I would like to lay out some info and ask questions before I go too far off the rails.
To begin with I'm only 48 and this all started 13 years ago with prostate issues every 5 years.
2 years ago I began Flomax after another flare up left me unable to completely empty the bladder, but no big deal.
Luckily the Androgel has had no effect on that thus far and hopefully it doesn't .
Over the years I've lost a lot of muscle mass, energy ,etc and asked my Doc to check my basics.
Before starting Androgel : T- 375 ng/dl , FSH-9.0 mIU/mL, LH-1.1 mIU/mL, E2-39 pg/mL.
One month at 2 pumps a day :T-201 ng/dl , FSH-6.3 mIU/mL, LH-.6 mIU/mL, E2-229 pg/mL (WTF?)
Second month at 3 pumps a day :T-387 ng/dl , FSH-4.8 mIU/mL, LH-.3 mIU/mL, E2-101 pg/mL
Oddly enough it cleared the mental fog at first, but now I'm crashing hard and feel as bad as before.
My next labs are not until next month at the current 3 pumps a day, but I don't want to continue this way.
Do I need to can the gel and switch to shots along with and AI, or just ask for an AI to supplement the Gel ?
Any advise to get me on the correct path would be great.
