Comment:
My prostate, some lymphnodes, and tissue were removed due to a highly active form of prostate cancer. However, that did not stop the ever increasing PSA blood levels, neither did radiation treatment. Eligard did stop the PSA increase, but all sexual desire & activity for me has ended.

Comment:
Since Eligard, I have no desire to make love to my beautiful wife who I love dearly. I miss her and the closeness we felt. I am depressed, urinate more frequently and have become emaciated since ELigard.

Comment:
Within seconds after receiving my first injection of Eligard I experienced an intnese burning sensation at the injection site that did not begin to subside for more than ten minutes. Therefore I demanded that subsequent injections be preceded by a local anithsetic injection at the injection site. Even with preceding injections of lydacaine the subsequent injections were somewhat painful.
