I just want to know what's the difference between hCG and TRT. Because the former is very rare and difficult to obtain and the other is easier but potentially more dangerous for cardiac issues.

In addition to that, what else did it do besides cranking up T?

I suspect the mechanism of POIS lies somewhere in their. For example there are many people who suffer from low testosterone but they don't have POIS. So it must be that in the mechanism of testosterone regeneration POIS occurs. Maybe androgen receptors in the brain or the testies.

I just took a turn with an endocrinologist, I will present my case with documents taken from poiscenter. I hope to get a successful response and possible treatment. I'm sure he'll send me studies and so on.

TRT...is...potentially more dangerous for cardiac issues.
Depressing! I had 5-way bypass, open heart surgery...but I won’t blame you for ruining my Thanksgiving, my previous doctor agrees with you. No, that’s not why I fired him ;D

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

You would love my Egyptian doctor he doesn't seem to think that TRT is bad for you ;D

What kind of cardiac symptom(s) led up to this surgery?

I'm asking this because I developed cardiac issues over the years like arrythmia, POIS is making this worse.

Muon, I wouldn’t be surprised if years of POIS agony drove me to the ER (actually my wife drove me
:) )

I also suspect entrepreneurial-business pressure + poor diet + alcohol. Plus my father died of BP complications, so much of my condition I suspect is hereditary. Thankfully, my BP meds work wonderfully, even on this caffeine-addicted body of mine :)

''Treatment was initiated with hCG 1500IU injected subcutaneously three times per week. At six-week follow-up his symptoms had resolved completely, and he had discontinued use of alprazolam. He ejaculated more frequently, and experienced no weakness, anxiety, brain fog, or malaise afterwards. He noted improved mood, overall energy, and libido. Blood tests showed robust levels of total testosterone at 952 ng/dl and free T (direct) at 2.8 ng/dl. LH and FSH were below threshold limits. He reported this was the first time since he was 16y that he could experience orgasm without negative physical or emotional consequences afterwards. At six months of follow-up he continued hCG treatment, was happy, and masturbated several times per month. He still described mild POIS symptoms immediately following orgasm, but these resolved within 12 h and were not bothersome. Importantly, he no longer experienced dread with anticipated sexual activity.''

At six-week follow up his symptoms had resolved completely.
At six months of follow up he described mild POIS symptoms.

Did he stop doing hCG injections after the six-week follow up and continued after the 6-month follow up or did he use it all the time during these 6 months?

Muon communicate with me. I was consulting with an endocrinologist and he told me that hcg medication is very expensive and is only prescribed on the basis of hypogonadism or infertility problems. In my case the testorene is within the normal ranges. Somewhat low, but normal. I am 382 ng / dl. It does not justify the treatment.
Will there be a way to go to the research team nord or pois to perform tests ?.
Next week I have another shift with an endocrinol, hopefully it will be positive to give me the medication and be able to experiment with me.

We have a degree of hope. I will try by all means to apply the treatment, under medical prescription. In Argentina the treatment is very expensive. That is why it is very difficult to access it. I will keep you informed about everything.
