well last night i was playing basketball and i jumped to dunk the basketball and when i landed it felt like something weird happened, like i got shot in the foot or something. i went to the doctor the next day and they said i tore my achilles tendon. i'm looking at 6 months recovery, what can i take to speed healing?

OJ howard just blew his achilles out yesterday. pro athletes need a full year to recover from it and they have access to the best doctors in the world. my advice is get a lot of opinions from a legit sports doc before you do anything

I say the same thing over and over but what you need to do is give it time. The worst thing you can do is try to find a way to rush back too early and risk injuring it again or slowing your recovery. Give it the proper time off and when you are ready to get back to it muscle memory will kick in.

Just give it time or else you'll set yourself back further. Ostarine and mk677 can help but time is what you need here and rest

I ruptured my Achilles back in 2009. Had 3 different surgeries over the course of 5 years.

The Achilles lacks blood flow which aids in healing process.

I was unable to stand on my own (unsupported) for 6 months, don’t be surprised if your rehab takes much longer than expected.

Do not take any drugs other than what’s prescribed from your ortho and ankle specialist.

DM me if you have any questions. It’s a really significant injury but you can come back stronger than before. Just keep pushing bro!

They gave me a bunch of drugs to take and even shots. Should I use them?
