Y’all remember when I ran some crazy cycles of growth? It was damn near a decade ago now, with sersostim and generics, and I experimented with a 10 day pyramid that went up to like 80iu a day and back down.
Also ran 10-20iu/day for a couple months around that time...
I’ve always been big with big hands and feet, but, I went from a 13 to a 14-15wide and my wedding band has never fit since. But aside from having to give away some of my favorite shoes/boots, that was no big deal.
My jaw, on the other hand... I went from a normal bite to a 1/4” underbite. 100% permanent. Went to the dentist about 7 years ago and said “yo, my teeth don’t match up anymore and I feel like my face is crooked when I smile.”
We did a bunch of bite tests and pictures and xrays, and my entire bottom jaw had “shifted” (I wanted to explain that it had probably just grown rather than moved, but would have tipped my hand). Dental X-rays from the beginning of my service were perfectly normal. Exit exam 5 years later (and after gh abuse) showed a pretty severe underbite (not sure how much this affects my sleep apnea).
Bottom line, after another 6-7 years of zero gh use, nothing has or ever will return to normal. My teeth have literally filed themselves differently after years of chewing with the new alignment and now FEEL like they match up well, but when I smile and move my beard aside, still look like a fucking bulldog. And I used to be attractive.
And yet with all of that said, I’m going to be running gh again soon. Therapeutically this time.
