Welcome to XXXXXXX and thanks for your query. Answers to your question are

1.     B complex changes urine color to yellow. He might have meant that because during cystoscopy we look at the urine jet coming out of the ureteric orifice into the bladder. This is absolutely normal and there is nothing to worry.
2.     Serum testosterone need to be checked and testosterone may have to be replaced if levels are low. This may be in the form of gel, tablets or injections.
3.     Some blood and pain is possible and should have settled by now.

Kindly speak to your doctor during your next appointment about these things and these are not urgent issues. An elective appointment may be taken.
Hope this helps. Kindly let me know if you have further doubts,

Welcome back.
I had a close look at the reports.
Since your PSA is normal and serum testosterone is low, and if your doc feels that the risk benefit ratio of testosterone replacement is favorable for you, you may go ahead with the injections. You may also speak to him on the other modes i have mentioned like gel and tablet forms.
Hope this helps. Kindly revert back for doubts if any...
wishing you good health

Thanks, as you said mentioning Testosterone Gel and tablets, does these Gel has same side effects of injections or these don't have.
Do you have noticed that DHEAS is low in tests Nov,14.2012 and Testosterone goes some normal range on this date ,low DHEAS may be due to dysfunction of Adrenal glands and Pituitary or hypopituitarism , which may be of Adrenal cortex under function can be further related to XXXXXXX Desease, as far pain concerned on elbows it is like pin pointing feeling some thing is boiling and melting down in/around bone .
actually health caremagic is not accepting reports while uploading as such these will be sent in next few days.
Do clarify these as mentioned above.

Welcome back.
At your age, if androgen replacement is considered necessary by your clinician, testosterone is the best one.
Benefits are more than Side effects in any form and hence, if serum PSA is normal, testosterone can be safely given.
Addisons's disease is more complex with changes in other hormone levels as well and is better dealt with by the endocrinologist.
I am not the right person to comment on the elbow pain. If persistent, pls check with your orthopedician.

Best regards

I was recently told I have empty sella found on a MRI. Also found low testosterone. I feel very fatiuged and can't handle stress very well. This has been going on for 3 to 5 years. Could I have a pituitary problem affecting other hormones such as cortisol. Thanks Jim C.

I was diagnosed with hypopituitarism including central insipidus diabetes, growth hormone deficiency, low testosterone , septo optic dysplasia.and legal blindness and also delayed puberty. My pituitary gland with mri showed to be very tiny. I dont know if this is a related issue or not but I've always had a very poor sense of smell, some things i cant smell at all some i cant distinguish, so my question is is this related to the pituitary condition or is it something else, in either case what could it be.

So here's the question, I have been fatigued for over 2 yrs. My son was born with panhypopituitarism. @ 6 wks old he went into adrenal shock/crisis. Since that day, I have walked on eggshells, the fatigue stared 6 months after he was born. I also have other symptoms, night sweats, confusion, muscle weakness, cold hand & feet, inability to focus, weight gain, low blood pressure, red dots on my skin (like tiny spots of blood) frequent skin infections, that heal SLOWLY, breast lactating, abdominal discomfort & constipation. All of which I NEVER had before, but my doctor says I am just overwhelmed/depressed. Is he right?
