My one year of Lupron is up in March. My care team is split between going 18 months or stopping. Having joint pain and clicking in finger joints. Plus some of the other bonus round of side effects. Turning into the Pillsbury dough boy.
has begun. The second shot hit me harder than the first one did.
Kind of the same for me. I've had 4 six month shots in total. With the first one I started getting the hot flashes and some night sweats, and also some fatigue (but some of that fatigue was probably also due to the RT and anxiety about things in general)
. I didn't really start gaining weight though until after the 2nd shot, after I had been on ADT/Lupron for 10 or 11 months.
