Has anyone out there had this kind of treatment for recurring PCa?  I just had my first PSA post surgery today and will not know the results for a couple of days.  We are hoping that all the cancer is gone. I read literature about it and supposedly it starves the cancer cells of testosterone without affecting your libido.  I read about it in one of the books sent to me from USTOO.  Any comments on this therapy?
