strengthening my back after fusion

I am 1 year out from my last back surgery. I have had a total of 8 and this last one resulted in my back being fused from 10 levels down. I also have a pain pump implant that helps me cope with the chronic pain. I have recently been told that weight lifting with HGH injections (Dr. supervised) will significantly help me gain muscle as well as aid with the overall healing following back surgery.
Does anyone have any knowledge of using HGH?


  • and I would not consider it. What type of doctor is "recommending" the use of HGH to you?
  • It has not been recommended to me. In a recent conversation with the PA who works for the neurosurgeon who did my last surgery I was told that the use of HGH had shown the ability to help bone heal much faster. I had never heard of it before and have not spoken to the doctor about it. I was just wondering if anyone else had heard anything about HGH and back surgery rehab.
