Re: lots of trouble

And after Quadmix, there's Pentamix. Not sure what your urologist means by "you're at the highest he can go." There ARE stronger formulas by far. Does he simply feel he's taken you as far as he's willing to take you? Are there additional underlying issues going on that preclude stronger mi...

Re: AMS 700 information

I was given all the paperwork after my implant surgery. It had all the "peal-off stickers" from my implant placed in the appropriate boxes. These showed the Serial #; size; the RTE info, etc. At my followup appointment with my surgeon, I specifically recall asking him if there was anything...

Re: I'm Bionic! Quincy's journal.

Quincy... for you to be keeping this journal since just hours post-op shows just how GREAT it all went and is going! You sound amazing too! I am beyond thrilled at your reports but you know I'm not surprised. It sounds like everything is going exactly as I shared with you! I would've felt awful if a...

Re: Worst Case Scenarios

I've had my implant for 3 years now. Never researched what infection might imply or require before getting my implant. And to go looking into it now seems a rather moot point. I'll cross that bridge if or when infection occurs. I knew my AMS implant itself was treated with some antibacterial called ...

Re: Insurance coverage

Medicare Primary and Aetna Secondary here. I hit my out-of-pocket deductible within the first month of each year just based on prescriptions. My implant was paid-in-full: Surgeon Fee; Surgical Suite; Hospital Overnight Stay; Cost of Implant itself. Was approved right away... no appeal required. No p...

Re: Testosterone shots.

All that may be true, but I no longer buy the GNC packs. I put together my own "pack" of vitamins (listed above). And I had a good check-up this year with T-levels in the "normal" range. Putting 2+2 together, I am assuming my vitamins did the trick. May very well be, Grandhaven....

Re: Testosterone shots.

I used to get the shots to bring my T-level up to the normal range. But then the insurance stopped paying for them, so I stopped. I can't say I noticed much change, but perhaps my libido did go up with the shots. So instead I started on a GNC Test./energy pack of vitamins. I noticed more energy fro...

Re: Testosterone shots.

Contrary to what's been posted, i do NOT have to go to the doctor to get my shots... I got my first shot at the doctor's office and an rx for the needles, syringes and test right then. Filled them, and aside from the minor chore of having to give myself a shot once a week, it's no big deal. I'm not...

Re: Testosterone shots.

What is the best time to do the testosterone shots. Early when you first get up or at night before you go to bed or does it make any difference? Bionic Rocketman. I've done both my shot as well as my husband's at various times of the day. Never makes any difference. You figure you're basically inje...

Re: Testosterone shots.

I've been on testosterone gel for over eleven years. 7 years with Testim and 4 years with Androgel. I preferred the Testim it seemed to work much better but the insurance moved everything to Androgel. Now the gel doesn't seem to be working as well as before. Hi Bionic... First - I'd seriously have ...
