I dunno, you appear to be six years out from your surgery based upon your signature. It is probably safe for your to take testosterone by now. I too have low T, level was at 230 the only time I had it tested. I am only 2 1/2 years out from surgery, all zeros so far. I have definate depression and lethargy, probably from the low T. My surgeon said he would give me T if I wanted it, my internist thought that was a bad idea. 2 different opinions for sure. My wife has major depression and has lost interest in sex for the most part, so once/month with trimix seems fine for us. If you and your wife want a more active sex life T maybe the answer. For the depression you can take pills, also have a bone scan to check for bone loss, I have mild bone loss, take 2 calcium pills/day. Taking T at your stage is probably safe......
My age= 52 when this all happened.
