I had radiation treatment and have been on Lupron for 6 months. I have developed a serious lung problem (hypersensitivity pneumonia) which I think is caused by the Lupron. My oncologist recommended that I stop Lupron until the lung issue is solved. It has taken 2-1/2 months and many tests to diagnose. The pneumonia probably won't completely disappear until the Lupron is completely gone.
My last (1 month) injection was on January 13. But I know lupron stays in the body for a long time after the last injection. Can any body quantify how long it takes for Lupron to be completely cleared from your system? Any anecdotal information?
