Thanks for informing me S.E. on this gentelman and his problem!! Yes rjbeck, I know all about
low testosterone! I've been using a
T- replacement of one sort or another for over 5 years now! Yes your 330 is low but still above castration levels so be glad you found out now before it got any worse!! One thing I never used is the patch for T-replacement so I don't know how fast it will work on you? I can tell you that I inject testosterone intermuscular and even this way it taked a couple days for me to feel better if my range slips down to around 300! So I wouldn't expect you to all of a sudden feel better like you do when you take a pain pill or something, it doesn't work that way!! I used the jells for a couple years but when it got to the point of spreading that stuff all over my upper torso daily and still wasn't getting my T-level up enough I switched to shots> Much easier!
One thing I'll tell you about T-replacement that I'm not sure your Dr. told you (Mine didn't!) is that the more you use a replacement, your already lazy testicles become even lazier (and smaller & smaller!) and you will have to take more and more replacement to get the same effect!!! When I started taking the shots it was every 2 mo. b efore I'd drop to around 300, now I have to have a shot every 3 weeks to keep from dropping to or below 300!! Don't get me wrong, I'm not *****ing at all! The shots are well worth not feeling the affects of low T as you already know!!! You will feel better and I would guess your dr. will get you up to around 500~600 on your blood tests and try to keep you there!!
One other VERY important thing, How old are you and if you are over 40, have you had your prostate checked yet???? Good luck and if you have any other questions> Ask, I'll be around if you need me!!!
