End 2012 (34 years old) I had an orchidectomy ( basicly removing the right testicle because of cancer, seminoma ). After that I had a single Carboplatinum Chemo dosis).
Awful episode, but they reassured me everything would be fine, with 1 testicle. to make a long story short, I had a TT of 192 ng/dL and I felt like a 80 year old person, tired and old, without energy or ambition, and my erection quality was getting worse.
After that I have been on hCG monotherapy, bringing the value to a 380 ng/dL and a FT barely in range. I still didn’t feel really good. Energy was a bit better, but I felt bloated and I still had Erectyle disfunction. Libido was still very low. Also very emotional. Movies made me cry all the time.
Before the cancer, I never had any problems. I’m 37 years young, and used to have a healthy sexual life. I recently have a new girlfriend. Luckily enough she is very understanding.
I started with sustanon, ( now 4 weeks )
Every week I use 125mg of sustanon ( half ampoule)
I use every week 750 IU of Pregnyl ( half ampoule ) I hate to have a shriveled up scrotum and testicle
I use nolvadex 10mg ED to combat the gyno.
When I used hCG monotherapy, I also used Nolvadex, suddently my erection was good enough, sadly enough this only lasted a couple of days.
However this was a light at the end of the tunnel,giving me a clue there is hope!!
Now I went to another endocrinologic docter today with the hope that he would prescribe me some Arimidex to combat the Estrogen E2.
Basicly he was laughing in my face. Said my erection problem has nothing to do with the Nolvadex / Estrogen. He said I should stop reading on the internet and that I should go with my girlfriend to the a sex “counceling”. He said I better use some aspirines, that it will have the same effect…
He said he couldn’t give me the Arimidex because it’s not approved and would break down my bones. He said there were sientific studies proving this.
He wants to put me on hCG monotherapy again. I’m very reluctent to do this…
I am so mad right now, and a bit hopeless. I posted my latest bloodwork,
I’m sorry the format is a bit messed up, it’s basicly my blood value, the range and my last recent blood value, on one line to compare.
