Dr. David :

what other questions do you have?

Dr. David :

did you have more questions about steroids and scar tissue?

JACUSTOMER-7phz4a3u- : Hi my question is about anabolic steroids I have a large abdominal scar that goes from just below my rib cage down to about 3 inches below my belly button from op I had 7 years ago.Two years ago I had to have a operation because of internal scar tissue on my small intestine at the time of this scar tissue issue I was taking sust 250 a steroid because I'm a body builder my question is would anabolic steroids cause scar tissue to grow faster or would steroids cause me to have more issues with adhesion internal scar tissue ?
Dr. David :

no, taking more steroids would not cause more scar tissue and will not cause scar tissue to grow faster.

Dr. David :

internal adhesions can get worse on their own over time with or without steroids in your system.

Dr. David :

steroid injections into scars at time of surgery is used to decrease scar tissue formation in patients who have a history of excessive scar tissue formation.

Dr. David :

I believe other experts here have also told you that your steroid use for your body building will not cause worse scar tissue.

Dr. David :

let me know if you have other questions.
