RB: We have gone down the same road, my Lupron shot was adminstered on 4-20-08 and my surgery was 6-19-2008 so I am dealing with the residual of the Lupron also.I was given a three month shot.
I also asked my Doctor if the Lupron would skew the findings of the path. report with respect to margins and encapsulation, he was emphatic that it would not, if there was any cancer outside of the prostate, in the lymph nodes or margins it would show up in the path report even if we had Lupron shots. Especially with our short time on Lupron we can rest assured the cancer, if there was any didn't disappear in that short of a time. I guess what he was saying is the path report was to be believed and not questioned as far as our clear margins go.
