My husband had TC twice, and has two nifty scars to prove it - they remind me of those pockets on suit vests. Anyway, he and the doctors are trying to get his testosterone level up to the 400s but that is a guess because he never got a baseline test done! He didn't have one done in all of his follow-up after the first orchiectomy (followed by radiation) six years ago or at the time of his second diagnosis this past year. So, if there is anything I can pass along it's GET YOUR TESTOSTERONE LEVEL CHECKED ASAP! For some guys 300 is normal, for some 600 is normal.
He is using the Androgel and likes it much better than the patch (he uses 3-packs one day and 2-packs the next)but he is running out of places to spread all that gel!
