I did definitely catch an ear full for sure. I had been warned from a younger doctor, in most cases Doctors from the older generation are very set in there ways, and do not have much experience in the Testosterone/TRT department, and frown upon it bigtime.
That warning was an understatement. Immidiately I was warned of a stroke and/or a Heart attack. He then told me that this is a controlled substance, and I can go to jail. He then told me that most likely I am getting junk, and paying money for nothing. I then let him know my last test results should be on file, and Testosterone was over the lab maximum of 1500.
.That set a whole new can of shit, with him telling me that I am for sure setting myself up to die. Then gave me a lecture of excess Testosterone causing Heart problems and death.
On the plus side, he did set up the lipid test and wbc testing. I had them told him I dropped my dosage, and wanted to see my T levels. So he did sign off to have the testosterone as well. Which wasn’t too much of a lie. I had pinned the previous Monday, and scheduled my Labs for Saturday (5 days from pinning) I wanted to see how my T levels were at that stage.
I just received my Labs (able to view labs online). Lipids and WBC’s had changed slightly since starting the Sust, but still within safe range for being considered healthy. My bad Cholesterol went up a bit, and the good dropped slightly. Remarkably - my Test levels were still above the peak mark of 1500, which was a bit of a shocker. Being on for this long, signs of my natural testosterone has deminished (Peaches to Grapes syndrome😂). I had truly thought my Test level by day 5 would have been under the 1500 mark, but not the case. It sort of has me considering pinning at a 6 day interval, rather than the normal 3.5.
In any event, I received a call yesterday evening from the Doctors office. They told me that my T levels were at dangerous levels, and I need to stop the injections immidiately.
Knowing I had already scanned over my lab results, I then asked how my lipids and Blood count came out. She everything was nearly perfect, but the Testosterone was dangerously high.
Knowing at this point they were pretty much talking out of there Ass, I couldn’t help asking the obvious question. If I were to be taking Testosterone at dangerous levels, wouldn’t my blood count levels and lipids show concerning numbers? After a short pause they reminded me that my test results did change since pinning began. I then asked if any of the numbers had drastically changed to an unhealthy level (beyond the levels of a healthy individual)? I was once again told the numbers for my Lipids and Blood came back as a clean bill of health. The concern was my Testosterone, and I was again informed to stop immediately. Adding to this, this last doctor stated that he would not monitor my usage, and informed me it was not legal for him to do so.
Not a total loss though. I take other meds, which do require blood work to be tested every 6 months. It isn’t the timing I was hoping for, but will work. Luckily my other doc is much more supportive, and is very big on semi annual labs (with consideration to my other meds). She is awesome, and was fully supportive of my choices.
Sort of a confusing story above. To clear things a bit, the Doc with the lack of support is a regular family Doc. The supportive doc is my Pshyciatrist. I won’t get into those details. Some of us are just wired differently than others, and meds even things out a bit.
She is aware of my choice Test, and has confirmed the other meds do not interfere with it.
She admitted there isn’t much USA literature on the Testosterone topic, and has looked towards the UK for gathering more information. She stated I am one of the first to admit my choice to take it, and almost seemed excited to see what may occure.
I am definitely glad I had her experience, prior to this last. After my most recent visit, I now fully understand why patients don’t discuss these things lol!
As always, thank you for your reply. I appreciate every bit of feedback.
