Within the last year I have gained 80 lbs, and my body has ballooned up. In June of last year I was diagnosed with testicular cancer, and had one testicle removed which is when the weight gain really started. I noticed that my clothes weren’t fitting anymore cause my waistline was growing. After the surgery my energy levels were depleted significantly, my overall mood was dull, and I really noticed that my focus was gone. I have been an athlete my whole life, and I played football for a major D-1 school, so I have always been in really good shape. In my playing days I weighted 285 then shortly after I was done my weight went down to 265. This new weight on my body is killing my joints, and bringing about pain in my body.
I had my hormone levels checked by doctors, and my androgen was below normal, and my estradiol was three times higher then normal which lead to a diagnosis of hypogonadism. Due to my financial status I could not afford to go through TRT through the hospital, and doctor route so I have had to battle this deficiency by other means. Right now I am supplementing with 300mg Depotest every 10 days, 20 mg of Tamoxifen everyday, and also clenbuterol for fat loss. Does anyone know of anything that works better to combat hypogonadism? If not is this something that I am going to have to do for the rest of my life?
