I agree no concerns about TRT after this surgery. I had a ruptured quad tendon which sucked balls. Once I could walk again without a straight leg brace (3 horribly painful months) and was able to lift again for a couple months, I started up with a *reasonable* amount of test as well as HGH, about 500mg test/week, I forget how much HGH but it was minimal. Things definitely progressed quicker after adding both in, but it's hard for me to quantify whether they sped things up/improved things or whether they had any impact at all as there was muscle memory involved after being completely sedentary mostly laying in bed for months. After a tendon rupture repair (can't recall exactly your injury) the attachment to your bone is probably stronger than it was before your injury. If it was a tear and not a rupture from the bone, I don't know if that would be the case. You do need to be careful about being too aggressive with supplements after such a surgery, as if the muscle strength increases significantly faster than the tendon strength, then you risk a reinjury, and I know you don't want that. All this extra BS having been said....true TRT is no problem and you probably should have been doing it all along anyway. You don't mention whether your online test doc did a blood test before prescribing TRT....if not, then you should absolutely have your levels tested before starting, because if your levels are not low, TRT is not really TRT....it's supplementation and can suppress your natural test.
