Does anyone know of a good Endocrinologist or urologist in houston tx area?? I'm having a very hard time finding one.
I have been using one at Kelsey Seybold for the past 18 months, though i may switch to someone else i found through my insurance.
Looking for the same.
Tired of Cenegenics and their very high fee just to send me 320mg of Test C each month.. even if it is over night!
Anyone tried a men's health clinic??
I may devote some time next week calling around and going to visit.
Its very frustrating I have an appointment next month with a urologist in Houston. Hopefully he's knowledgeable if I have any luck I'll let you know.
They have a few "Low T Centers" all over the area: http://www.lowtcenter.com/
I went to see Urologist Dr. Chapman in Pearland (Houston Metro Urology, Pearland location) and he was willing to start me on 200 mg/week Test Cyp for my low T, but refered me to a Dr. Lipshultz in the med center for Clomid restart since he wasnt too familiar with Clomid but thought it could help.
I couldnt get an appt with Lipshultz so I did some research and found Dr. Russell Williams
I went to see Dr. Russell Williams and he suggested a varicocele repair (havent done it yet but may in the future). Also hes familiar with Clomid and HCG therapies and put me on Clomid.
After asking around in the area it appears that as far as Urology/Fertility doctors, Dr. Lipshults and Dr. Williams are the top 2.
Sorry I cant help you with the endo, but these 2 urology docs are very knowledgeable on TRT/HRT in the area.
Umberto, I'd be leery of any doc that wants to start you out at 200/week. At that dose, I'd anticipate e2 issues, and also hemoglobin and hematocrit issues.
It's very rare IMO that someone NEEDS 200/week to make them feel better. Wants and NEEDS are two very different things.There are of course outliers, but that's a hefty beginning dose.
There are of course guys who just want to do permacycles and call it trt.
<---- 60 every 4 days...
He definitely said we could do 200 mg once a week "because of my size" .
Can having more make you feel worse because of E2 conversion? Or what reason?
Dude I'm pumped I found this board again. Used to be on it a long time ago before I had low t but glad to rediscover and all the good bros that are willing to help.
E2 conversion also varies from person to person. I can only give you my experience. I'll keep it short because most of these guys already know my story. I started at 100 once per week. After testing, my endo upped my dose to 150/week: these were the bad times. I was a bloated 212, e2 was in the 70's and I just felt like s.hit. Total T was in the 1100's - stupid high. My hgb and hct were off the charts - endo said I was a stroke waiting to happen. I started doing some reading about dose/frequency of injections and came up with 50/every 4 days. Total T was 730 1 day before injection - everything was perfect.
Last labs had me at ~550 1 day before injection so we upped my dose to 60/every 4 days. I have no problem going back down to 50 if labs say so.
My advice: start low and talk to your doc about more frequent injections so you don't have bad peaks and troughs. I'll bet you a dollar you won't need as much as you think you will by injecting more frequently...
This is very similar to varicose viens women get in their legs except this happens in your ball sack.
I got an appt setup with Lipshultz later this month. I actually ran into Dr. Tung Shu (hes a memorial hermann urological surgeon) at the UTHealth rec center gym and he suggested I look into Arimidex instead of Clomid for a mono therapy. He said Larry Lipshultz is the "guru" for low T fertility treatment. Seemed to know his stuff and was kind enough to shoot the sh!t with me at the gym about low T. He also said he does varicocele correction using the daVinci robot. He pioneered its use for that surgery. Pretty strong dude too. I actually might go see him as well.
Houston is definitely a great place for medical care.
