    A higher dose would be cool, my main concern is that it isn't extremely high when I go in because of the 2000mg I took over the coarse of six weeks before the 23rd . I hear that the test C stays with ya for awhile . The last thing I want is for the doc to make me cut back

    I understand and I am far from an expert on this so maybe others can chime in. You could always lower your dose to 50mg per week for a couple of weeks and then after your last injection wait about ten days before your blood work.

    If the DR wont give you 200 per week then do 100mg per week you will feel much better than 200mg every two weeks thats retarded

    Yeah that's what I'm gathering as I do more and more research. I think what ill do is take just 100mg and wait about 10 days before I get my blood work. Hopefully that will set me up to get a script for 200mg per wk.

    Since I'm supposed to take it every two weeks should I do it every two weeks twice and so on on just two weeks then ten days. Lol am I making sense ?

    I am on 200mg every week and I self inject 100mg every 3 days so what I did was two weeks prior to blood work I only did half a dose each week then waited another 12 days before blood tests and I was still over 400.

    When I started out I was on 200mg ever two weeks but I basically just told my doctor that I wanted the max dose because I felt like i was up and down all the time and he said fine and gave me 200mg every week and told me that I could inject every 3 days to keep levels even more stable.

    I stopped my T three weeks ago to get my levels down because I know they where super high. Anyone know if that could cause negative side effects nausea, upset stomach etc.. or maybe I'm just coming down w something

    Cas, some of those syptoms sound like test flu when you mistakenly inject into the bloodstream. They shouldn't last for very long though. Perhaps you had another bug at the same time.

    So the doc doubled my testosterone today which is cool but my blood work came back a little janky I think probably because I was loading with a really high dose and then stopped altogether three weeks before getting my levels checked. My bad cholesterol was high (wich is weird for me) by blood protein was low and my blood pressure was through the roof. Any thoughts ?

    You have to get copies of all your lab-work every time you have labs run. Key the results into a spreadsheet and track over time. This active participation on your part will pay big dividends in understanding your health and your body. In my opinion.
