I have been reading the sticky post and trying to absorb everything. I will keep reading of course. But wanted to post my case thread just to get the feed back started. I am going to post my first labs before I started and post my stats at that time in this first post then I will do a post for my second labs and the stats at that time then I will do the third labs that brings me up to date. I have been on TRT for 16 month's started with 150mg no HCG for the first 3 months then got on it.
My Doc is part of Live Well out of FL. From the start he had me on the 150mg IM of T every 6 days and when I started the HCG it was 2000IU IM in the arm every 6 days with the T shot. 2.5mg EOD of Finasteride and .5mg 5 times a week of Anastrozole. Also OTC DHEA 25mg a day, Resveratrol 250mg a day, D 2000iu a day, L-Arginine 2000 mg a day.

-describe body and facial hair = Big Guy but not big hands or broad shoulders, big feet size 14, long torso I can carry 350lb and people guess 250lb. Little facial hair never shaved until my 18th birthday and that was just a few hairs never needed to shave everyday until mid 20's very little body hair on arms or legs.
-describe where you carry fat and how changed. carry fat like a woman, belly, hips, butt, not to much in the chest.

-Rx and OTC drugs, any hair loss drugs or prostate drugs ever= Took lots of the normal gym rat supplements through the years when I was in the gym, creatine, L-Arg, L-Gul, protein drinks, took 1 cycle of Anavar in the 80's and one cycle of test in the 90's. Then took the Finasteride when I started the TRT in 2012 I got some side effects and got scread after reading and got off of it after talking to my Doc and he had started taking guys off of it at that same time. We used some prostate cream "Kokoro" but hated that so I quit it, then Doc put me back on Finasteride 1.25mg EOD. He stated the Finasteride was to prevent prostate issues.
-lab results with ranges posting pic's of them if they are not clear please let me know. Looks like I will have to post them each in its only post please look below for them.
-describe diet At the start of TRT I eat like crap and was not working out, at about 3 months in I felt better and started working out 3 days a week and started eating a lot better dropped 50lbs in 6 months went from about 35+BMI to about 28 +- BMI using tape measure method.
-describe training [some ruin there hormones by over training]= As a side note* I was a very late bloomer was never strong for my size when I went through puberty I lost baby fat but kept some of it like a girl lower belly and butt. Joined US army at 22 PT 5 days a week. When I was in my late 20's joined a gym and I over trained big time for about a year or more then quit altogether packed on fat quick. The rest of my 30's not in the gym much but when I was I over trained. I worked hard physical labor until mid 30's and my weight stayed in check fat but not obese. Then from late 30's to 49 packed on lbs went from say 285 to 385 and yoyoed from the high 3's to 330 and back up a few times.
-testes ache, ever, with a fever? = No ache in my test that I can remember.
-how have morning wood and nocturnal erections changed. Before TRT started they were non-existent, after 3 months or so started having some but not much then they got better but not great!
