only good things about cissus on here and the other boards.
My diet will be high in protein and I also take 15g of , 1.5g of glucosamine and 3gof calcium carbonate per day.
I will get my pre and 2 weeks post x rays posted on here in the next few days and am scheduled to have another x ray monday of next week.
I have been on the cissus for 11 days now
