Leading up to my first Lupron shot in November I was scared out of my wits and extremely anxious about the possible SE I had heard and read about from books, online, and those who personally experience them. It has been almost 2 months since my first of two, 3-month injections and, so far, I feel no side effects. I am grateful and relieved. My RO and urologist's nurse tell me that if I made it this far without SE, I likely will not experience any moving forward. Is that true from your collective experiences? If so, I want others who read this forum to know that it is definitely possible to not feel SE from Lupron.
Further, the Lupron has been effective: I dropped from a .34 PSA to a .07.
I begin my SRT treatments on 1/22. 40 treatments to the full pelvis, with the hope that any cancer that might be in my lymph nodes will also be eradicated (I showed LVI in my post-operative pathology). I am hoping and praying for a cure and the same for others (or their loved ones) on this forum who are battling this terrible disease as well.
I will keep you posted on my progress.
