    This is my second go round with the pellets. I was surprised to learn that the bumps I felt under my skin were lesions, ( I thought that the bumps were the pellets) and that they might never go away. It has been 7 months and my first injection site still has the bumps. My doctor told me that we will have to change up the locations of the injections because the bumps or lesions is a side effect. ... Show Full Comment

    After my first review and the pain that followed. Recovery took three weeks and the high test felt great for one month. Fuller muscles energy and drive. Nearing my third month and all has fizzed out. Back to no energy sex drive muscles deflated and workouts are a struggle again. Going back for more. Have to use some gels until my next ass mutilation! Bring on the pain!

    Had 16 pellets planted, too many! Wound healed then re-opened and some pellets extruded. Meanwhile, soreness at injection site all over again and no real positive effects are apparent. Possibly the 16 should have been inserted 8 Left 8 Right to avoid crowded injection site. However, since no effects are seen this far along, I am doubting that it was an appropriate treatment.

    50 year old male, testosterone 326, first implant by physician, 8 - 75mg, site sore 30 days, extruded one pellet, after 2 months 356, disapointing. 2nd implant done by RN at HRC, 8 - 200mg, sore 4 days, no problem, in fact easy 5 mins. I think the first implant was done improperly because the 2nd one was and is easy. Waiting for the next test to see how my rate is rising, not too much improvement ... Show Full Comment
