My rejuvenation clinic passed me on to one of their new Doctors. My first visit with him we only talked, no physical exam. My first visit with him I felt fine…Life was GREAT!
He ordered a blood test - results showed to be somewhere near 1000 for total test. (3 days after 150 MG enanthate) I never saw a copy of that test result ...so I’m only going by what he said.
He then cut me off all testosterone - put me on HCG and Arimidex for 45 days. (see enclosed prescripts, paying close attention to the directions….) He said I am going to get you off your “testosterone rollercoaster” ride.
He was right about the “ride“…but it was straight down.
After 45 days...I cant describe how depressed, tired, no libido, and generally just not give a damn about anything.
He then ordered a new blood test (results attached) and checked my adrenals with a 24 hour salvia test. (results attached)
He told me my Cortisol & DHEA was bottom-line and that was why I was not producing testosterone in the first place.
Somehow I felt it was the other way around, as a drop from 1000 to 66 in 45 days might just be a shock to my system.
My last conversation with this DR. after these results - he put me on 10 mg tabs of hydrocortisone and 100mg of enanthate per week. Told me to take the 1st tab at 7am, I told him I don’t get up til 9am….he told me to start getting up earlier….and hell its hard enough to get up at 9am. He says the tabs and getting up at 7am will give me more energy…wtf.
As you can see by this post I am not really happy - I don’t claim to know more than a DR, but I did feel good when I went to see him and 45 days later I felt like crap…and I dropped nearly 20 lbs. (also did not go to the gym…what for??)
I don’t blame the Dr’s, in my opinion it is the laws that are preventing DR’s from practicing medicine like they see fit….just because of a few people abusing medications. Dr’s are so afraid to prescribe any injectable test these days due to the current events in the news.
I think my Drs intentions were valid…but…my only argument was that I have been on testosterone injections for over 3 years. My testicles may never do a job for me. (let me see….63 yr old man with blueberry sized testicles…hmmmm)
I told him I don’t need large testicles they only get in my way and I already have 4 children.
After the 45 days he has put me through just so I can look good in the hot tub is not worth it to me. (only a depressed 63 yr old man can say that) LOL
I am now back on 150 mg of enanthate and arimidex 1.5 mg twice a week.
I’m back in the gym 3 days a week and working hard to get back all that I lost. I do feel better now…but still a little bitter about my last DR experiment.
Questions and comments welcome….
