Surgery before POIS
« on: August 14, 2018, 09:19:23 AM »
After watching Netflix's fascinating "bleeding edge" documentary, I began to wonder if my POIS could have anything to do with my hernia surgery I had as a child, so I have made this poll to see if others had surgery prior to experiencing POIS.
Symptoms last 6-7 days. Onset of muscle weakness after 30 seconds. Symptoms include: brain fog, fatigue, depression, pale skin/dark circles under eyes,  digestive problems, difficulty taking a full breath, irritability. NONE of these are present out of POIS.

Hernia surgery as a child.
10 years of significant POIS-reduction, treatment consisting of daily (365 days/year) testosterone patches.

TRT must be checked out carefully with your doctor due to fertility, cardiac and other risks.

40+ years of severe 4-days-POIS, married, raised a family, started/ran a business
