Met with Uro #2.
Very nice guy who emphasized that he was a "quality of life guy."
He put my on 50mg of Clomid daily for the first four months. Then blood work to confirm effect, then down to EOD.
I’m going to stay on the 50mg daily for a while to see how I feel before scaling back on the dosages, as recommended here.
He also prescribed me Cialis for “quality of life” reasons even though I haven’t been having erection issues. I don’t know if I’ll bother with it.
Pharmacy just informed me that my insurance doesn’t cover the Clomid. So that’s $50/month out of pocket for as long as I’m doing the full dosage.
I’m independently tackling the thyroid issue, as Uro #2 didn’t seem interested in the high TSH level. That’s just as well to me, as I’d like to get some sort of bump up in testosterone as I work to get the thyroid straight.
- Clomid 50mg daily for a few weeks to see how I feel
- Iodine supplementation (and add in selenium)
- Continue checking body temps
- Check TSH levels in a month.
- Go see endo if TSH levels haven’t evened out
(alternatively, (5): try to find an rT3 test).
