Yeah - ART is much more effective if you are ADT as well. While the side effects are annoying they are a small price to pay for the potential of a cure. 2 & 1/2 years ADT so far here. No more chems for now, but my T and PSA are still undetectable. Keeping my fingers crossed.
I must admit that the perspective from a neutered POV is very novel and often entertaining.
