Whats up guys? I've been lurking around here for the past few weeks and with the vast amount of knowledge that gets shared on this site I figured I'd inject my case.
Waist 34" Pant Size
Weight 210 lbs
Most of my fat is in the belly. I was incredibly lean and couldn't gain a pound till my mid to late 20's
All of my fatigue, brain fog, mood issues started when I was 19 and got Mono. The best way I can explain it is once I got Mono its like I never got over it.
I do have Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Diagnosed 5 years ago. Completely under control with use of Cpap.
A few months after getting Mono I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism. After a few months had to switch Dr's and he said I didn't have a thyroid issue and took me off meds. No Dr since has ever said anything about my thyroid.
I typically weight train 3 days a week. Some cardio as well on those days. As much as I love being in the gym, I've never really seen much change in the composition of my body. I'm not a body builder nor have any desire to become one. Just a normal guys who likes working out.
Saturday - Chest/Tri
Tuesday - Shoulders/Legs
Thursday - Back/Bi's
Sunday - Cardio/Arms
No hairloss or prostate drugs ever.
No ache in testies that I can remember.
Last April 2013 I decided on the urging of a friend of mine to see a new Dr. I went in and had all the normal lab work done. During the office visit he said my testosterone was very low for my age. My level was at 225. At that point he started me on Androgel. It took about 2 months before I started to notice any benefit..ie very strong morning wood, great libido and very confident again sexually. Due to having a 2 year old son and a wife I asked to switch to injections. I started Test Cypionate 200mg EOW in early July 2013. From that moment forward its like I might as well be injecting water. I've never noticed any benefit since changing to injections. I kept this routine of every other Sunday from July 2013 until August of this year.
At my August checkup I explain that I was essentially treading water, so they changed my routine to 200mg every week. After 6-8 weeks oh so of this I had follow up blood work on 10-02-14. Everything fell within normal ranges and they told me to keep doing the same thing. I explained to them that I was feeling nothing, no boost, no highs and lows just felt like crap all the time. I asked them to run a Estradiol lab and it came back at 61. they started me on Anastrozole 1mg twice a week. I took my first 1mg pill on 10-29-14 and my second on 11-2-14.
So my current routine is 200mg Cypionate every Sunday and 1mg Anastrozole at the time of injection and another 1mg pill on Wednesday. I feel the same as I have since starting the injections. Tired, moody, irritable, sex drive comes and goes but erections and performance are poor. I just remember that short window on the gel where I felt so good sexually that it was borderline cocky.
I have attached a word document with all my labs and dates. The labs on 9-18-13 occurred 2 days post injection. The labs on 4-9-14 occurred at 16 days post injection and the labs on 7-31-14 occurred at 18 days post injection. Those two lab visits happened to fall at times when the person that gives them to me was out of town and so I knew levels would be low. The labs on 10-2-14 shows my levels after about 8 weeks on the 200mg every week injections, but prior to AI usage. I'm open to any and all ideas that you guys have to offer. Thank you for your time.
