Hi everyone. Had my second firmagon shot last week and ART mapping 3 weeks ago. Waiting for RO to set up start date. PSA now .05 and T=22. Opinions on whether to do nodes welcomed. I think the RO said no because of side effects and his belief the PC is still in the prostate bed. Also, got trimix 17.6/ 0.6/ 6 which I guess is the weaker strength. I did 11 units this morning with limited results...65% for maybe an hour with lots of wifey attention.
Could I try again tonight or must I wait "24 hours?
 
Thanks, Mike

Mike,
 
My uro is of the "max 3 times a week" school, so he would probably frown on such a short interval.
 
I've not even considered doing them that close together, so had no "pointed" experience.

My ED specialist says to wait 24 hours between injections ... but no more than 3 times a week. So I asked just to make sure and he's OK with 3 days in a row, as long as I wait 24 hours between each. Once or twice I've done 2 days in a row (with no problems), but never 3. Good Luck!

Thanks Tigerfan! What strength is your trimix?

Mike -- My Rx: PAPV 30MG/PHENTLMN 1MG/PE-1 10MCG/ML. I've settled on using 20 units (0.20cc). 65% for close to an hour is a great response for a first try! Be careful increasing the dose (I can’t up mine without checking with my doc). Be patient you’ll get there.
