Well, you have found the place. All here are open to discuss everything and anything that will help you. We are all here for each other.
So, to start off, what is your PSA now? How are you tolerating the Lupron? How about those hot flashes? As some say here they are your own personal summers. I have moved on to Eligard every 6 months. New name same results. Love the shot. I call it harponing. Have you talked with an Oncologist about additional treatment options? I have started chemo with Taxotere. Not bad. New haircut, but PSA has started to drop. Hope spring eternal!
Others will join in soon. Many here and elsewhere will add you to our prayer lists. We are all partners on this journey. We are all in this together. I will check back soon to see how things are going.
Peace, love, and War Eagle,
