  • Some help needed

    I had an orchidectomy in nov06 due to stage 1 seminoma.

    Have had some symptoms of low trstosterone for a while. Had two tests recently - 1 in the afernnon and one in the morning (9am test). These tests show testosterone and LH in the normal range but FSH is raised. The endocronologist states that this is not significant but Im not sure.

    The two tests show the following levels:

    1. Testosterone - 13.3NM/L, LH 5.7IU/L, FSH 13.5IU/L
    2. Testosterone - 19.2NM/L, LH 4.2IU/L FSH 15.4IU/L

    Any help, suggestions or advice greatly recieved

    Those levels look almost identical to mine before my I/O and I was suffering some minor problems, except FSH wasnt that high, FSH that high means your testicle is struggling, if you feel you are having symptoms then IMO should warrant treatment, but thats upto you.
