    I think it's time

    I always wondered when it would be time to stop doing cycles? Brief History: I have been on HRT for 8 years and have done maybe 2 cycles a year for the past 6 years (all tren except two deca ).

    Well I think it's time to stop cycling. Last spring my tren cycle went bad and I ended up in the hospital having a difficult time breathing. So I waited and about 7.5 weeks ago started a deca (300mg a week) winny (50mg daily) cycle. Six weeks in and I had to abort. I was feeling like shit, BP off the chart (167/76 after a workout), fatigued and again breathing issues. I have only been off cycle and back to normal HRT (test cyp 70mg E3.5days) for 9 days and I am starting to feel better. Not sure what is causing the issues with fatigue and breathing, I did give a pint of blood as scheduled in the middle of it and that's when I started feeling worse.
    Right now I am bigger than ever before, but bodyfat is to high (maybe water weight)? I guess I am going to have to dig deep and get motivated to do it the hard way, proper diet and workouts. I really do need to go lighter because my joints are hurting pretty bad too. I will be 59 in July, "see what you young 40's guys have to look forward to!!! "

    breathing issues are simply from volumization of blood (not high hemo or rbc) and water retention.. very common. happens to most guys and your probably just a bit prone to it cause maybe you naturally carry a bit more water retention and blood volume anyhow.

    try cycling with non volumizing compounds . Anavar or Primo for example.. you'll likely feel just fine.. just add 500mg of primo to your TRT. you probably won't feel any negative effects . and then stay away from volumizing drugs like Deca , Dbol , Adrol, Tren , EQ etc.

    Take some time and evaluate. Make sure your health is in order via bloodwork. Then, add in compounds like GH advised.

    And you look great!

    Thanks guys! Been 3 weeks feeling better, but not 100%. Gonna give it another week or so for everything to clear and see how I feel. Then get labs done.

    Ya right Charger! I think you are a bit bigger than I am and WAY leaner! I have always been impressed by your drive and motivation.

    This gives us young bucks hope. You’re carrying some serious mass there, im sure breathing would be difficult for anyone not just you. Size is Size, whether muscle or fat, albeit I actually think it takes more heart work and lung work to power us beasts than the obese people. Curious to see how your cholesterol levels look after 6 years of tren , if you dont mind post up your bw.

    I had labs done in September. I will scan them and upload tomorrow if I remember. High but not off the chart to much. I want to say total was 219???
    EDIT: Here are my last lab results. Keep in mind that I only did two cycles a year with plenty of break in between and stayed on HRT at 140mg a week. My first 5 years I only did low dose 200-300mg a week tren . Never went crazy until last spring (long story) but was up near 500mg a week (if memory serves me right).

    Little high but not something id be super worried about, interesting thanks for posting. I have never got mine done while on a tren cycle i also keep mine fairly low 150-250 mg a week and usually only run anywhere between 4-5 week short bursts.

    Sometimes less is better! I messed up last time I did tren . I feel my first vial was way under dosed and I kept increasing because I just wasn't seeing any change in strength, dryness, fullness etc .... Then when I switched to the next vial I stayed at the high dose. I think it was 400 or 450 a week, which is high for me. Well that vial was not under dosed and it was way to much for me.
