You might remember me as the long-winded, pot-smoking, overweight, low-t sufferer who was injected with 400 mg of cypianate on 4/6/15 by a urologist after a month of Androgel didn't work. Doc scheduled me to come back on 5/11 for another injection (I don't know the long-term protocol planned for me.)
This brings me to my point: I called the doc today and spoke to the condescending nurse lady. I didn't remember them instructing me to do labs befor 5/11 appt so I was calling to clarify. She informed me they don't do labs until 6 months after I started THT. I'm not kidding.
I told her that I'd been doing a little research, and their plan seemed absurd. She said it was their common practice: as are injections every 4 weeks or two weeks. I asked her if what I'd read on here and in Peak T's papers was true and that the high dose and length of time before my next injection was a counter-productive protocol and that my estrogen/estradiol (which is it?) was going to negate the injection. She became rigid and said no. I asked her if my weight/lifestyle could possibly be affecting my testosterone to the point that the doc would prescribe TRT and she got defensive. I told her I was nervous about my treatment and that I wanted to talk to the doc (which is what I pressed for when I first talked to her.)
So, he's calling me tomorrow. What do I say? What do I ask? Please keep in mind the following;
If I need TRT he is pretty much it, I believe. I reside in a place that doesn't have many options. I do not believe my insurance will pay for online testosterone shopping. I don't believe I'm in a position to fire him...yet.
I am working toward altering my lifestyle. Making some real strides. Won't happen overnight, and I already started the TRT....so ideally I should have waited to start TRT until I was totally fit, but I honestly didn't know about it / do the research first like I should have.
Been about 23 days...haven't felt much. A little more libido possibly, but it really wasn't bad to begin with.
Any ideas you have for info I should try to get from the urologist would be greatly appreciated!
