I have been getting Lupron shots since Jan/2007. I just got one today, a little sore, 2nd day is the worst, then it goes away quickly. Walk it off. Gotta keep moving. I don't get hot flashes any more. The doc talked about Casodex w/ Lupron, waiting on blood work.
Found out Jan. 07
The doc said chemo or radiation was not an option.
Started Lupron to shrink it before surgery, did not work.
Radical prostentechomy Sept. 5.
Couldn't get it all, it was outside the sack and into lower lymph nodes.
Cathader removed about 3 months.
Incontinont for about 3 months
Peranial rectal absesses w/ drains for about 4 months <MRSA>
Continued Lupron until Oct. 08 <psa.04 to .06>.
Started losing weight. <194 to 170>
Now trying Zoladex, next shot in Dec. 18, then we will see what the PSA is, before deciding on future treatments.
Now in the T4 N1 stage.
Lupron=memory, tired all the time, joints and muscle aches, hot flashes.
Zoladex=memory, tired after doing something, left back rib cage is tender when inhaling, all joints and muscles below the waist ache, the worst is the left hip.

Blood work came back .07. now back on Zoladex for three months then we will see what happens.

The last doctors visit, he said He was suprised to see how well I'am doin. He also told me he had second thoughts of doin the surgery, because he thought I was too far gone, But I will show em.
