I just started TRT with the VA. My Dr. has me on 200mg/EOW of Test cyp. I took my first injection this evening in the upper outter quadren of my right butt cheek. I’ve been dealing with low t for over a year now and it is because of the crappy docters the VA has. But I finally got a good Dr and am being taken care of. Because it took over a year my low energy and resulting poor diet caused me from being a fairly yolked dude to clinically obese. I’m 5’4 and 230lbs. I also suffer from PTSD, insomnia, Depression and Anxiety.
My very first blood test had me at 50ng/dl then 2 months later I was at 225ng/dl, then 1 month later I was at 264ng/dl. Since I was in “normal range” my docter (actually she was a nurse practitioner) said that she was basically done with monitoring my test levels and that no therapy would be given. After I dropped that NP and got a real dr who was a male, he had me retested and I was at 154ng/dl. He referred me to endo and they started me on the TRT.
I am going to be retested in Feb. half way through my 2 week cycle.
anyways I hope that my levels and energy goes back up so i can get back into the gym, get my muscles back and started enjoying life once again. I look forward to posting and reading threads on this site and learning more about everything.
