2021.09.17 20:26 myfreewheelingalt Gel raised my total T 1000%. Now what?

Well, the gel seems to be getting T into my system just fine. Coming up on my 3-month visit with the endo after starting TRT, I got my latest blood test.

Golly. Doc just did basic blood and T, no estradiol etc. this time around. Hematocrit etc. are fine.
Earlier testing showed TSH, FSH, LH and Prolactin all within range. So the cause of my hypogonadism is still unknown to me, and none of my docs has rushed to follow up, beyond a referral to urology to check out a hydrocele and consult on whether a vasectomy would be a good opportunity tidy up the clutter in my scrotum.
My ankles remain swollen, as they have been for weeks. I'm still tired and sluggish. My joints hurt. My BP is up. My brain is still fuzzier than I'd expect.
My erections are decent when they happen, and my body hair has regained its wooly fullness, but otherwise I'm not feeling like a rock star despite being flush with testosterone. Week 3 was about as good as it got - horny, knees and shoulders felt the best in years, but still tired.
I've got my first face-to-face with the endo next week. I'm thinking my obese ass is aromatizing the fuck out of the fresh and ample testosterone and I'm swimming in estradiol. For those who've had success managing up with a non-personable clinician, how best to steer the conversation to a favorable outcome?

2021.09.17 20:26 MrSnali Pokémon Unite Tournament and League (for fun and to build a community)

Hello again all!
I'm once again asking if anyone would be interested in joining our Pokémon unite league. I've got roughly 25 players atm and we're still trying to figure out teams and everything but I will be starting off with small fun tournaments so everyone can meet new people and figure out who they'd like to team with. After all that we would then create a league format, similar to the NFL, and go from there. This is still all a work in progress but if you are interested in joining please DM me! Thanks 😊

2021.09.17 20:26 Reddituser8018 So let's say I broke a finger, but I disowned that finger would I have really broken a bone?

Just hypothetically of course, if my finger had broken I would immediately not consider it my finger as it is WEAK and FRAIL so I would disown it from my body. Now if I disown it did I ever really break a bone?

2021.09.17 20:26 Maleficent_Focus943 Any Help Please: An Unbearable Itch/Nerve Sensation

29, Male, 5'10" (177.80cm), 185lbs (84kgs), U.S.A.
Hello to anyone who cares to help and/or is possibly suffering from the same thing and needs the same help as I do. I appreciate you taking the time to read this, as it is a shot in the dark considering I have tried next to everything with no resolution to my condition. Was told by many friends to give reddit a shot in finding some aid.
As of about 9 years ago, I have been suffering from a condition that has baffled every doctor I have seen. It started with getting out of showers and after about 3 minutes starting to feel nerve/itch sensations that start in my legs and progress up my back and into my arms, gradually overtaking my body in a swift rage of itching/burning/and embarrassing pain and discomfort. When I try desperately not to itch the spots it flares up, my body starts to force itself to clench in an effort to subdue the pain without touching the spot. Almost every time, I give in though, and the milliseconds of relief turn into spreading of the sensation like wildfire. It truly overtakes me, to the point that at times, I have broken skin and cut myself from the rubbing and scratching. It then started to happen after I would get out of pools, and then progressed to me waking up in the morning with slight sweat around my groin area and start to immediately feel those same sensations in my arms and legs. Then it would simply happen if I was walking for a while, and at the slightest sense of discomfort my body would again, gradually start this relentless sensation. It would go away after about an hour, but I would need to completely seclude myself to calm down, or rush to the coldest shower and lie down in hopes of it stopping (shock the system).
At first I thought it was a dry skin issue so I tried natural, clean moisturizers that obviously had no effect, and even in some instances made it worse. I then thought it was the time of day I would shower, so I strictly took showers at night. No help for the most part. I then started finding articles about blow drying my skin dry instead of towel dry, and realized after months that it was just subsiding in the same amount of time as it normally would with any flare up. I then tried the sun, and finding ways to let it hit my skin during the sensations and again no help. Naturally, I then sought medical help. First I went to my family doctor that tried to understand the condition and had me undergo countless blood work, and send me to a Neurologist in NYC (Weill Cornell Medicine) to discuss things like MS, Neuropathic Itch, Fibromyalgia, Autonomic Neuropathy, etc. They performed an Electromyography, Cervical MRI's, Brain Scans, all to no avail. So, I was prescribed Duloxetine in hopes that would subside most of what they thought was either Fibromyalgia or Small Fiber Neuropathy. After initial dosage of 30mg and upping the dosage to 60mg, there was no real aid, the sensations would still come (but I was in a very very good mood though when I was on it haha).
So, while still consulting this particular Neurologist, I went to another doctor that also prescribed me Lyrica as he thought maybe on top of the tricyclic anti-depressant, anti-seizure medication would really aid me. It was a low dosage, and it seemed to help for the first month...but then it came back with a true vengeance. So, during Quarantine, I slowly weaned myself off of both, and for a while strictly worked out, ate super clean, tried some natural remedies, and OBVIOUSLY it didn't help. Lost decent weight after the meds packed on some pounds though!
During all of this, a referral was sent to the highly acclaimed, very difficult to get into Autonomic Center at Vanderbilt University because there was serious suspicion that I have Autonomic Dysfunction and could really use the expertise of Vandy because that particular center handles some very very strange cases of things. Waited 13 months, they took my standing, sitting, and lying heart rate, did some blood pressure work, took a skin sample and blood work (same as Cornell Medicine) and concluded that it was something idiopathic and that I should just up my dosage of Lyrica. Sick.
Once places started to open up, I sought the advice of an allergist in Nashville, TN where I currently live, and have been for 8 years, to which he thought was a very strange and particular case of hiving under the skin. We started on allergy medication (Xyzal, Allegra, Montelukast) and over the course of about 9 months continued to up the dosage of the medication to an almost insane amount and something i didn't want to do because it just felt like a repeating cycle of which I had been through before. Finally his last recommendation put me over the edge (more allergy meds, higher dosages) and I stopped it, because it was not helping at all.
Ever since then, I have been off of everything, taking daily supplements of Vitamin D3, and Omega 3's, dealing with the pain as it comes, and whenever I feel a flare up using the Wim Hof Breathing Method which seems to help, as long as I catch it quickly, and am in a comfortable environment to truly center myself and try and veer away from the pain while letting the lightheadedness, and blood flow action take full effect over the course of 10 minutes. I had a serious flare up this morning, one that I really couldn't control and had to put myself in a very hot tub of water to just shock my skin and system, and then let the rest of the little pain go away over the course of the next 20 minutes.
To conclude, right now we are still going back and forth with this being my body not being able to figure out temperature changes but that seems unlikely. The only doctors I haven't seen are a heart specialist, I haven't had my liver checked, and I haven't had a FULL scan of my spine (no lumbar no thoracic) as it hasn't been anything recommended by the doctors I have seen. I have a history of heart disease in my family, and some circulatory issues (very clod hands and feet), so the heart specialist is next. I am otherwise a pretty healthy person, that drinks one cup of coffee a day, I workout when I can, drinks on the weekends, and leads as normal a life as a musician and artist can lead.
I am completely exhausted mentally and physically after these ordeals. The relentless nature of the pain and discomfort in these episodes drains me and defeats me. I've stopped the crying, but I truly feel insane when it is happening. I know it's not in my head. This is something I refuse to believe is a condition I just need to live with, but if it is I would like to exhaust every option first.
Thank you so much for reading this, and I appreciate any advice/insight/opinion you could give. In the time I typed this, the pain and itch stopped, and I can finally stop talking.
Hope you are healthy, and more importantly happy. - Dan

2021.09.17 20:26 AndreasBeat Update / Cake DeFi platform – DFI coins - what works fine and what not

Hi community
As you may know from my previous comments I’m invested since 6 months in DFI coins via the Cake DeFi platform.
First of all: I’m not the super technical guy but I was searching for a coin/blockchain to invest and get the best possible interest.
That’s why I started with Cake DeFi. I can buy DFI and log this amount via Cake DeFi platform to the DFI blockchain. The “technical stuff” will be done by this company.
I do the option staking: Means I have DFI coins and Cake DeFi platform use this for the blockchain. The blockhain create an interest for my logged coins. (not the platform Cake DeFi create this – it is the blockhain) This gives me at the moment an interest of over 70%
Freezer option: I also used the second option called “Freezer”. With this option you “freeze” you coin from 1 month up to 10 years. As longer you do, as more interest you get. At the moment I get for my 10 years freezed coins around 196% interest.
I get the interest on the DFI coins paid out twice a day. Now I can decide for myself whether I want to pay out the interest or whether I want to reinvest the coins to the capital again.
It is also important to mention that you can pay off your capital and / or interest in full or in part at any time. So you can for example change the DFI Coins to other crypto currencies and then to EUR / Dollar / CHF, etc. at any time.
What you have to know: Because you are on the Cake DeFi platform you don’t have your own privat key. Cake DeFi has this. If the company is broke, your coins are lost. The probability is very limited but you have to know that.
You should also not buy DFI coins on the platform CakeDefi. Buy BTC or ETH on an exchange and send it to your Cake DeFi wallet. There you can swap to DFI coins. Much less costs with this scenario.
Do you have questions? Send me a PM, I really try to answer and inform you more about this topic.
You can test it under follow link. You get $10.- for free in DFI coins to start. No risk for you and you need not your own money.
Have a nice day!
Regards, Andreas

2021.09.17 20:26 absurdmcman Fistula requiring an operation to insert a Seton - how to go from private to NHS?

TLDR - As the title suggests, I have recently found out that I have a fistula that will require an operation to insert a seton. After months of trying and failing to get information within the NHS, my wife and I took the decision to dig into our savings and saw a colorectal surgeon privately. An MRI scan confirmed my abscess had developed into a fistula. Given how many muscles it cuts across, the surgeon says the only realistic path is to insert a Seton for 12-18 months.
I will need this operation soon I'm told, but will struggle to pay for it privately, so looking for information on how easy it will be up take my diagnosis and MRI scan back to the NHS to schedule the necessary procedure? Does anyone here have any information on how this works and who I should contact first within the system to get moving?
Many thanks in advance for any help or guidance!
Fuller information: I developed an abscess about 4 months ago, after a number of misdiagnoses (NHS 111, GP, A&E) I ended up septic and back in A&E one evening a few days after my previous visit where I was given an emergency procedure to cut open and drain the area the following morning.
As I understand, the abscess was the size of a large grapefruit or so (was sadly never shown any diagrams or scans etc). I was offered no follow up consultation by the surgical team at the hospital, just discharged and instructed to continue attending daily dressings with nurses until the wound had healed.
I've subsequently been going in every day for 4 months for dressing changes. About 2 months ago the healing stalled in part of the abscess, and a long but increasingly thin channel remained stubborn for another month. Attempts to get back to see either the original surgeons who operated on me or a colorectal surgeon were rebuffed.
I then got a stomach infection (I think) about three weeks ago which resulted in very intense diarrhea (every 30 minutes to 1 hour on the first day, every hour or so for the next couple) for a few days, after which the abscess wound had apparently worsened. The wound got progressively worse over the next few days until it was very painful, hot, bloody / oozing, and according to one of the nurses who'd seen me at least a couple of times a week since the operation, quite pungent with a bad odour (which hadn't been the case at any stage before). It was also approximately twice as deep (3cm > 5.5cm) as the previous time this nurse had packed it the week before, and substantially wider too. She and a GP she called in to inspect me then sent me back to A&E with a note saying I needed further inspection by surgeons, IV antibiotics, and possibly another surgery.
After an all night wait I saw the surgeons in the morning who informed me that they couldn't do anything for me, and sent me away with oral antibiotics and an instruction to get a GP referral to a colorectal surgeon as the only path to getting an MRI needed to establish what was happening. The GP agreed to do so the next day and proceeded, only to find out it was a six month wait for the next appointment.
My wife and I decided then that I couldn't wait six months given how much worse the wound had gotten so quickly and the impact having to have daily visits had been having on my capacity to live and work, and so went into our savings to see a colorectal surgeon privately.
We saw him late last week, and had an MRI done the following day, which confirmed a fistula had developed. Moreover, it is one that cuts across too many muscles to operate directly, and so the insertion of a seton would be necessary. He estimates the seton would need to stay in place for between 12-18 months.
We are not in the best financial situation, so the cost of the procedure privately would be hard to swallow, but I genuinely have no idea how easy it will be to get in front of an NHS surgeon in the near future either.
I finished the 2 week course of antibiotics given by the surgeons a couple of days ago and broadly feel alright for now (though still getting bouts of diarrhea most days that I fear may cause a reinfection again).
I'm feeling a bit lost and disorientated and could do with any informed advice on the matter possible.
Any NHS staff on here that may be well placed to advise if now that I have a confirmed diagnosis and an MRI that could be shared if the NHS might take me back into its hands just for the operation?
Thanks in advance for any thoughts or advice.
