    blood work after Testim - is my doc running the right tests?


    I went for blood work after being on Testim for a month, and my endo ordered the following tests:

    total testosterone
    LH
    FSH


    I asked the nurse if he had left out a few things such as e2, free testosterone, and SHBG. She said no, so I called him back later. He said he just wants to know if the Testim is being absorbed, and as far as free testosterone the only way to get an accurate reading is if it were conducted at the Mayo Clinic. I'm kinda worried I have the wrong doctor now. ???

    Oh, and my balls are half the size they were, so I guess my testicles have stopped working? I hate it, I want them back to the size they were even if they weren't that big in the first place. Having grapes down there isn't a good feeling.

    I'm worried about going any further with TRT since I can't find a decent doctor who knows what they're doing. I don't want them to screw my body up. Should I just stop now? Since I've only been on it a month, would it really mess me up if I stopped? Would I lose any of the natural muscle it has taken me 10 years to gain?
