hello I had varicocele surgery,

One week ago I did blood test:

FT4: 1,38 NG/DL (0,7-1,48)

FT3: 3,31 PG/ML (1,71 - 3,71)-------> gain from 2,86 pg/mL before surgery, I have lot more energy then before varicocelotomy, I feel just better

TSH: 0,47 (0,35-4,94)

ESTRADIOL 32 PG/ML [7,63-42,60] -----> E2 drops from 41, I can surerely feel it I am much less iritable person, bitch mode almost off.

Testosterone: 3,51 ng/ml [2,8-8] ------> this is what is worring me. It almost didn't change. I can feel that I am more sexually sensitive, but I think it's due to lower e2. I have 2-3 mornig erections during week after surgery, before I had 2 during 2 or 3 weeks.

LH: 2,41 mIU/ml [1,7- 8,3]

FSH: 1,3 mIU/ml [1-14]

My question is, if estradiol is made from testosterone during the way of aromatization, why after surgery estradiol level drops and level of testosterone stay on low level ? ? ?

Hard to say what is behind E2 changes. Might be blood flow related. As swelling resolves, slowly, blood flow may improve more.

If your HPTA is functional, but "set point" is low, you might shift that by taking 0.5mg/week anastrozole in divided doses.

Increase "330 iu Liquidex (1 mg/ml) EOD" by a factor of 32/22, or a 50% increase --> 480iu, which is 30% more than nominal VS your 130mg T/week dose.

Your E2 status may be in a state of change and anastrozole dose may require more tuning. If E2 is a bit low for a while, assuming that you feel OK, this might assist changes in your HPTA.

fT3 is good. Are body temps OK? If not, rT3 a possible problem. Make sure that you are getting selenium and ferritin is good; fT4-->fT3 might be inhibited or some end product is been bleed off as rT3.

Your post and the above should be in your case thread, not this one.

KSman if you've got time I've added a TPO result to my threat. It seems like a negative result however maybe some ammunition to make a case for treatment?

The book idea stopped in 2010 with my surgical accident and massive infection, my energy levels have never been the same.
