    As in drugs? Are you already using drugs / have a history of steroid use?

    Steroids can have a negative effect on tendon health and strength. A peptide like hgh or one that increases the release of your natural circulating gh may be of use.

    I would advise physio and eating well.

    Anecdotally collagen gets good results, as does cissus. Avoid steroid use.

    Ok no worries Phil.

    In what form is collagen used Phil? Any studies yet?

    OK thanks for that might have a look into them. I have used steroids yes, I do think that was the cause of my injury. I'm starting to use abit if test next week as its been about 6 months now, nothing heavy, just a bit with cardio mainly to loose the weight I've gained from nt training

    johnny read this
    http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/Steriods-for-tendon-repair-m4596029.aspx - it's a decent summary.
     
    If you want a successful heal, avoid test.
     
    Published articles well document the negative effects of steroids on tendon structural adaptations and ability to withstand loads.

    Thanks for that mate, I think Im going to go for it anyway as that read said anything up to 200mg is fine, and at the most I was going to do 300mg, with var and t3, its basicly to stop the t3 eating my muscle, its been a good 7 months scince my op and I'm not planning on heavy weights for another year, this is just going to be done with mainly cardio and isometrics, what you think mate would this be ok

    Collagen hydrolysate usually I believe. Not seen any studies that would be worth the paper they're written on yet! Mostly the research has focused on collagen and cartilage healing/inflammation in arthritis, and anti-wrinkle; both of which seem to suggest some benefit.
     
    There's a reasonable incomplete summary here:http://examine.com/supplements/Type+II+Collagen/
     
    The anecdotal "evidence" that I've got is from a few guys in the strongman world, some natural and some not, that especially after intense training and competitions their tendons and joints recover faster back to baseline and feel more flexible. They also report improved healing times in injuries such as lateral epicondylitis.
