    Typically how soon if ever after having one testicle removed do hormones return to normal?

      Yeah that's the reason why he feels its his hormones.. he hasn't gotten much hair growth at all since the surgery.. he used to have a nice full beard and now its just stray patchy hairs. Perhaps he does not have enough testosterone at this current time. Perhaps you are right that the other testicle is not pulling its weight. It was a lot smaller then the one removed. Does size even have anything to do with potency? He has a appointment with his urologist at the end of next month and I really hope they check his levels. If they seem to think he needs the hormones and he does in fact start treatments how soon after if ever will results effect his demeanor typically? Currently I am doing say as say Crash, giving him room and still showing him love and plenty of it. It is discouraging at times though because he is a stubborn one but I plan on trying my best to stay strong for him. Thank you all for your insightful answers even if educating myself won't change his situation it sure does help me keep it together if I have an idea of what exactly may be going on in his head.

      Staying strong and supportive is exactly what you should do. He has a tough road ahead of him but as myself, Crash and Doug can testify, he'll be ok.

      I'm sorry to hear about your boyfriend. Being a survivor is very hard and causes you to evaluate things in your life. Sadly sometimes survivors push their loved ones away either because they do not want to burden them. Sometimes they have an epiphany and don't want the life they have any longer. It's horrible that you feel abandoned and that he abandoned his child, no man shoud do that. I hope things get better for you, have you tried cancer support groups?
