As my TT and free T have been falling after 4 month mark of Testopel implant,free T in particular; down to 88 from 194 five weeks ago, I told my urologist that I wanted to resume test enanthate shots, 20mg IM, daily in order to keep my level stable, plus, I like the control that shots offer versus pellets. He was fine with that. My question, which probably exists on some thread on this forum: inject every day or every other day? I don't mind the shots. Do them in the glutes. No discomfort as compared to injecting in the quads. I use a 25g needle.
I saw a thread where Regulus did a mathematical analysis of ED versus EOD versus E3D. Statistically, it seemed a wash. But my urologist, who prescribes shots and gels, likes pellets because they achieve a steady state and he's seen good results in men for whom nothing else worked. Injecting every day, I believe, can accomplish that steady state just as well, along with being able to adjust the dose up or down, as labs and patient response, warrant.
I'm also changing to AARP Medicare Supplement plan in January, so Medicare will be my primary insurance and I don't know if they cover pellets. Above all, shots are just easy! A week after the pellets, my wife said my butt looked like I'd been kicked by a horse.
Hope everyone is fine and making progress on your various protocols.
