A little history: Last September I was diagnosed with testicular cancer and had my right testicle removed. Afterward I did 2 months of radiation therapy where I barely ate anything & was always tired. Obviously I lost some muscle and fat. Skip forward, I am getting back into the swing of things but have noticed decreased strength & energy. I also felt kind of depressed and seemed to have fat appearing in places it hadn't before.
I had never been to a doctor for a physical with blood tests (I hate needles). I went 2 weeks ago and also asked to get my testosterone tested. He was pretty hesitant but I just told him that I wanted to be sure my level was ok with only one testicle. It looks like the test was done by Quest.
Here are the results:
Total test: 665 ng/dl
Free test: 63 pg/ml
I've done lots of googling this morning but am having trouble deciphering what is normal. From what I gather my total level is probably normal. Is my free test low? And if so, is it low enough that a doctor would do anything about it? I have an appointment with my urologist next week.
