There are a few of us that are on testosterone replacement therapy after prostatectomy. I was on testosterone shots for years before PCa My original uro/sugeon was dead set against it and made me go off T cold turkey. My life immediately went down the tube. No energy, no sex drive and severe depresion. I was at the end of my rope.
I saw some postings here on HW between Swimom and another PCa guy with low T and knew that I didn't have to live like that. After several fruitless conversations with my uro, I found another uro that went along with replacement therapy. I've been with him since 2007 and have had zero psa's since then. I know I would not be here today if I hadn't found this forum and got to talk to Swim.
