Hey guys. I’m new here. Looking for info and opinions. A little background info. I’ve got high blood pressure that I take amlodipine besylate 5 mg. In aug of 07 I had testicle cancer. They removed my right testicle and had I think 17 rounds of radiation. That is my basic background. My va doctor told me in the fall that my t was low. She info me to get another test done and see my regular doctor.
Fast forward to feb of this year. I finally get around to seeing my doctor. Explain to him the info and he orders a blood test. The t comes back at a 258. He sends me to see a endo. The endo goes over my background and comes up with the same conclusion. The endo orders another blood test. Same results with low t. Just lower t this time.
I’ve since talked to the doctor and he’s worried about starting trt because my wife and I are trying to get pregnant. He’s going to consult with a specailist before any meds are started. Oh yeah. My sperm count is normal for only on ball.
Test results from 2-26-13
LH 3.4, 1.7-8.6 NORMAL
FSH 5.5, 1.5-12.4 NORMAL
PROLACTIN 19.6, 4.0-15.2 NORMAL
TESTOSTERONE SERUM 258 348-1197 NORMAL
TEST FROM 3-15-13
SEX HORM BINDING GLOB SERUM 14.8, 16.5-55.9 NORMAL

I’ve read up on some of the sticky. What else should I be looking for or asking my doctor? I’m hoping to hear back from him this week and find out more about trt. The specialist my endo is checking with is from washington I think. This specialist just deals with trt is my take on it.
