testosterone and high hemoglobin
Jan 31, 2011

My husband was diagnosed with testicular cancer 4 years ago, he had one testicle removed. About 1 year ago he started a testosterone regimen, starting with gels and now injections. He has his levels checked every three months all fine until yesterday. The Dr. called and told him to stop the injections and begin taking an asprin everyday. His hemoglobin levels were high @ 18.5. My concern is if he stops the testosterone he will go back into the low motivation and depression he was in before he started the injections but I am also concerned about his thick blood. Should I be concerned?? Thanks

This is an HIV/AIDS information Web site. You and your husband should discuss this problem with your husband's physician.
