My SEs wore off at about
9 months past the end of the 6-month shot cycle. I was almost back to normal - threw off almost 50 pounds I had packed on.
But then my PSA shot up, and I had to do another one. Now the PSA is rising in spite of the Lupron, so they made it a permanent deal and threw in Casodex.
Oh well ....
