I posted the question recently about ADT formula and side effects. I was on Lupron, and then we tried Trelstar and I found the side effects - especially hot flashes - markedly increased. SO I asked to switched back to Lupron.
There is a shortage of Lupron ? Really - does anyone know about that ?
So we went with Eligard for this round.
I did bring up the thought about Orchiectomy which I first heard about here - and their reaction was that is was quite usual and there is a whole program and study that they have at University of Chicago - it is a teaching hospital and a nurse representative came into the room and gave me a lot of information about what they were doing. I had no idea. At this point I am doing reading and may have a consult with the surgeon - need to think about this as an option. My cancer produced bone Mets and my Oncologist said that I will be on ADT for the rest of my life - or this Orchiectomy option.
I would so like to hear from anyone who chose this option.
Best to all
