Gidday. I was diagnosed at the age of 55 (in 2000) with PC and had a TURP done and radiation tratment. PSA was about 18 at the time. PSA then settled down to about 1 - 2 level until about 3 years ago. Was having annual tests during most of this time. PSA suddently started climbing rapidly and am now on Lucrin (hormone treatment). PSA has dropped to virtually unreadable now. I have 3 monthly tests and hormone injection.
Has anybody else out there been on or has any comments about the hormone treatment? Apart from the side effects of impotency I have not had any to speak of. Get tired and ratty for a couple of days after the injection is all.
How long do you stay on this? I was told it would loast 4 - 5 years and loose its efficacy and they would need to try something else. Has anybody had this experience?
