New guy here, excited to start this TRT journey. Here’s a little backstory on my health:
I’m 32 years old now, but was diagnosed with a prolactinoma at 22. Had super high prolactin, like in the 80’s, and T was in the 120s. Been taking cabergoline off and on for the last ten years. Currently off as of a month ago. Prolactin is now in low 20s, and T tested at 240. I dont have results of any other levels but could get them. Also at 14 years old I had testicular torsion in both nuts. They were saved and I have two young kids, but doc said they suffered trauma and that’s probably why my T levels are still so low. When I was first diagnosed all I wanted to do was sleep. Also had some ed issues and extremely low libido. Nowadays, no ed issues but still not much libido, and feel fatigued and foggy daily. I’m 6’1" and 210 lbs. At my heaviest I was 250 about a year and a half ago. Been at my current weight for a little over a year, mainly due to diet change, but also job change. That got rid of almost all stress. The bad stress anyway.
I’m currently prescribed 100mg cypionate a week and took my first shot last night. Today was the first day in a long time I haven’t felt sleepy. I haven’t yawned once. My head also feels clearer, and just felt more energetic and alert. Maybe it’s just excitement.
I guess my question is, in your opinion, am I on the right course for a more fulfilled life? I kind of struggled with the decision to start, because I know it’s a lifelong commitment. But I feel like I dont know how well I could feel, since basically my whole adult life, and possibly even my teenage years my hormones have been subpar.
Any thoughts on what’s to come? Anybody else have a prolactinoma?
