@ 800-1000 have fun going Chris Benoit on someone.
RLD, honest to God, many of your posts make me laugh out loud ... in a good way. I like your humor. I also think your wife is crazy but that's for another thread ...
I have sincerely tried to do my due diligence in this regard. Minncouple has been a great resource and sounding board.
I am hopeful that HRT will mitigate some of my symptoms. I have no expectation of magical elixir results.
I would like to resolve my sexual issues. I would like to be able to continue working out without the joint pain I have picked up in the last 2 years, and I would like to know if it has an impact on my energy level and ability to stay focused.
Watched a documentary on Netflix called Bigger, Stronger, Faster
Great documentary about performance enhancing drugs, told (in my opinion) equitably and fairly, by a non-user. 'Roid Rage' and the Benoit case, along with others, was addressed. They even showed footage from some old Ben Affleck movie where he busts up rooms and throws women around ... all due to taking anabolic steroids. According to the research, this simply isn't true. Again, I don't state that as an advocate. I don't know if I'm an advocate yet. But I do want to be informed.
I have been trying to do more research online, and have found Minncouple's opinion echoed elsewhere. That the pellets and gels although different methods of delivery, accomplish the same thing as intramuscular injections ... only they are much more pharma friendly, meaning they are cash cows.
I did discover an Aging Center in Boston, and I may make an appointment with these folks. My urologist just hasn't been terribly responsive. Can't shake the feeling that he is more into marketing than problem solving.
