« on: May 14, 2007, 01:47:33 PM »
Yeh, i know we've been there already, we diuscussed it already , but still , the info is  spread in this forum all over , so ...
Anyway , as you remember or not I consider taking serostim, I visited my dr, yestersay , and he told me 2 of his patinets took if , for one it pretty help get one mass back to the leggs, for the other it didn't.
For those of you who tried it , can u please advice if it only helped you bring back some of the lost muscle in the leggs or did it also helped with the accumulated fat i the belly, back , etc ? I suffer from both ... and i wanted to know, incase it will have good impact on me , will it effect both ?

I did not have the accumulated fat or back issues.  I have always been somewhat fit and worked out regularly.  The serostim took my leg muscular development to a new level.  It was great.  It produced some greater muscular mass for my arms and chest but the legs were where I saw the greatest impact.  I thought serostim was great and produced great results.  I have been able to maintain the results without it.  I used it for a 6 week period about 8 years ago.  I would not hesitate to use again if needed.

first of all if you can get your insurance to approve the serostim that would be great ,it is extremely expensive!!I know several guys who do take it and they have developed side effects such as enlarged foreheads,stomachs and swollen feet.but i do have to admit that the muscle gain is pretty impressive!!

Hi guys... I have been using the Serostim for nearly 10 yrs.. at first it was to combat the "wasting"  but as that stopped and I started to go to the gym regularly I cut back to three times a week before each session at the gym... I am and have always been "slim"  not a "muscular " person but came back from skin covered skeleton to a reasonable shape with actual muscles in legs / arms / shoulders....still very much on the slender side of body styles......I have had no particular bad reactions.....even when using every day.......yes my insurance covers it and my DR has to certify that to  Insurance once a year....It is very expensive even for the insurance company at their negotiated rates......each "kit"  (seven shots)  cost about $700...

BTW  be careful of any "bargains"  there was  period that this was being faked and sold as the real stuff...totally useless

remember the good times...honor the past but don't live there
