Hi there
I am a 74 year old man, with a child of 8, when Ryan was two, and looking after him on my own, I was feeling tired, and had that could not be bothered feeling, although not a problem at the time I had no sex drive, I put this all down to me age, my GP at the time done some blood and prostate tests, He said I had something called andropause, he prescribed Nebido tostestorone injections, Since having these injections I have felt on top of the world, my blood pressure which was high, and my cholestoral, have came down to normal, I have also been able to lose tummy bloating. my problem is my new GP has been asking me if I wanted to come off it voluntarily, he says some people imagine things are doing them good, I got quite short with her and she left it at that, now I have this worry in my mind , she may take me off it, I have my blood and prostate checked regularly and all is ok, the nurse hinted unofficialy it may be down to cost, have you any thoughts on the matter
