Hi Fellas , have not posted on here for a long time was busy living it up as an optimal specimen ! Basically I attempted a restart to see if my body could function at a half decent level without Ex T , just over 5 weeks later and I ended up throwing the towel in , and throwing a stick in !!
My restart plan was guided by my endo who put me on 25mg clomid eod 2 weeks then 12.5mg eod 2 weeks , pretty much from week 2 onwards it has been the shittiest I have felt in at least 2 years possibly worse then before TRT !
Energy levels low , sleep was poor my knees and ankles were popping like a bowl of rice crispies my strength and muscle mass slipped away daily along with confidence and libido , work seemed twice as hard as normal and generally swimming in shit !
My hyperthyroid crashed my hormones ( super high SHBG and low free test ) which is why I started TRT to begin with 2 years ago and at the time I attempted the restart thyroid was tracking great so why not give it a shot , although my endo did advise me that at 38 years old I’m probably past the point of no return , he was right ,
I know guys will say I didn’t give it long enough should have been at least 6-8 weeks minimum but really I couldnt see much improvement happening in another 6 days ,
Basically I have accepted the fact that with my thyroid condition and the age I’m at my life is going to be much more enjoyable on TRT , I know there’s other Guys on here that have tried a similar restart only to come to the same conclusion , but also fellas who have had a successful restart ( I salute you gentlemen )
Blood tests were taken today before I threw a shot in so will be interesting to see where I was sitting after 5 weeks , will post them up when they arrive in a few days .
Lifelong TRT what’s everyone’s thoughts ??? Any experiences from people 10,15, 20 years on TRT ?
