Hi Pharma,

I am getting Degarelix, not Lupron, but my PSA went from 89 to 0.3 over the course of seven months of once a month injections.

I don't have my exact numbers in front of me at the moment, but after 2 months it had dropped considerably- 89 down to around 8.

I was also receiving IMRT radiation treatments.

Degarelix isn;t so bad- but I do get swelling and feel sick for a day or so the day after the injection.

Hope this helps!

Bill
