What's the process for trt

Hi guys,
I was referred to an endo last year and now have an appointment with him in March. Took 7 months to get an appointment which is really poor. Anyway I plan on getting some bloodwork done prior to the endo appointment. I've had tests before which shows low test so I'm pretty sure the next one will be the same. Plus I have all the symptoms of low test.

If the test is in the region for trt how soon will the endo start me on gels? What I'm worried about is I have the appointment in March and then he says come back and see me and that takes potentially another 7 months.

Anyone who's been through the process please advice. Thanks

    Your endo will most likely want bloods taking, why would you plan on getting blood work prior to seeing him?
    Are you having private consultations and bloods etc?
    From experience it can take a while to initially see the endo but they seem to get the process of trt underway (if needed) fairly quickly once you've seen them.

    The reason I want bloods done before is so I have them ready for him. Rather than him send me away to have them done which would long the process. Is it possible to get an answer there and then about starting trt so long as he has the blood results

    Once they had reviewed my bloods and I think they wanted more than one set to establish some average readings then it was immediate that I started treatment.
    Can only speak from my experience others may be different.
