Ive been doing some reading and it seems like it’s recommended that if you go on ADT, you should do a bone density test, and if you are losing bone density go on fosomax or something. Also reading about
monitoring blood sugar, among other things.
No doctor ever mentioned this to me, including my RO.
Have you done any of that, or anything else to monitor overall health while on ADt? Has your dr recommended any if it? Is it important for short course ADT or only if you are on it more than a year?
Drs tend to treat their specialty, maybe my RO is only concerned about
the treatment he offers, I don’t want to be left out there to figure this out myself. I don’t see him at all, until it’s time for simulation, I’m only seeing nurses
I tested Blood sugar today, and it’s alraedy up, 3 days after first shots
I am not a doctor, just another guy without a prostate
