We just dont know much what goes on behind the blood brain  arrier.  I think I have seen evidence of fhings getting reset but who knows.
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE BOOK ON TRT/TESTOSTERONE:
https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Versus-Testosterone-Therapy-Myer/dp/1523210532/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1499116128&sr=8-1&keywords=natural+versus+testosterone+therapy
And check out my New Peak Testosterone Program: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/peak_testosterone_program
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

Having the pellets implanted in a couple days.  50yo male here with T levels around 320.  What can I expect?  This is the first type of testosterone treatment I have tried.  Kind of nervous.

I had the pellets.  This was my experience.

For a good week or so, your butt will be sore.  I mean, sore to the point where it is "difficult" (not impossible) to get up and down sitting in a chair, get in and out of bed, get in and out of your car, stuff like that.  (You attempt to shift around while keeping your legs straight/stiff so as not to bend and aggravate the injection site.)  After about a week or so, that is gone.

My pellets lasted a long, long time.  I think they were "supposed to" last 6 months.  And I got about 18 months out of them.  Which was incredible.

You also get a little scar on your butt, which I was not crazy about.  But, what can you do?  I did not mind one scar, but I was not willing to get two, three, four, five scars, etc., with each repeated procedure.  They have to "move" the site of pellet injection with each subsequent procedure.

At the end of the day, I decided that the advantages did not out-weigh the disadvantages, so I stopped pellets and I went with another method.

Good luck.

Let me know if any further questions!

Question for you: why did you (or your doctor) decide to start with pellets as your first exposure to TRT?  Usually, people start with a much less invasive method.

Best of luck.  His symptoms sound a lot like mine (the specific ones), though I have improved somewhat.  His story gives me some hope.
43 years old
5'7", was 220 pounds when trouble started, now down to 165
Trouble began with abrupt ED Early May '15
Initial T level 130
Started Clomid in hopes of rebooting system June '15
Currently taking 25 mg eod and .25 mg Arimidex every 4 days
T level 480 or so at last reading
ED in check with 2.5 mg Cialis eod and supplements:
POM juice, L-Cit, Pycnogenol

Morning anxiety currently in check with GABA taken every night

Biggest current worry is heart health:
Aortic stenosis (very mild for now)
CAC score 156(!) at age 42
Lp(a) is a shockingly bad 390 nmol/L -- TRIPLE the "extremely high risk" level!
Homozygous for the bad "G" variant of SNP rs10455872, which increases Lp(a) as well as odds for aortic stenosis and coronary artery lesions. 
I think I know what trashed my heart...

40 mg Crestor and baby aspirin every day
CoQ-10, Vitamin K2, and Kyolic Aged Garlic Extract every day too
Walking 10,000 steps a day
