I recently (Feb 2nd) had my first test shot from my primary doc (200mg Test Cyp) This was after giving a-gel a spin for on optimistic week and two weeks of pure hell. All he can do for me is once a month, but I knew beforehand from reading that this would not be suitable at all long term.
I figured it was just a stepping stone to see how well I felt before getting a referral to see an endocrinologist. Test is the answer to so many of my problems, and depression was at the top of the list. It was obliterated a day or two after my injection along with other physical problems I am plagued with.
After about a week I felt it slip away and I am now in the most horrible mental place I have ever been. I have an appointment with an endo on march 8th, but it's like I'm just counting the minutes down in my own little solitary confinement cell. Calling three times a day to check for cancellations, and I even had them send the doc a message to see if he can squeeze me in sooner.
It's like a light was turned on after the shot and now it's darker than ever. I feel like I'm acting like a little bitch calling the doctors office every day, and even whining about it in this thread I have started. This is not me. How in the world can any doctor think that once a month could remotely do the trick and not send everyone who ran with it to the mental ward. Maybe it's just me.
I had blood work done Oct 2nd last year, and all I know right now is my test was 309. I have requested a copy and will be getting it withing the next few days. I have seen others post their tests here, and I know I couldn't be in a better place to get some feedback and advice regarding my TRT.
When I made the appointment the nurse had assured me that this doc could help me beyond once a month, but how much experience he has, and how much control he's willing to give me is still a mystery. I have to do some more reading so I'm well prepared for our first meeting. BTW I'm 40, and my avatar is a total goof. Not me. I'll be be on the lookout for my tests and try to find a way to post them. Thanks in advance.
