Implant not fun. 10 days of pain. Effectiveness wanes at 60 days, rapidly. Thinking about shots 2x weekly. Aveed may be a suitable substitute.

No cardio issues. I will look at the injection ev ... Show Full Comment

Used the gel successfully for 7 years until I went on Medicare which won't pay for the gel but will pay for testopel implant. Incision site is very sore for several weeks and leaves a raised scar. I need implants every 5 months or so to be fine. Lots of energy, good muscle definiti ... Show Full Comment
