My surgeon and radiologist had me go on Zoladex two months prior to commencing my radiation, which will begin the end of this month. As TC mentioned, the studies indicate that the HT will weaken the cancer cells, so the radiation will be more effective. How long I will be on the hormones is another issue. My surgeon feels two years, while I've read that only 6 months are necessary. I guess we'll wait until the radiation is done to make this decision. So far, I've not had a problem tolerating the Zoladex. I still take my one hour walks in the morning and have continued my sports officiating with no problems.
