its been hell waiting on my endo appointment but I followed all of your advice (all that I could) and I wanted to follow up with you and ask a couple of questions… if you find the time to get back to me at all I will great-full but I understand there are many asking for help.
-Firstly, I switched to 50mg twice a week with the #29 insulin syringes and did that all the way up to the endo appointment.
-my last lab in october was between injections as noted
-I have been unable to talk my urologist or endo into prescribing hCG or arimidex (or any AI), she did however take the information I got here plus all the pubmed and nihb articles I found in the stickies supporting it, she said she would look into it.
At the end of my endo appointment she concluded she wants me to discontinue the trt and wait until march so she can test me again. Stated I needed the 5x half life to rid my body of everything to get an accurate measure. She wants to do this due to the fact that my urologist not only tested my levels in the afternoon every time (2-3pm) but also switched my dosage from 200mg every other week, to 75mg every week. She was also upset the doc let me test the day after an injection (understandably). Long story short, she doesnt trust the test results my urologist gave her.
So here are my questions:
- Should I keep on the trt and seek out a new endo (seriously no other endo’s in my area so this would be tough).
- Go ahead and stop and go cold turkey until march
- Stop and start PCT? (I have access to un-prescribed clomid and tamoxifen so my only option would be to PCT with those two substances).
Here is the blood work in totality that my urologist ran, I was only able to acquire these from the endo, as the urologist office wanted me to jump through hoops to get them.
