That is a pretty significant increase! Over 2 1/2 times base.

I googled Testapel and found the typical dosage is 150mg - 450mg every 3-6 months, but usually every 3-4 months. Each pellet has 75mg of T. So you must be getting 900mg. Just doing some rough math and you would be getting approx. 900/105 days = 8.6mg T/ day.

That's interesting you didn't get much jump in your total T on 10 pellets (750mg) but it shot up hugely with 12 pellets. Your story is very encouraging!

I believe that it will go up more after your first insertion and subsequently beacause the existing implanted pellets are still adding T (at lower levels).  Combine that with 10 or 12 new pellets and your levels go slightly higher because you now will have let's say 10 old pellets plus 10 new pellets.  Got it?  Makes sense to me.

Yea I thought about that. Testopel's information pamphlet said you absorb about 1/3 the first month, 1/4 the second and 1/6 the third month... so after 3 months you have absorbed 75%. So you basically have 3 pellets left after 3 months... add 12 more and you begin with 15. Eventually leveling out with about 16 at the beginning and ending with 4 after 3 months. But the main thing is finding the dosage that works.

It's usually 10 or 12.  They will start you at 10 and keep there or raise to 12.  Not that complicated.

It sounds like you have had GREAT results and that is very encouraging!

I will ask my urologist how many pellets he would start me on... If the cream is'nt making any progress. I'm not to keen on shots every week, but I have a feeling I need a more powerful application and it sounds like pellets and shots are the two strongest methods.

Once inserted, your body absorbs the T.  Very simple, but it works!
