How soon after anterior hip replacement can I begin my testosterone injections into my thigh? Is there any risk, if so, what?
Blood clots: Whenever I see a young man on testosterone, my first question is why? Hopefully you have been diagnosed by an endocrinologist as truly needing to be on the medication.

This can cause more side effects like increased blood counts, potential for blood clots. Topical gels are preferred. ...Read more

If you losinopril causes the dry cough will all ACE have same effect? Also CCB amlopidine caused leg swelling will the other CCB do same?
Not neccessarily: Sometimes a switch from one ACE-INHIBITOR to another can stp the cough. If not switching to an Angiotensin Receptor Blocker will very likely stop the cough. All CCBlockers can cause leg swelling. Lowering the dose will decrease the swelling. In any given person one CCB may cause less swelling than the other, while still being effective. ...Read more
Now I've started taking Diltiazem Tildiem again, how long will it take for the ankle/leg swelling to go? Anything I can do to stop it/help it?
Again?: You say "again". Did you take it before. Why was it stopped? Did it help the swelling before (the tildiem (HCTZ) is a mild diuretic.)

Leg swelling is not a common presentation of pericarditis, but could potentially be a feature of heart failure. ...Read more
