I might ask if you could be changed to Lupron. My oncologist feels that if one treatment has bad side effects that we could try another. I am not complaining. I am not completly free of side effects but I seem to be seeing more people here having more pronounced issues with Eligard and Zoledex than with Lupron. I have to admit you are the first poster I have seen on Trelstar but I know its a LHRH drug as well. I know that when HT fails it is possible to get back to remission on the competing products. Good luck on your trek. Welcome to Healingwell. This site for me has been a haven to share and learn from others experiences. You'll be seeing a post soon from Bluebird or Idahosurvivor. They are our moderators and they are truly fantastic people. I encourage you to post more information about
your experience with PCa. If for no other reason, to allow others who arrive with similar numbers and treatments to draw from you. Thanks Turkino and good luck! I hope the best for you.
