That was my least favorite delivery method. I got a very painful hematoma about the size of a playing card for almost three weeks. It felt like a chunk of my muscle trying to “fall off” when I would run. Also, absorption rates vary. This many pellets might work for person A, but person B might not absorb as quickly, leaving him with sub-optimal T levels for 3-6 months. That’s another thing. I STILL can feel them despite them being implanted in the beginning of August.
Really knowing how many pellets YOU require would take the first trial and error implantation, and you’ll have to live with it right or wrong for the next few months. Too low and you’ll need to supplement with something else (androgel, injections, etc), OR you implant more?
On the positive side, once you do have the correct amount dialed in, you only have to deal with one office visits every four-ish months to maintain. Whatever works best for YOU.
With injections changing dosage is very simple. More simple than trying to do a half pump of gel. More simple than applying another patch. You get the point.
Long story short I think you’re on the right path and you won’t be disappointed.
