Testosterone recovery after ADT is all over the map. I think a lot depends on your age, but in general it's something like half the time you were on it to recover from it. "Recovered" means just getting to the bottom end of the normal range, not even necessarily your own baseline.
I was on Lupron and Casodex for 3 years, but my testosterone recoverd blessedly quickly, within 3-6 months it was "normal", and over the next few months recovered to well above my baseline. I felt fairly "normal" about
3 months after ADT2 was over.
On the other hand, some never recover testosterone. From what I've seen, the recovery is quite unpredictable.
