Quiting testerone cold turkey

I am a 58 y/o Service Disabled Veteran.  For years I suffred PTSD and Depression. In 2006 my Testerone level was checked and I was found to be extremely low.  Over the years my amount of injections has changed and I was even put on Androgel for a period of time. I suffered a heart attack in August of 2013.   Note my body did not obsorb testerone thru my skin and injections are my only option.  Recently I had blood work  done and my RBC's where found to be unusually high.  I was advised to get off testerone so I quit cold turkey.  In doing so and about two weeks later my blood pressure is skyrocketing as well as my Pain level I have been dealing with for years.
If I recall this was what I experienced prior to be putting on  a testerone regiment. Extreme pain levels and extremely high blood pressure i.e. 170/110.  I take High Blood pressure meds but once again they seem to have nothing but negative side affects.  I am unable to exercise do to spinal injuries, 3 TBI's,  cervical and lumbar and surgery has been ordered but keeps getting cancelled do to blood work and blood pressure.  

Any help out here?
