I received my first insertion of Testopel pellets around 4 months ago. My doctor recommended we should start with 12 pellets at first. Everything went fine only minor discomfort for about a week. After a week started to feel really good and continued that way for about another month. Checked my levels using Labcorp at the 1 month mark and my total testosterone was 418 ng/dl.
Around the 1.5 month mark after insertion, 1 of the pellets came to the surface and expelled. And then another 1 again at the 2 month mark and finally around the 2.5 mark another 4 came out which would be the whole row of 6 that were inserted.
Went back to the doctor at exactly 3 months to have another round of Testopel inserted. We discussed this time going to 18 pellets. Well just got my labs in the mail and I was extremely shocked. Here are the numbers…
Total Testosterone 1462 ng/dl 348-1197
Free Testosterone 61.7 ng/dl 5-21
% Free Testosterone 4.22 1.5-4.2
Estradiol 57.3 7.6-42.6
I feel ok but not really awesome. Should I ask the doc for a script of Arimidex to lower my E2?? Any input would be greatly appreciated.
