    I am a 62 year old guy that has been training in some manner since 1967. Worked through all kinds of injuries from football, running, weights and martial arts, all things I have done consistently during stages of my life. Foot and knee surgeries, hip replacement and rotator cuff surgeries are all on the resume.

    Last year I had rotator cuff surgery. six weeks of no upper body exercise and I lost so much I looked like a skeleton. At my age I thought I'd never get it back. After age 45 I was on a holding pattern as far as muscle mass was concerned. After 60 it seemed no matter what I did I was losing it, and the loss of muscle from the shoulder surgery was frightening.

    I have always prided myself on my ability to rehab from these surgeries. After my physical last year, I convinced my PCP to refer me to a specialist. My testosterone was "in range" at 372. Fortunately, my PCP didn't know too much about what was normal for a guy in his 60's and I talked him into a referral to a clinic in Boston that is well renowned for TRT replacement. Been on it since June 1, 2016 and I can't believe the positive changes.

    At 62, I look and feel better than I have since my late 30's. I've always worked hard when I train, but now I am getting visible results.It's a good feeling to be able to work without your shirt on and not feel like Mack, the skinny guy on the beach in the Charles Atlas commercial. Energy is up, libido like when I got married (wife likes that most of the time,,,) recover from work faster, clearer thinking. I believe all guys my age could benefit from TRT, especially those who still work out. Why wouldn't you? The latest research shows that, with proper medical monitoring, the sides are very minimal to nonexistent.Certainly the side effects of giving up to aging are far worse.

    Hope to learn as much as I can here.

    Mountain Man - do you mind sharing your current TRT protocol?

    100 mg per week of testosterone cypionate, that's all. I'm a patient at Dr. Abraham Morganthaler's clinic in Boston. That's the starting protocol. No hCG, only if I need it down the road. I understand that this protocol was different than most other clinics, but this is working great for me. I also work out, hard, three or four days a week with bands , and sprints on an air bike on the off days.
