Welcome Blue Duck
Having been down a similar path,I will give you my experience to date. Iam closing in on 10 months of Lupron-casodex. Other than loss of libido and a little sag in the waistline, i have been getting along just fine. Its a nice feeling to have a undectable psa for a change.Hopeing to go intermitant late june. Will I become refactory? Most likely. But iam not going to let the thought of it rule my life. There are many new treatments and drugs on the horizon that give us hope. Chin up and move forward. This is a good place for support and information
