My doc has just switched me over to injections after being off the Testim for 3 weeks due to insurance issues, He gave me a 1cc shot in the SQ I’m assuming since it did not go into a muscle and then he told me to see him in 30days for new labs…
From what I’m reading that is not a good thing I would like to go back to him this coming week and ask for something more frequent.
My doc is a M.D trying to treat the low T I believe he has a lack of knowledge on the subject but seems open.
my questions are.
- he gave me the injection on Friday when should I feel the effects?
2 what should I ask the doc for frequency of the injections to stay stable level of T?
- on the Testim my Bilirubin went form 0.8 to 1.7 is this normal on TRT?
