I want to start a testosterone replacement therapy?

I want to start a testosterone replacement therapy. My main concern is the impact to my kidneys.
One year ago I was found with a cancer in one of my kidneys. I underwent a partial nephrectomy which succeeded. Now, I have 1 whole kidney and 0.6 of the other. They work properly and I do not have any sign of cancer (whereas I will be doing exams every 6 months for the next 3 years).
I have to add the whole kidney has 2-3 cysts, but apart from that my kidneys work completely properly.
My questions are: Is the use of testosterone toxic for kidneys? Does my condition (apart for the extra burden due to the deficit in volume of kidneys) entail higher risk? Would you suggest the use of testosterone in such a case?

It started 4 days ago with the headache, slight heartache, and slight kidney ache?

It started 4 days ago with the headache, slight heartache, and slight kidney ache. I was shivering, and the body temperature went up to 38.4C. Next day the temperature was about 37.8C, so I went to the doctor. He got me checked but found nothing. Since I had to travel abroad, he prescribed Levofloxacin 500 mg. Today, 2 days after I started taking antibiotic, my body temperature went up to 38.4C again. I am afraid it’s a virus, and antibiotic only makes it worse. May I stop taking it?

My mother suffers from Polimyalgia Rheumatica, Osteoporosis, Hypertension and a heart murmur?

I am a caregiver to my 85 year old mother who suffers from Polimyalgia Rheumatica, Osteoporosis, Hypertension and a heart murmur. My question is dealing with her blood pressure. She is taking all the medications prescribed (Amlodipine, Losartan, Hydralazine, Isosorbide) routinely throughout the day and her pressure seems to be okay. In the evening though she starts to get this feeling that she has to vomit and she feels terrible. I took her blood pressure during this time and it was 188/92. She doesn’t eat anything at this time of night and I monitor/restrict any sodium intake throughout the day. Is there something that could be causing this that I could try at my end to resolve these “episodes”? Thank you in advance for your reply. Sincerely, (—)

I have mostly on the right side pelvic pain though sometimes I feel it on the left?

Hello,

I have mostly on the right side pelvic pain though sometimes I feel it on the left. This pain started since I put in Mirena IUD( about 1 year ago) and comes and goes on and off. For few days i have been feeling also burning and tingling pain in lower part of the stomach ( both sides). I have recently ( 1 month ago) had pervic MRI that showed herniated disk at L4/L5 ( lowest part). Recently I have also experienced constipation problems and saw gastroenterologist for it who did segmentation ( she saw 25cm of my colon but said it looked normal). I also had endoscopy done about 6 month ago and was diagnosed with stomach hernia and acid problem for which I am taking anti-acid medication. I also been experience need to urinate urges but have been diagnosed with over active bladder few years back so its ongoing problem that comes and goes. What bothers me the most now is burning sensation in my lower part of the stomach. Can you please tell me what can it be.

After the colonoscopy, I was assured that although it needs to be done again, they couldn’t see anything?

Hi,

My sister (42) was diagnosed with rectal cancer.

I also had seen maroon red blood in the bowl, and my blood test result came back saying I have anaemia which later was said to be due to my thalassemia trait.

I had a colonoscopy done in October, and the scope reached to the ilium. However, I still had hard stool on the left, right and sigmoid colon, so I was asked to do it again.

I waited for the appointment which finally arrived with two days notice the day I was going holiday which had to be cancelled. I just received my next appointment in two weeks time.

After the colonoscopy, I was assured that although it needs to be done again, they couldn’t see anything.

1. I wanted to ask if thalassemia can be mistaken for iron deficiency anaemia which is one of the signs of colon cancer
2. I understand you can’t say for sure, but how likely is it that someone can miss cancer due to the hard stool as it would be raised? Also, it entered all the way going past the transverse colon.

Please answer in many details as I’m really worried. Are there any other tests I could do faster or to avoid another colonoscopy?

Thank you in advance

I have had an infection in my finger for About 8 days?

Hi, I have had an infection in my finger for About 8 days. I believe that it is paronychia. A few days ago I noticed severe pain in my left underarm, and the following day I began to have flu like symptoms. I have full body aches, fever, and the pain with the finger, as well as swelling. Not really sure if this is something that I can treat at home , or if I need to seek my doctor. Thank you so much .

Suspicious lumps and bumps, genital warts?

suspicious lumps and bumps on pubic area, first appeared after i had shaved, but i fear they’ve spread due to shaving which has opened the sores, any idea what they could be? thought they were ingrown hairs at first but now suspicious they’re genital warts, not in any pain etc, just not very nice to look at.

I started with a late period. I also started to have nausea, minor headaches, and fatigue

age: 24, height: 5’5″, weight: 128, gender: Female, meds: N/A, medical issues: none, duration: 6 weeks, hormonal imbalance?

So it the strangeness started with a late period. I also started to have nausea, minor headaches, and fatigue. Six days later I get my period although it’s shorter and lighter. The nausea, headache, and fatigue continued. A month passes and over that time I also started to get this pressure/heavy kind of feeling in my uterus, like it was expanding. I’m starting to get a little freaked out because I’ve been feeling strange for a while with little change. I didn’t think it was pregnancy because one unfortunate instance occured a day or two after what I calculated to be when I would have ovulated (although I’d been irregular the 3 months prior). I finally decided to get a $1 test just to make sure and it came out negative. I’m feeling relieved but I still felt strange, something was still wrong.

Three days later I start my period, but it’s very strange. Day 1 was pretty normal maybe heavier than normal but in late morning of day 2 I started passing clumps (not like the ones I would normally get at the end of my period, they were larger and looked a little different, like tissue). The first two were pretty normal but they kept coming getting larger and more frequent. Towards the end I had to go to the bathroom every 20 minutes or so to pass 7 cm clumps. There were about 7 clumps in total 4 of them were large, 3 of them were very large about 3″ clumps. I was also cramping very bad. I normally only cramp the first day and if it’s bad enough I’ll take some medicine and I’m usually fine after that. Not the case, even after taking medicine it was still very painful. The clots stopped after 5hrs, I felt completely drained emotionally and physically (my uterus felt bare/empty). My period continued for 3 more days. The other symptoms I felt over the month subsided after that. What was wrong with me?
