I have made a couple posts in the past regarding my varicocele, low testosterone, and the small lump under my nipple. They should be easy enough to find...
Brief version...I am 24 years old and had low T (around 240) varicoceles, and the small lump (cant see it by just looking, but its definitely there...doc said its not gyno, but i still take tamoxifen for it)...I have been an athlete my whole life, and I knew before any tests that I must have low T because I wasn't building muscle or making gains for the amount of time I spent in the gym.
I had a bilateral varicocelectomy back in May to reduce pain, and to get my T back on track. Post-op my doc put me on 20 mg Tamoxifen/day, and 1 mg Arimidex/day. That worked decently enough, and it got my T up to around 650...but I still didn't have much energy, wasn't feeling like I was getting much stronger, and just didn't feel like I used to feel before I noticed the low T symptoms. And my doc said that I can't take Arimidex forever, so we decided to try TRT.
8 weeks ago I started this:
200 mg Testosterone Cypionate/wk
500 IU HCG Every Other Day
20 mg Tamoxifen/day
I have felt great while on this regimen. I have energy, I feel strong in the gym, and I feel like I think a 24 year old should feel.
Here are my questions:
1. How long can I safely, and most beneficially, stay on that regimen?
From what I have read on these boards, I should not stay on any one thing for too long. I am thinking that 10 weeks of the T Cyp. and HCG being run concurrently, followed by 4 weeks of Arimidex is the way to go. That would be a repeating regimen of course. How does that sound to you guys who have a lot more experience than I do??? I need to know pretty soon, because I have to talk with my doc about it, and reorder my prescriptions if necessary.
2. If my suggestion (10 weeks of T/HCG and 4 weeks Arimidex) is not the best solution...then what do you suggest?
Thanks a lot for any help! I am really looking forward to reading the responses!
