Used along with radiation to treat Gleason 9 prostate cancer with positive bladder margins at surgery. Recovered from surgery nicely. Even radiation was not bad, with minimal to no rectal or bladder problems. Androgen deprivation is a completely different animal.

Urologist suggested 45 radiation treatments, followed by three years of the hormone. I have been on it almost one year. My PSA is staying at .1, which is excellent. Hot flashes are not a big problem. A little weight gain. Lack of Libido is major problem. My wonderful wife and I have had to redo our thinking on our relationships. My urologist says a gleason 8 score is dangeous, thus the hormone use. I deal with it as a price to pay for the cancer to stay away!Read More Read Less
