Trying this again. I had pellets injected 2 months ago, felt great for a week or 2, then the pellets all came out. Stepped out of the shower, and one at a time, they shot out of the incision site. Just had new ones inserted yesterday. Procedure is painless, however, next few days suck! I would recommend the pellets assuming they don't come out again.

My doctor first started me out on Androgel and it helped some, but I never got the numbers my doctor was looking for. My doctor then suggested that we try Testopel. I had the procedure done about two months ago and I was sore for almost two weeks and two of th ... Show Full Comment
