KSman, Gracias for the much appreciated information. I feel I'm pretty much on your recommended prostate regimen as I take D3 10,000iu daily, kelp tablet with 225mcg daily and 1000iu vitamin Csometimes more. I also have tinkered with saw palmetto, beta sisterol, stinging nettle and others for urinary difficulties without much success.
I am anxious to start a trt protocol around injections. Thinking of starting 75mg cypionate twice weekly, 250iu hcg twice weekly as well as your anastrozole recommendation. In the meantime I have started a dab of progesterone cream daily which has just made me sleep longer but more tired it seems. Would anyone recommend to keep doing this or does this do more harm than good?
I will post my most recent results for the labs you requested and maybe they can shed some more light on my situation.
TT=369 240 - 950 ng/dL (1/19/16)
FT=8.86 1.39 - 17.69 ng/dL (1/19/16)
E2=<25 8-43 pg/ml (1/19/16)
prolactin=10.2 4.0-15.2 ng/mL (9/23/15)
AST/ALT=29/30 <41 U/L (8/19/15)
TSH=.77 0.27-4.20 uIU/mL (9/18/15)
fT3=3.1 2.0-4.4 pg/mL (9/18/15)
fT4=1.21 0.90-1.70 ng/dL (9/18/15)
CBC with hematocrit all come within range with hematocrit and hemoglobin on low end of range
PSA=2 <4.0 ng/mL (1/19/16)
CRP=.7 0.0 - 0.8 mg/dL (3/5/14)
homocysteine never had done
AM cortisol haven't had measured in years but was normal in 2011
DHEA-SULFATE=287 65 - 334 mcg/dL (1/19/16)
No it doesn't appear a culture for bacteria was performed but have tried a short course of antibiotics without much success but it might not be a bad idea to revisit.
Current RX meds are Lamictal 300/mg daily to help mood disorder (been on for 4 years), cialis 5mg daily for bph and erectile issues (started beginning of 2015) and Abmien 12.5ER nightly (over a decade). I have crazy sleep issues possibly due to my tumor.
I hope this provides a bit more insight. I'm also thinking of starting Flomax, have a script, would you recommend or should I hold off? I'm thinking that TRT will worsen my urinary symptoms and this may be a preemptive attempt to discourage this.
Also, my PSA rose the highest with ED dosing of HCG at 125iu. Could the spacing of dosing be a factor? For instance, have you heard of dosing frequency affecting PSA positively or negatively?
All information is welcome. Even if its' "you're just screwed". Thanks kids.
