Waiting for a RRP on 3/26, my Dr. gave me a Lupron shot (3 Month) to put me on "Hold".

Is it my brain or something the Lupron is doing to give me a warm sensation in the groin.

Prior to a PSA test, I had 0 symptoms or problems.
DIAG. 2/08
DRE POSITIVE
PSA 6.8
CONTAINED, LEFT SIDE, GLEASON 9
LUPRON, (3 MO.) 2/28
SURG, SCHED. 3/26/08

It must be your brain, I've been taking Lupron for several months and never had any sensation like that. The only warm sensations I have are hot flashes mostly at night every hour on the hour that last for about 5 minutes. Other than those and maybe slight breast enlargement I have no problems with Lupron.
