I am 29 years old, and due to a traumatic brain injury which damaged my pituitary my body stopped getting signals to make several hormones, one of them being testosterone. I have been on CLomid and Arimidex for the last year with really strong numbers, but lots of side effects. I had finally had enough and got a second opinion from another Endo who suggested I go on pellets. I think its a great idea and am planning to make the switch, but here is my question.
He wants me to stop all medication completely for 3-4 weeks to let me levels fall back to the 180’s range (where they were before treatment). Is this standard procedure? I have been off treatment for about 10 days and can already feel the low T effects rearing their ugly head. He says its so the insurance company will 100% cover the pellets, but I was already diagnosed, I just wanted to change treatments.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, the last 6-7 years dealing with this have been a nightmare to say the least. I just want to get treatment and move on ASAP.
