I am a 18 year survivor. Following a psa break after over 13 years in remission, I started hormone thearpy with Lupron, changing to Zoladex & Casodex. The thearpy lasted 4 years. I ceased treatment a year ago. PSA remains essentially in a normal range. However, I am still experiencing the side effects of hot flashes 1 year later. Based on some recent medical work, it is believed the thyroid has depoted the hormone and is doing a slow release. Anyone with in formation?
