Great news Cheryl,
If HT is what it is, I hear that Lupron has less side effects. I am on it and it has been tolerable. Eligard and Trelstar seem to have the severist side effects. I would ask about
that. But you are truly in good shape. Two years will be the recommendation likely. Then the vacations begin. I am a year away....tick tick...
