Just got back from a 9 day trip in Australia and catching up. An update on the pellets: now that I have been on Arimidex, I have been feeling pretty good. I would like to see the libido higher, but mood and energy are OK. However, between the 24 hours of travel (each way), scuba diving, 8 hours a day standing at tradeshows, and carrying a heavy packpage - I managed to re-open the incision point. This should be all healed by now - and I heal well in general. I was glad I carried band aids with me because it was bleeding a bit.
Also, after a long day on my feet, it felt a little tender where the pellets are. This went away after some rest so I don't believe there is any infection - it's probably just the irritation to the muscle tissue. The pellets are definitely shrinking.
For me, the pellets don't seem to be worth it...
