About 3 months ago I suffered a serious injury while playing soccer. I tore
the muscle in my right calf, tore the cartilage in my right knee and knocked
a piece of the joint surface off of the femur (thigh bone) at the knee. I had
a cast on my leg for a while and was on crutches. The calf was swollen to
twice its normal size and the skin was so tight you could not press it in. My
knee turned black and blue all the way around and it extended up my thigh
about 4 inches and down to my ankle.
The orthopedic surgeon believed surgery was necessary and we even discussed
the best time to do it. Without the surgery, he said he did not think I would
be able to run straight ahead normally or without pain.
This injury occurred 2 days after I received my first bottle of IGF-1 spray.
I started using it in high doses, probably 15 sprays per day. I also
re-started using the Somatine, 2 to 3 scoups twice a day. Both of these are
much higher than recommended, but I neede some extra help.
The first 3 weeks after the injury were pretty bad as I have described above.
I had to sleep in a reclining chair so I could prop my foot and leg up on a
couple of pillows to prevent further swelling and pain. Even turning over in
bed hurt, a lot. Although some of the pain and swelling gradually went away,
itreally did not seem like I was getting much better. Both the knee and calf
were still causing major problems.
Then about the beginning of the 4th week, something happened. I was still
using the IGF and Somatine as described about. Over the course of about 2
days, it suddenly started to get better, quickly. It was not a situation of
gradual improvement, but rather dramatic, daily improvement.
I realize that this is about the time a soft tissue injury of this general
type would show improvement, but my injury was so severe that surgery was
anticipated. It was not the sort of thing that would miraculously get better.
If it did get better it would takes months, gradual reintroduction of
walking, rehabilitation exercises, etc.
I could, liiterally, feel my injury healing. I have played contact sports all
my life. I have had 17 fractures and countless other bruises and sprains. I
know how I heal and what to expect. What I was expecting was this - I would
probably need surgery, and, if I did not have the surgery, I would be out of
action until the end of the year. My realistic goal was to be able to play
indoor soccer in the second session, which starts in January.
So anyway, suddenly it starts to heal. Within 2 weeks it is healed. 5 weeks
after the injury I am able to play soccer again, no limp, no pain. This is
nothing short of unbelievable - as I mentioned, I have had many injuries, and
I have never experienced anything like this healing.
I have to attribute a good bit of it to the IGF-1 spray, especially in
conjunction with the Somatine. The IGF stimulated my body to repair, and the Somatine supplied the needed nutrients.
