Anyone have experience with Androgel 1%? Had my first visit with an endocnorlogist.(sp) I told him I had my family doc prescribe me with 50mg x 1 mo. test cyp after registering a 199 on eval. He looked at me funny like I was joking. Then I told him I took matters in my own hands (pun intended) and upped the dosesage to 50mg x 2 a week. He looked at me even funnier this time! He asked if I was playing TV doctor!!! He did admit that the first doc didn’t know what he was doing when he prescribed the 50 mg once a month.
Anyway as a result of this learned MD who after after a 30 min dissertation on what test really is, how and where it is produced in the body and what side effects there are from using administered T I walked away feeling like I found someone who really knew what the f… they were talking about and was willing to help. He took me off the Test injections completely for 2 weeks and then ordered extensive testing to be done. He wants to know exactly why my levels are so low. That should be interesting.
He did however prescribe Androgel 1% before I left but wants to wait before I start on this to establish a baseline of where I really am. What a novel approach!
Then he looks at my shaved arms and asked how much I weigh and what I thought my bodyfat was…I’m going oh shit he’s on to me and going to renig. then he ask how strong I am…IE: Max effort lifts, etc. And he’s writting all this down. I’m really getting nervous now, am I just paranoid or is this a real HRT doctor doing his job? I think the latter and feel like help is on the way.
