My consultant has recently started me on Prostap injections after three months of being on Gabapentin and morphine and still being in immense pain. I was reluctant to have the injection but it was presented as my only choice as the next level of treatment. My laparoscopy is not due until Oct/Nov. He also prescribed me HRT to take daily. Do I have to take this? Will it affect the Prostap doing what it's meant to? I read the side effects leaflet and it sounds worse than the Prostap itself. I appreciate it is supposed to be for post-menopausal women but at 22 I dont want a higher risk of cancer/stroke/pulmonary embolism or to grow a moustache! Any advice or experiences welcome. Thankyou
