Sudden stop of testosterone therapy

Patient

Q: I have been on testosterone therapy for the last 20 weeks (300 mg Test Cyp/week). I have had a RS orchiectomy and a LS torsion. LS is small and soft and my T levels tested at 330 in Feb. '15. I saw a urologist three weeks ago and he did a blood test only a few days after stopping and levels came back >1500. How long will it take until my levels drop below normal range again? Getting depressed, been 3 weeks since last injection.

Symptoms:  Depression, ED, headaches
