Thanks for weighing in, and for the welcome Gonad! I suspect I'm gonna be spending a lot of time here.
Labs/ranges on my hormone panel as follows--note: I don't see FSH:
Total 187 ng/dL (range 348-1197)
Free (direct) 6.6 pg/mL (range 8.7-25.1)
LH 5.6 mIU/mL (range 1.7-8.6)
Prolactin 8.5 ng/mL (range 4.0-15.2)
Sex Horm Binding Glob, Serum 16 nmol/L (range 16.5-55.9)
Estradiol 6.8 pg/mL (range 7.6-42.6)
As to the testicle surgery, it was for a hydrocele repair (epididymitis)... long story short, in my late teens/early twenties I had several hernias (both inguinal, and umbilical) and subsequent repairs/re-repairs. Ended up with hydrocele's (essentially water between the testicle and outer/protective membrane)... I'm told an unfortunate complication from those hernia repairs. Anyway, I was told the condition was benign, and only needed addressed if it became uncomfortable... well by the time I hit my late 20's the fuckers had slowly swelled up (one the size of a grapefruit and other the size of a large lemon)... and became terribly painful (like to the point I couldn't sleep without taking a dozen+ advil... not to mention wrecking my appetite)... so I went in to get em cut on... for the repair, they completely removed the protective membrane around both nuts.
I never once suspected low T... I'm a hairy/masculine guy, full beard, a little male pattern baldness... zero problems getting or sustaining an erection... just thought it was depression or laziness (read: me being a bitch).
That said, looking back.. I see a slightly different story... I get home everyday and I'm fucking wiped out (all I wanna do is couch surf)... getting to the gym has often required heavy doses of stims (bronkaid, caffeine etc)... I've gone from 2 a-days with my lady down to 2 a-months (often she initiates)... I rarely ever masturbate (read: been living like a monk). Fucking trained arms on Saturday, it's Friday and I'm still sore (this is with intra md AND and concoction bowl... read: good periworkout nutrition, and a routine I've been on for 6 wks)... I've been fucking killing it on both training and nutrition (cutting corners on food sources or not, my macros/cals have been on point), getting good sleep/hydration... and just getting nowhere (except ran down).
