I was looking for some input from guys who frequent this board and would appreciate any input.
I’m 32 years old and I have weight trained consistantly if not constantly for 2 plus years. Before that I was a 29 year old couch potato. 5-8 180 I intially droped 40 lbs. At that point I tried to put on some lean muscle.
Only success I found was a cycle of winstrol tabs only in Summer 08. Put on 20 lbs and with Novadex post cycle I kept 10 of those lbs on. On the cycle and coming off the cycle a year ago I felt fantastic. But since fall 08 i’ve slowly gone downhill. Here and there i was trying a Pro Hormone called Hemaguno with mixed results. But now I have all the symptoms of someone with low t.
I got checked a month ago for test and thyroid. Thyroid was fine but test was around 250. My doctor said I was hypogonadal and sent me to my urologist. My first meeting with urologist he said I was low side of normal which is BS becasue I’m 32. I started the appointment by telling him I discussed it with my wife and I wanted to be as aggressive as possible with treatment.
It seems you have to wait three weeks to get an appt with any doctor in my town. Anyway he did a visual exam of testes etc. and said he wanted to send me for more bloodwork. He wants test and LH checked. He demanded I get it done in the morning since my original test was at 4pm. I feel he is manipulating the test to get it as high as possible. He said I may need to see an endocrinologist if LH is off. He discussed TRT options.
He even said pills which I didn’t think were an option anymore but pushed gel or patch. I told him injections were my choice should we go that route. He was discouraging. Said you get extreme highs and lows. I’m seeing him in a week when he gets these results. I know I want test injections. I think I should have something else but I don’t know what. Clomid, HCG?
I’ve noticed the last couple of weeks my nipples are coning if that makes sense. They aren’t sensitive, but they seem bigger. There are no “anti-aging” doctors near me. I live in Western PA. I want to get in fantastic shape and I want to do it the safe effective way. I know I have low test and I have trouble putting on muscle. My training and diet are great, this I know.
If anything I have overtrained in the past. Any input or advice from people would be appreciated. What I could say to my doctor? What I should push for? How much/how often? Also if anyone knows someone who is better suited for this in my area? I’m willing to travel a little bit. My doctor seemed clueless.
