    Are you talking about just testosterone? Was your level low?

    Yes, many guys with SCI discover their testosterone is low after injury and supplement with testosterone. My Dad was on testosterone before his injury and continues it afterwards.

    Keep going with the exercise. It is easy to start slipping, and as you can see, the results can be quick and dramatic. And yes, testosterone might help.
