Okay so I went to see my doctor the other day one month after my PCT and two months after my last injection (first cycle btw). My original question was to get a referral for a dermatologist for a shot at getting accutane, and when I get to his office ask for some blood tests to make sure the cycle went okay with my body.
Not surprisingly, he said accutane is a horrible idea because ill get depressed and it will somehow screw me up completely. I told him I also wanted to check cholesterol levels, blood pressure, prostate, and testosterone levels. He said as I am only 21 my prostate doesn’t need to be checked (even though my father had prostate cancer). He checked off the cholesterol on the blood test sheet, and did the blood pressure on his own.
But for my T-levels he checked off a basic thyroid profile that only checks TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) and free T3 levels. So I asked to check off the total testosterone cause I think thatï¿½??s what I want (to compare with other people and see where I rank in terms of normal test) and he of course argued that biochemical testosterone is what I wanted to check.
Any ideas who is right? Do you believe 21 years old is too young for a prostate check?
Physicals in Canada take like 3 months wait and I’m going to get one before my next cycle, but for now I just wanted to make sure everything else is fine.
