Hey guys, Im a complete newbie, I found this site and figured someone would help me. I’ll keep this brief.
In the past 2 years, my sex drive has been slowing down, and so have my body-building gains. I became less able to concentrate, etc … I researched the matter a little and found low T to be a good suspect.
I went to my general doctor, he took a simple metabolic blood panel, along with total testosterone. Everything turned out normal … except Testosterone was 420 on a range of 350 - 1100.
I dont drink, I dont smoke, and I hit the gym 4 times a week. It seems obvious to me that 450 is not right. I couldnt find any possible explanation for this.
After doing way more googleing than is humanly possible, I came across the “Varicocele”. I checked myself and I have one (on the left side, as expected) for sure! Uh-oh, could this be the problem?
Now Im super worried about this. Can a varicocele damage the testitcle beyond repair? I already scheduled a doctors appt. to get more tests done … and I do NOT want to go on TRT.
Does anyone have any advice on what tests to get? How about experience with this kind of situation?? Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
