My belly got pretty big from Lupron, and i was concerned that it was really hard. (fat is generally soft, right). So Dr Google was calling and i found this....,https://www.menshealth.com/weight-loss/a19543924/abs-diet-hard-belly-fat/
It talked about
Visceral Fat being hard, unlike subcutaneous fat which is soft and jiggly. It also talked about
Visceral Fat being "a ticking time bomb" and known to cause diabetes and heart disease.
I already have heart disease.
So its really messed up in my opinion, that RO's , or at least mine, one of the top PC RO's in the country, don't talk about
this side effect and at least let the patient know that by going on Lupron, this is a risk they need to accept.
I wonder if other RO's do talk about
this with patients. Curious for some feedback.
Nothing i can do now other than work hard to lose it. But it's annoying. Not sure what i would do if i recur again.
I am not a doctor, just another guy without a prostate
