I went to the VA to see if I can at least get some of my meds and supplies free m them. It would save me a little from paying out of pocket through Defy. I’m on propionate, so the endo has to put a special request in for that medication. They are willing to give me cypionate for free, but I don’t know if I am willing to go down that road again when propionate is working so well. The endo was confused as to why I am on HCG, and recommended stopping it. What is up with doctors being so clueless on trt? He was also trying to encourage me to do another restart. He wanted to see how I’d be if I was ‘optimized.’ I told him I tried that for a year, and it was a no-go. He said that trt is for life and he didn’t recommend committing to it. Do these people have a clue about the health risks and quality of life issues with hypogonadism? He was more worried about the health risks with testosterone. The VA has been guilty of over-prescribing testosterone, so I understand that doctors are apprehensive about prescribing it... it’s just that these people are in the stone ages when it comes to trt. After my appointment, I did the math, and I would only save about $25 per month for medications ( the VA won’t prescribe HCG, so that would be out of pocket anyway). It may be more costly to go to Defy, but the quality of care is worth it.
