HCG is a highly beneficial hormone in fertility stimulation and in the treatment of low testosterone. In fact, it is rapidly becoming an integral part of many low testosterone treatment plans. For the anabolic steroid user, the performance enhancing athlete, HCG can be beneficial but it can also be damaging. Many get very carried away with on cycle use and lead themselves to an early low testosterone condition. Granted, most men will benefit from testosterone therapy at some point in their life regardless, but many steroid users end up requiring sooner and often due to improper HCG use. The hormone can be beneficial but use must be kept moderate and monitored.
The benefits from the first shot only lasted 2 weeks. The second and third set of injections lasted about 90 days. In November, I was ready to have surgery. My EMG and nerve conduction tests proved that the nerves were "sleeping" before I was. After another MRI, the neurosurgeon said I was a candidate for surgery but I was not able to get the endoscopic type surgery that is less invasive. I would have an incision about 6-8" long. Along with removing the herniation, they would have to increase the size of the hole where the nerve roots were going through.
