I went to my local Urologist Dr. S yesterday and after 10 years still in the ZERO Club.
We also discussed my AUS put in my Dr Montague at Cleveland Clinic
Dr S said all reports looked good and then he checked the AUS by checking where activation pump was and then applied pressure to the reservoir area and asked me to cough - NO LEAKS - so he was pleased with that.
We discussed the drips but I know most of them are do to not enough patience and shaking off .
Otherwise he was pleased with what he saw.
I thanked him for the stricture clean-out in Sept which forced me to get the AUS.
I was activated March 22, 2011 so little over two months and pleased.
The last subject we discussed was Testosterone Levels and Supplements - saw allot of discussion on this here
There are several things to consider
1) Protocol was cancer free for 10 years before T supplements
2) There were several concerns with T
c) Heart disease
studies have shown T does not affect these
Dr S did not recommend because most of the benefits were not quantified only qualified
If I take T - I feel stronger, hornier, more muscular, better - subjective but he hadn't read any studies which had measurables
Therefore, he did not prescribe T for his paitents
Well all is well that ends well
