Going about starting legit trt (again)

Hello all, I'm wanting to get on legit hrt. Here's my back story.
12 years ago I was put on Androgel for trt as my test levels were in the 300's and my doctor wouldn't switch to injects. I started using a online trt place with 200mg cyp a week. Then started cycling and cycled straight for 10 years. I've been off everything for over a year now and last test had me at mid 300's on testosterone! (About the same as 12 years ago and after cycling for 10 years) . I'm wanting to get on legit local trt and am curious about any advice. I'm thinking of hitting up low dose Tne for a few weeks to guarantee low enough levels for trt as 300's don't cut it for me and want to make sure there's no debate on whether I need it:
-do you think the Tne would be a good idea and how long before the test should I stop, or would 300's test level get me scripted?
-Any general advice on how you would go about things?

I should add. I started to go about legit trt about a year ago with the only endo in town. She said I didn't look like I needed it, tested me and said at my age (40) that 300's were fine. There is a new endo in town and a urologist that is known to trt so I'm going to try one of them out. My original doctor was easy to work with and suggested it to me without my asking but I've moved to another state since then.

If you were in the 300's while on then I'm pretty sure you're lower than that now unless you had a great pct and recovery. I would just go get tested, tell him you're tired all the time and have a low sex drive. That's want I said when I wanted a script and I was just under 300. Also if they ever tell you that you can't inject tell them you're around and holding a baby a lot; your kid, niece, nephew, whatever so you don't want to risk transferring the gel and that the patches irritate your skin.

Good tips on getting the injects.
I've been off of everything for about 18 months and concerned that I'll be turned away with a natural test on the 300's but am not happy with my test levels as low as they are- I feel like it's almost 0 even though I'm on the lowest side of normal, sure doesn't feel normal.

? I'm not sure what you are saying?

That's lower than the average for a 100 year old male. The ranges are normally 300-1050 ng/ml and is dependant on age, lab, and doctor.

I've used PrivateMD to get my levels checked. It's pretty reasonable. Also years ago when I still use to recover into the 500s I used 10 mg/d of anavar for a few weeks and then dropped it for 5 days before testing. I tested in the 260s so it basically cut my level in 1/2. I took the var in the morning. When I was looking for a local TRT doc I called the local compounding pharma and asked who scripts test because I was looking for a doc and have low T and am from out of state moving in. They gave me a few names and have been with my doc for about 6 years now.
