I've been on prostap injections for two years and they have been a lifesaver for me. Basically it's all about quality of life, and the Prostap gives me that. However, I saw my consultant last week who says I have to stop them now, I can have this months and then he wants me to have the Mirena Coil fitted. My bone density was fine when I was scanned but he says it's too dangerous to carry on. I am gutted. Can I demand that I stay on them, how does it work, can I take all responsibility for the side effects. I am totally dreading this as I know I will not be able to function, I have it so bad, I can barely walk most days, I have constant pain, bowel problems, headaches - you name it, I get it.
