I had my follow up visit with my doc. After starting on Fortesta at 4 pumps/day, I'd started to feel a bit better all around. I'd noticed a slight improvement in my libido and instances of morning wood, but I thought it could get better. I discussed with my doc and he was good with me upping the Fortesta to 8 pumps per day.
I figured it was smooth sailing. Not so fast.... Initially, Mr. Happy was diggin' it, but then my libido dropped to nothing and no more morning wood. Along with the loss of libido, erections are even now a bit difficult to maintain. I went back to the stickies and started reading and figure my Estradiol is too high. The last blood results (at 4 pumps) have:
Total T = 529
Estradiol = 31.9
Now gonna' push for a bit of Arimidex.
My doc originally had suggested that I do another blood test in March. I'm thinking to go ahead and ask for .5mg Arimidex 2x/wk and then test in March as was originally the idea. Remember, I'm now doing 8 pumps/day, so my T is probably up there in the high 700s or 800s.
