About 10 years ago Billy noticed a loss of energy and was having sexual problems. When he learned that his pituitary gland had stopped sending signals to his body to make testosterone he opted to receive testosterone injections. Billy’s doctor made it clear to him the risks of doing so, namely, an increased risk of prostate cancer.

Billy went forward with the injections and initially felt great. But half a year later, his doctor found cancer in his prostate. He scheduled his surgery and upon reading the contract which noted there was a chance of death, Billy felt like he was “hit over the head with a ton of bricks.” Billy left notes to his friends and family telling them he loved them all, in case anything happened during surgery.
