I’m approaching the end of my 4th month on ADT. I’ve had a fairly easy time mostly, but over the last month I think it’s catching up with me.
Bellyfat, which I lost a few years ago, is back. Gained about
8 pounds, ALL in the belly.
I’m restless at night, don’t sleep as well. I’ve always slept like a baby when down in Florida where I am now
My bad knee and bad shoulder are way worse (yeah I fell on the shoulder twice, but it’s not getting better) I’ve got trigger finger which has gotten worse as well
My sense of balance is off for sure.
And my body hair is thinn9ng out, with some patchy bald spots.
I don’t really have fatigue, that’s the one bright spot. But it’s still hard to work out with bad joints. Last year down here at my Florida home, I was an animal in the gym. This year I’m feeling like all the other 68-78 year olds.
I know we tend to attribute everything to the Lupron. Maybe it’s not all from that. All I know is I don’t feel like a young 68 any more.
I pray that this 6 month regimen with SRT works, and I don’t have to go back on it in a year. and I admire and feel for all the guys who are on it long term.
No question here really, just a comment.
I am not a doctor, just another guy without a prostate
