I had a fall in a boat problems with lower back hip leg etc.
Doctor: Doctor John MD, Board Certified MD replied 8 months ago

Ok. thank you for that additional information.

typically steroid supplements (testosterone) is used in patients that are found to be low on a blood test.
You can see your doctor and describe your symptoms and see if they feel it may be due to low testosterone.

If they do find that you have low testosterone and they recommend testosterone replacement, you can do that with either a daily testosterone cream or a injection every two weeks.

Does that help answer your question?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
