Another point I’d like to make for people worried about a link between high testosterone and prostate cancer is that it just doesn’t make sense. Prostate cancer becomes more prevalent in men as they age, and that’s also when their testosterone levels decline. We almost never see it in men in their peak testosterone years, in their 20s for instance. We know from autopsy studies that 8% of men in their 20s already have tiny prostate cancers, so if testosterone really made prostate cancer grow so rapidly — we used to talk about it like it was pouring gasoline on a fire — we should see some appreciable rate of prostate cancer in men in their 20s. We don’t. So, I’m no longer worried that giving testosterone to men will make their hidden cancer grow, because I’m convinced that it doesn’t happen.
I cannot express my heartbreak for you and the loss of your precious daughter. I have 2 and a granddaughter. They are my life as well as my wife. I can’t help but feel a negligence on the part of the medical staff, in my opinion. Your daughter was off the opiates for awhile making her ‘opiate naive’. That amount of medication,dosage,etc. would definitely kill someone especially if there’s no home are staff or med staff around to monitor the situation.
Please accept my deepest and sincerest of sympathies and if you don’t mind, I’ll keep you in my prayers.
