All good things must come to an end.
I was cruising on 500mg test-e for a good time now (last post would indicate 3 years).
The hospital I was seen at has had such a high churn, that finally we got a conservative doctor concerned about health and numbers as opposed to the feelings of a patient. He denied giving me any shots until he saw my test results, which showed a level of 3000. At this point, he refused to administer anymore and referred me to a specialist to get evaluated for something other than hypogonadism (potentially mild androgen insensitivity).
Until then, I have 0 testosterone (only on what’s in my body with half-life now).
I will really feel it when I hit the 1200~ mark, possibly have hard impact at 600 and will feel like death when I hit 60 (if I can even make that after being on so long).
The wait times are long and I’m unsure at this point to manipulate different doctors at different clinics to get injections or to ride this out for a month, to very well 3, on the hopes of a diagnosis that would give me the ability to get any amount of testosterone desired as at any level below 2500-3200, I do not feel “healthy” (mind, body, etc.), despite all other numbers (cholesterol, RBC, etc. which are in check) being overlooked as in the healthy range.
He kept saying he treats the patient and not numbers, but couldn’t overlook a testosterone level of 3000 with numbers other than that of a completely healthy male (creatine, of course, runs high at times).
