I'm on 3 weeks into 2nd round of prostap, during my first round I was given livial, this didn't suit me so I was moved to kilovance, this still didn't suit but I just carried on with it.
I gained weight, still had hot flushes, insomnia, suffered badly with my mental health, I was like a walking time bomb, exploding intermittently.
Anyway, fast forward 9 months and here I am again, I started taking the kilovance as directed but found that I became depressed and moody pretty fast, so I did the only thing that I could do, which was to stop the hrt, I'm still not 100% but even after a week off it I feel better, the hot flushes are worse but hey, at least winter is coming.. My family can huddle around me to keep warm and I'll save on the heating!
So can prostap be done without hrt? Does anyone recommend a hrt that is less horrific?
I go for my next injection on Friday and I'm half expecting them to refuse treatment if I'm not on the hrt.
I do also have coeliac disease, and have been told that I may be at risk of osteoporosis.
