Hey guys, been lurking in the forums for the past week looking at experiences, however, I would like to hear some more. I’ve been given injections/gels for the past two months by my GP. She referred me to an endo this Monday. Me being OCD I immediately start to think I have a pituitary tumor/growth. I noticed that I had gyno at a young age (around 13, now 30) and my sexual drive hasn’t really been the best for the past 10 years. Currently taking anti anxiety meds (buspar) and SSRI (lexapro) for OCD. I get migraines (tunnel vision, then headache) once every two weeks. So far the testosterone treatments have been working on the energy/sexual functioning.
Anyways, I’d like to hear from those who have pituitary tumors, mainly, did you get it removed? Why did you get it removed? As you can see, I’d much rather avoid surgery. I know I’m jumping the gun on this as I do not know to why my testosterone is low yet, however hearing your own personal experience I think will help ease my mind.
Unfortunately I do not have blood work numbers to show you other than I believe my testosterone was at 266 (on a scale of 348-1197) from my first test. Second test on treatment was about 10 points lower.
Thank you in advance!
