Questions about bloodwork and plan for self administering TRT

So, I'm going to be going in to the VA for my yearly dr apt, and am going to mention some of my previous bloodwork, IRT low-ish T and low E2 ( ).

I do not anticipate my doc being particularly proactive about this stuff, so will be planning on getting some pre-TRT bloodwork on my own. I typically use PrivateMDLabs, and get the basic panel (CBC, test, E2, etc). since I'm getting older (41), I'm think of getting a PSA test. also, debating on the value of getting DHEA-S and CRP levels checked.... anything else? I do get cholesterol, vitamin D and thyroid levels checked 1-2 times a year at my regular doc or work physical.

Also, my plan to self administer TRT will be 200 mg test cyp 1x week, and HCG 500 IU 4 days later. my hope there is to get 1) good testosterone levels and 2) good E2 levels, which have been historically low for me. (obviously I will adjust the cyp as needed, or add in an AI if my E2 spikes).
