So I got the pellets yesterday. The numbing shot was nasty but then there was no pain during the procedure. However, there was lots of pushing and wiggling back there and it freaked me out. I was afraid he'd push past the numb spot but he didn't. The nurse told me that never happens. I was pretty nervous but now that I know what to expect, I hope it goes easier next time.
He used six 200mg pellets (1,200mg total- does this seem high?) and I'm sealed up with a large clear bandage. There is lots of bleeding, but it is all sealed under this bandage.
Whatever he used for the anesthetic must have been strong, because even at bed time I did't feel anything. However, it wore off and I could not get comfortable and had a crummy night of sleep. Couldn't get up to work out, so came into work early. It hurts to sit. Hopefully this will get better today.
Something has been off this last week - either my T or my E2. Last tested about 6 weeks ago I was at 14 for E2 and I went from two pills a week to one. The doc has told me not to take any Arimidex and will test all my levels in one month. At that time, I will have been off of wheat for 2 months, so I hope to see my insulin and triglycerides drop - we'll see. He left the HCG shots optimal and I think I'll get off them.
Since it takes up to two weeks for the pellets to kick in, I will continue my two tubes of Testim for about 10 days.
I'll post more when I know more.
