I didn't see your reply until now. Yes I'm still on ADT/Lupron. My original therapy plan called for 24 months and I'll be inside 9 months to go on February 1. My MO took me off Casodex after 1 Year because SEs were difficult. I feel better as a result. If my PSA stays down, I will likely pause on Lupron this summer. At this point my biggest challenge is joint pain. I don't like taking pills as a rule so I'm trying to make it to Lupron free to further evaluate additional meds. Considering my advanced diagnosis, I'm going strong. I hope you are hanging tough and feeling well yourself. Thank you for reaching out. Happy New Year and Good Health.
What caused your joint pain? I had RALP 11/15/17 and started lupron & casodex 11/21/17, possibly for 2 - 3 years depending on how radiation goes, I guess, starting in Feb. possibly. What were your SE's on both, if you don't mind sharing?
