hello Rocco !
Welcome to the Path of Pellets for HRT! I am now in my 4th year of SottoPelle HRT, and haven't felt better since my 30's. I get them every 6 months. Even at 5 month point, my T is still up to 850 ng/dl or better. A few tests, the T hadn't dropped below 1,000.
I have had zero problems with the pellets. Both my Endos are surgeons and trained in the SottoPelle method. they know which end of trocar to use.
My Endo started me with bloodwork 4-5 weeks BEFORE and AFTER the pellet insert, to adjust/check the compounded recipe which is specifically mine. I also get 1 pellet of DHEA inserted. Now, Ibecause I am so stable with bloodlab numbers, I get bloodwork done just at four weeks after the pellets.
also, I'm on 300 IU human Chorionic Gonadotropin Sub-Q monday to Friday, and .05 milligram Letrozole once a week. See my signature block for last bloodwork numbers.
Again, this took almost three years to get good numbers, and I was God-blessed to have two sincerely awesome Endo's and my urologist on my side.
So, stick with it, make sure you get the Trifecta of pellets, hCG, and an AI, and periodic bloodwork.
Have some Fun this week, too !
keep us posted! Cheers! -Sam D.
