Once per month. And, this is a “starting dose.” My levels on first bloods here were well below “normal,” so we will see where it goes after bloods this month, the 4th month of injections. I’m positive the levels are higher than they were at first, but no idea how close to the standard ranges listed on tests, whether low normal, mid etc. Am quite confident they’re probably low to mid normal based on my body responses. I desire the doctor to take them to a high normal level, but no more. No desire to powerlift or bodybuild, just a middle aged disabled veteran trying to stay reasonably strong and mobile. Def need to drop some bodyfat too, that will come. I was on the TRT 2 months before getting back to working out after a loooooong hiatus due to surgeries and complications. That said, my wife and I counted how many times I’ve been under general anesthesia in my life…20 times if we didn’t miss any. So this 51 yo body has been through hell from being a soldier, then working heavy jobs, then becoming unable to work gainful employment at age 31 and going on total disability (VA/SSA). Thank God the USAF retired me vs a medical discharge, else I’d have gone through twice as much hell getting medical care via VA than I did with civilian docs.
Probably irrelevant and TMI, but I like to make it clear that I’m just trying to be strong and healthy, not add enormous muscle whether lean or not. At my age, a full body workout 3 times a week to include 1mi. of any rat wheel they got is perfectly acceptable to me. If perhaps it takes me back to more of a “V” shaped physique, that’s a bonus I’ll gladly take. For now, I’m a dude familiar with exercise/nutrition to reach goals, and know my personal ones. The biggest goal right now is bodyfat reduction, as I stand 6’2" at 270lbs. Would like to get that weight to about 215 or less over the next 12 months. Since I once weighed 387 (lardass fatboy) and without assistance from a doctor lost 165lbs down to 232, I’m confident I know WTF I’m doing in that arena…I shoulda maintained the 232 instead of adding back 38 of those pounds. However, as stated, I had some major obstacles, and I sure ain’t given up, nor will I.
Dang, guess I felt talkative this morning…
Ya all take care,
