So for the last few years have been feeling less and less interested in the things I like to do. I've been putting off seeing a DR for too long and finally went a month or so ago. Came in with a laundry list of symptoms and he ran a battery of labs, more than I have ever seen. Got the results back a few days later and didn't see any Test labs. Kinda disappointed since most of my symptoms you can attribute to low T. As far as labs most everything was good except for very low Vitamin D. Slightly elevated bad colesterol, Slightly low good colesterol. BP in check with no meds. Pre diabetic, but have been that way for 5 years and holding.
I have always been overweight, when I was 220 (5'8) I felt overweight, now would do almost anything to get back to that weight, I'm about 320 now. But I am sore and no drive or energy to give the effort. The Dr says excess calories (which I actually don't eat that much) and take a vit D supplement. On the same followup visit I inquire about low T and he said he didn't test for that, and "didn't do much with low T"
Pretty much left the Dr. office with constant thougts of low T and just wanted to see where I was at numbers wise. If I was in the OK range I would forget about it, but at least my mind would be at ease. Most mverything I read is about guys having life changing experiences on TRT. I did a search a couple days later looking for something online that would test and supply prescriptions at a reasonable cost. I found a place and contacted them, recieved a reply a few hours later and gave him the short story of symptoms. Next day I was at a Local Lab getting blood drawn and a few days later recieved just total T results of 194. So there ya have it, I was relieved actually to see this low number. It means TRT is possible. Last Monday I recieved a 6 month supply of everything needed. Test, HCG, B12, AI, Clomid, syringes, Bact water, alcohol wipes, etc.
The first I could the next day I prepared a syringe of Test, but froze when trying to inject. Lol I had watch at least 10 youtube vids of how to do it and it looked so painless. But when it came to it just couldn't do it. Got so close but not gonna do it. Finally later that day I did it. Surprisingly it was painless in the thigh. The worst part was feeling the different layers while I slowly pushed it al the way in. It was a 23ga 1" needle. I used the outer mid thigh due to easy access.
So far I don't feel any different, to be expected. It is easy to get caught up in the placebo. The protocol I recieved was 200mg 1x a week and injections of HCG and B12 on different subsequent days. AI 2x a week. The Clomid and extra HCG is for post cycle in just under 6 months.
That's my story so far, so we'll see where this goes. I'll try to give updates every week or 2.
