Comment:
I have a love-hate relationship with Testopel. I feel great for 3-4 months, and forget about low T. Then it plummets for about a week or two until the next implant. After the implant I am sore for a week, and one time I had an infection. I think I'm switching to injections. My upper butt cheek hurts and I'm sick of it.

The insertion was nothing. The doc did a good job. Healing was without consequence. The first month, I though I was on a placebo, and I could feel myself falling as the Testim left my system and was not replaced. The second month was excellent. I was running half marathons. The third month has been a steady decline, and it's the change that I feel. Running is not much of an option now. If this ... Show Full Comment

The main reason I went for this procedure was to avoid missing to give myself the ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I am 62 and have been using Testopel pellets for about 18 months. I felt really bad all of the time and was told I had fibromyalgia. My urologist had me do a questionaire, after which, he checked my T level. I was at about 230. I opted for the inplants. They have been great! However, they only last about 90 days, for me. But my insurance will cover 4 treatments per year, so it works out. I ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was diagnosed with low T a couple months ago and have tried gels and injections but both were a pain to keep up on. Last month I did a Testopel implant of 14 pellets. The procedure is painless. I have read many reviews of people and the horrible "pain" that comes after the implant procedure and for me that was simply not the case. Sure, the day after and the next couple days you are so ...
