About Me: Male, 40’s, Kojack style haircut, no more kids.
My wife suggested I was moody and should have the T tested. I did and it eeked in at the bottom of the low range. My GP was ready to write me a script for gel and send me on my way. A few more questions and I discovered he knew next to nothing regarding T-therapy other than “if it’s in a certain range you’re normal”.
Later on, I had the old “when I was younger man” conversation with another gym member and was lucky enough to get recommended to a GP that does TRT therapy. I’ve since moved to the Portland, Oregon area and my old doc couldn’t recommend anyone out here. So now I’m trying to find a good, liberal TRT doctor in the area.
I want the same or better “liberal” approach my last doctor had. I think he felt it was more about symptoms and results vs. the “it falls in this range” speech.
The last doctor had me in every 6 months for blood tests and to discuss results. He had me on 400mg Test Cyp (200mg x2 wk) and Arimidex 1mg EOD. You’re probably already saying that’s more like a starter cycle than a TRT dose. It gets better. He let me try Deca 50mg 1x wk with the Test. It stacked well and I saw some results but I ended up with Deca-dick! Once I was off it a couple weeks, I was OK to go again. I’ve used HCG to help keep the nads from shrinking and I’ve used Oxandrolone (20-30mg daily) to cut up a bit. All of this legal and with prescription!
Chances are the next doc will think I’m some gym junkie if I go asking for that again. I need a liberal minded doctor with common sense and experience to know what’s safe and let ME make the decision on what I want to try. Do they exist? Help!
