In the past members noted above have discussed the potential for Testosterone Replacement Therapy for their low testosterone after doing tx. I just got test results back showing I am at the borderline of low normal, and low....about 300 ng/dl. After doing a LOT of reading about T ranges, and replacement, symptoms from low 'T', etc. I am beginning to think this may be a major part of my post-tx problems. The sx for low Testosterone are plentiful, and can be overwhelming.
My question is this: has anyone yet addressed these low testosterone issues, using TRT, and how did it work. Did it relieve symptoms, reverse sexual problems, provide renewed energy and interest, increase libido??? I had read that one person on the forum used the gel, and after months with good results developed high blood pressure. That would be a concern for many of us that have developed metabolic syndrome after tx.
I am going to see a very good endocrinologist that worked with my Thyroid issues, and got that under control. I always wondered why that Thyroid adjustment did not alleviate my symptoms..at all!! Well maybe the glandular damage goes a lot farther than just thyroid problems. Pituitary, Adrenals, Gonadal, etc. , it all points back to the symptoms, and the low 'T' results. Getting on the Testosterone therapy has many cautions and seems a bit intimidating...both from a side effects standpoint, and from a long term, life long need perspective.
Any experiences out there with this issue post-tx? Hey Jim, are you still around eyeballing this place from time to time? Copyman?? any others that have had direct experience with the low T???
