Hey buddy. When I started HT it was just a shot in hip and back to work. One hour at the doc's office and back on the road. I did have a funny experience after my first shot. As we left the office and were about two miles down the road, no more than 15 min. from the time I got the shot, I had my first hot flash. My wife laughed so hard she was in tears. All she could say was " welcome to my world".
I have gone from monthly shots to a shot every two months to a shot every four months. I now get one shot every six months. It's not in the hip but it ain't bad at all. You can have mood swings and suffer some depression, so have someone watch you closely so you can get that in check quickly. On the upside, I have become one heck of a decorator around the house. We remodled the kitchen and laundry room. I did the decorating. I looks wonderful. Not bad for an old football jock.
You will do fine and be seeing zeros very soon.
Go with God in your heart and...................War Eagle.
