I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer in Dec. '09. I had 40 external beam radiation treatments and Lupron Depot shots for 2 years and then I stopped them. Two years later, PSA is back up and I restarted the Lupron shots last January. Urologist told me that they are normally only effective for 1-1/2 to 2 years and then the cancer will mutate and no longer need testosterone to exist. I'd be interested in hearing from others about their experiences with Lupron.
