Great news gold horse.
Please keep us posted on the T levels and T therapy. Let us know how you are addressing the T levels. My doctor was considering Androgel but I anticipate that we won't need it in my tests in a few weeks. I can actually feel my T levels rise over time. I was at 230 in May and that was my last test dates.

Well done! And may peace always be with you...

When during the day was your T level measured? My Uro told me to get it done first thing in the morning. Mine was 483 in the morning and 265 in the afternoon. He said it is always lower in the afternoon and it should only be measured off of blood draw 1st thing in the AM
