Short Version: I did chemo for hep c on 6/23/2000. It believe it damaged my endo system, mainly testes and T production. Per Doctors prescriptions I have been on and off Androgel over the past 10 years. One year ago I was diagnosed with a under active thyroid and low T (102). Since then I have been on Test Cyp injections for the low T and Synthroid for Thyroid function. My Doctor does not specialize in TRT so I requested a referral to a specialist. I have been reading the stickies so I will be prepared when I have my appointment. If I have to I will take matters in my own hand. I will post new Tests when I get them.
