Completed EBRT (IMRT) and brachy boost in January. Continuing on Lupron. Last of 3 month doses recently. The nightly hot flashes are a bummer. Flash, covers off, cool down, covers on...repeat every 90 mins. Ugh. Plus all the other nasty side effects. Whew.
But! most recent blood work: PSA from 0.1 to 0.03 and testosterone remains <10. So, it's working. Not sure what to expect post Lupron. What side effects go away? What things return? Lose wt? BP go down? Bone density no longer an issue? Testicles return to pre Lupron size? Sex drive? Anyone have any experience with this? I don't want to set myself up for failure and think everything returns to pre-treatment levels but I simply don't know what to expect. Or, are these changes my new normal? I'd appreciate anyone's feedback.
