Decca and weight gain

Nov 20, 2008

4 weeks ago I was given decca in injection form for severe shoulder and elbow pain, It was approx. 1 cc. Within 2 weeks I gained 10-15 lbs. Will I loose it soon? I feel bloated after every meal. I am a 50 yr. old post menopausal female and always weighed between 140-143 lbs. Now I am 155 lbs. and hate it. Tell me this weight will go away as fast as it came on!

Response from Mr. Vergel

I think you have it wrong. It is not deca. I bet your got a corticoid steroid injection, not an anabolic steroid injection.

Corticoid steroids are great anti inflammatory agents but they cause water retention and rapid weight gain. I have had that problem myself but it tends to go away on its own.


any other supplements
green tea and Atripla
