Gynecomestia Part II: For Better or Worse Decision Made: Nothing Ventured Nothing Gained

Rather than add to the increasingly complex array of supplements and medications I take on a daily basis, my layman's inclination was to undergo radiation therapy. In the absence of compelling evidence to do so, however, I have decided to accept Dr. Myers' recommendation.
The following recent e-mail exchange provides additional perspective:
Patient
Assuming they are not equal, which of the two treatment options:  (1) radiation or (2) the combined medications of Arimidex and Caberloline iwould be more effective in
:--.Reducing breast size and sensitivity
--Arresting further development
Dr. Myers
"2 is safer and nearly as effective"
Patient
My decision has been far more difficult than I imagined. Rather than agonize any further, I intend to abide by your knowledge, judgment and expertize. If you would initiate a prescription  for Cabergloline and Arimidex I will get started ASAP.
For the record...I am concerned about two precautions listed for Cabergloline,  namely use with alcohol and use with blood pressure medication. As you may recall I typically consume one or two beers  most evenings, and I take Losartan on a daily basis.
 Dr. Myers
"JUST TO BE VERY CAUTIOUS. START WITH ONE CABERGOLINE A WEEK. AFTER ONE MONTH GO TO MONDAY THURSDAY FOR ONE MONTH. THEN MONDAY WEDNESDAY FRIDAY."

As indicated in the title of this entry: "Decision Made..."  Stay tuned.

HI Don, I trust all goes well with your treatment choice and extend my best wishes that your journey is all you desire. I decided a while back to no longer post on YANA. Today I also found out that I have been banned anyway, nit of anticlimax really LOL. Sadly I think YANA would have been better served to shut up shop with Terry's passing. Anyway all ancient history now. I am p-retty much on the way out myself but I have had a good innings with no regrets. So I bit adieu Don and that you for the many mutually beneficial exchanges that we have had over the years.

best wishes
John Bonneville

John:
YANA is certainly not what it once was and never will be again.
You helped make it valuable (and super interesting on occasion).
I certainly do not want to lose you as someone to communicate with from time to time.
If you agree to make yourself available to me on this forum or by email, I promise not to over do it. Let me know. My address is donandmar@yahoo.com/
