From this study (1 year ago):
I have had testosterone replacement therapy for about ten years, about six of which I have noticed fluid retention. First the fluid retention was my posterior head, which I noticed at night from the straps of my Bipap machine, which I also have needed for the last six or seven years. I now have +3 edema in my legs after 12 hour work days at my hospital, which resolves to a +1 edema overnight. I have had a substantial weight gain resistant to dieting for the last 4 or so years of about 20 pounds. I sometimes gain/lose up to 5-6 pounds in just a day or two, and try to restrict fluids to about 1200cc daily with no concentration in urine. I am a critical care RN
