I'm still out here.
But it seems it's not up to my body; we're just waiting for hubby's body to respond to the drugs for the prolactinoma we finally discovered. With a testosterone level of 35 (test goes down as prolactin goes up), it's likely not going to happen soon (though his SA showed some viable little dudes, which made his endo nearly faint, LOL).
It's funny that we (hubby and I) are so anti-medical-assistance, but we do need the assistance to get hubby's hormones back to normal. Odd. Then again, we are definitely the bosses of the endocrinologist; he wouldn't have discovered this problem if we hadn't FORCED him to test for hormones. Hubby has been asking MDs and NDs to test his hormone levels for 3 years, and they all refused (b/c I'm 2.5 years older so it's the old wife's "fault" according to them, without ever meeting me) until this guy. Thank goodness he did it!
Hopefully it will get worked out soon!!
It is a strange feeling relying on the medical community when you aren't accustomed to it, I know what you mean. I'm glad you still have some control over your care, it is so important to be listened to!
