Brief Answer:
I want to know more detail about your illness

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have read your question but I can not understand it fully. Human growth hormone is usually not used for maxillofascial injury. Can you give me detail account of your illness, for example when did you hurt?
2. What problem you are having now?
3. Are you feeling weight loss and weakness?
Please answer these questions. I will try my best to help you.
Thanks

Problems are painful swelling from a triple mandibular fracture sustained in 2007, it has gotten worse with my sparring sessions as I am now training to become a professional boxer. The jaw does feel very weak when pressure is applied and am worried that it may be too weak to proceed in a full contact sporting arena.

Brief Answer:
I would suggest you to get a CT scan of mandible

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Fracture which occurred 7 years ago should not cause such problem after such a long time if it was healed properly. I would not recommend growth hormone for this issue. I would suggest you to get a CT scan to see if there is any re injury at that site or if there is abnormal union.
I would also suggest you to show to a maxillo fascial expert to find out the cause of weakness of jaw.
Please let me know if you want to ask any other follow up questions.
Thanks
