my pulmonologist suggested I may benefit from testosterone treatments since it helps build muscle. Told me to clear with urologist first since it can enlarge prostate
Urologist not responded to my question, has anyone had this suggested to them? Seems to make sense since stronger muscles do not demand as much O2.

If you're already working out and not having much luck, maybe this is worth a try, but if not I think I'd try the gym first.

Exercise not only lets me live, it enables me to have a life.

After I TXd I complained for months about lack of energy, so Clinic did a testosterone test and I was real low. I was put on patches for about 6months, I took a long time to build up to where I could tell a difference but it did help my energy level. I think you should be tested before going on a treatment.

The Journey Continues.
