I just got on this website today.63 yrs old, gleason 8 positive 90 per cent on 10 biopsiys. have 5 more radiartion treatmrnts left out of 44 and have done 4 one month shots of lupron. Want to get off lupron asap, all sideeffects getting to me . Doctors want up to two years of this but I can immagine. How dangerous is doing only 6 or eight months and what is another alternative if anyone has thoughts. Thanks freaked out and steepless from sweats and hot flashes
