I have been on Lupron since June 2016. For the fun of it they added Zytiga and Prednisone June 2017. The side effects suck (those of you who know me know that that suck is my favorite word dealing with cancer). But, to my surprise, there was one positive side effect. In the past I could never stay down under water as long as my 110 lb wife when we scuba dived. Now I can stay down longer than she can. I just got done with a scuba trip where normal 45 minute dives were at least an hour long. In one case, after spending most of my time at 60 feet I came up little over 70 minutes with air to spare.
Let’s forget that I am no longer strong enough to pull myself onto the dive boat (the dive masters very sly when they pulled me up so that I would not notice them. I, of course, did not let them know that). Being a chemically inhanced eunuch made me Aqua Man!
It almost makes up for the muscle loss, fat gain, hot (and cold) flashes, joint pain, very bad dreams, killer fatigue, the death of Mr. Happy and all of the other wonderful side effects..
They say almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenadines. I say that I just got back from a dive trip where I spent over 20 hours underwater. I will take my victories where I can!
