    :noes:



    So anyways we go over my history, how i got teh puffy nips when i was 12/hittin puberty and they just never went away.

    He examined em (pinching/squeezing) jk :fawk: but yeah he took a look and told me i have 3 options

    1. Dont do anything/leave them

    2. Surgery - Most insurance doesnt cover it because its considered cosmetic (they only cover it in extreme cases i guess) and it would end up being $2,500-3,000 :noes:

    3. Pills/Hormone Therapy - He said theyre used to treat/prevent breast cancer I guess and it blocks the hormones. I can't really explain but anyways he said it was 85% effective for things like this and I'll be on it for 12 weeks (only side effect is possible blood clots in your leg and its happened to people who've been on it for extended periods of time (year+)) It was a HELL of a lot cheaper than insurance

    I know some people were wondering so I'll let you guys know how it goes and I'm going to take progress pics..

    Here's an explanation of the drug of webmd

    I was always under the impression that Nolva doesn't really help with pre-existing gyno. Good luck though.

    I thought Tamoxifen was strictly for prevention, not cure...

    I've heard of people getting it covered by medical by saying it is causing them pain, therefore making it non-cosmetic. If the tissue growth is already developed I really don't see tamox doing much, other then preventing more growth. I know of people who have tried attacking gyno with nolva,letro,aromasin and a ton of other obscure chemicals without success. If your going to get it done I'd shop around for a doctor first, I know you can get it done up here in Canada for like 1k-1500 CDN, its a very simple, in and out procedure.

    because usually the problem arises later on in the day, I generally take my pics in the morning... I ran 20mg of nolva every day for a 2 months to see if anything took place, nothing happened. Actually upped it to 40mg for a couple weeks, but no changes took place. I realize it's a lot of money, but surgery is permanent and safer. If you got halfway decent credit, pull out a loan from the bank. I am getting mine done after my schooling is paid for, but I also have a very high paying job so money ain't a big deal anymore

    From my understanding gyno procedures are now covered by insurance because it leads to depression and other bullshit along those lines.. but I don't think puffy nipples are exactly the same thing - I think it fits more along the line of a liposuction of the chest, because it's just a stubourn fat

    mine isn't gyno (from my knowledge), is that what the doctor told you? I have no hard tissue, etc. School is at night, I work full time during the day and get paid by what I do. So I can bust my ass for 8 hours and pull in $300 a day. I beleive mine is triggered more by body heat

    I had gyno surgery when I was young because even though I was a skinny bastard I still had the bitch tits. Apparently this was more of a genetic condition because another member of my family did the same thing.

    I'm wondering now if its even possible for me to get gyno from juice after that.

    most surgeons offer a guarantee that it won't come back, and if it does the operation is free of charge

    look at some of the articles ive posted above

    theres two "types" of gyno..fatty and one with a lump

    yours sounded like fatty and in that test/experiment it was less effective

    mine is the lumpy type :o

    eh? I put shingles on roofs, and am paid by the square aka 3 bundles of shingles. 300/day would be considered a good day, usually take home around 1k a week
