Yeah, I've been on T therapy (shots not gel) since 4 months after surgery. I was on TRT for years before PCa. Had a heck of a time finding a uro that would write the script.
This report verifies what a minority of urologists believe. Many will never give T therapy to PCa patients. They believe that testosterone feeds any remaining cancer cells and will cause a recurrance. So a patient with low testosterone has to decide if the risk is worth the reward of having a liveable life.
