TRT and PSA...so I've been on trt for 5 years and after I went for a normal checkup every 6 months my PSA went from less than 1 to 7.8...so my primary care physician sent me to urologist for high PSA..he gave me a DRE and a urine test which both came back negative....he gave me antibiotics and I went back 2 months later and my PSA dropped to 2.3 which they were happy about and back to somewhat normal. When they found out my PSA had spiked my PCP stopped my TRT cold..so I go back to the urologist and they tell me they will send in my script to start my TRT (which I thought was weird because my PCP is who usually does that) again because my PSA dropped to normal.....so now the urologist tells me i have to come back in 3 months to be tested for PSA and Test CBC because that is their protocol if I want to stay on TRT....my PCP and the urologist want to do the exact same bloodwork 1 month apart! 1st off..I was on TRT before I even went to this urologist and I could care less if I ever seen them again...and that's what i told them. Why do they think they have a say with my TRT? Can they control what my PCP gives me? I told them I dont want to come back to them because it's pointless for both to do the same exact bloodwork. This is why we pay so much for insurance. And they charged me and extra long dr visit because it was 16 mins long 1 minute over the 15 minute limit...wtf. $200 more to my insurance because of this. Since my PSA was high for prostatitis do they over rule my PCP now? Thanks yall!
