What's up guys....haven't posted in a lil bit, but always lurk. Anyways...I recently had a disk replacement in my cervical spine (neck) at C4-5. He told me to stop my test inj 2 weeks before surgery...which I did (actually a month+ earlier and did a PCT to give me body a little break ect, which I do from time to time). Now after being discharged the other day, his follow up notes say not to restart TRT until June, WTF! I asked why, and his office mngr says it can causes blood clots, which I obviously DO NOT WANT lol. My question is...trt is supposed to put you in normal ranges, so If I'm in the normal range...why would there be additional risk? I've also read Testosterone helps healing after surgery, so I'm confused.
My only thoughts are that this surgeon isn't familiar with hormones/TRT (which is obvious) and is being extra cautious.
On another note...since stopping TRT, my libido and erections have gone to shit! Even Viagra and Cialis only work 1/2 the time, because there's no real desire. I "want" to have sex because I know should, but there's really no drive.....which especially sucks, because I have this new hot young GF who LOVES to fuck lol. She's been cool about it, but I need to be up an running again ASAP before her coolness wears off! lol
Nice to see some fellow "Frankensteins" here, as I had cervical surgery about 8 months ago - C4/5 and C5/6. Totally fuct me up, to the point where it's now got me ON TRT and HGH. I never would have imagined that I'd ever be on HRT, but after my surgery, I had a laundry list of weird shit going on with my body, including hormonal imbalances.
Anyhow, here I am now, on a forum all about TRT, HGH, and anabolics lol! =)
Kind of wish I knew about all this before my surgery, as I would have definitely gotten HGH at least to help heal faster!
