I was diagnosed with prostate cancer 3/26/2014 with a gleason score of 7 and PSA was 26.5. In April I started my hormone therapy with 2 injections
of Firmagon/degarlex. In May I had my first Lupron injection which created all the side affects. My last blood work was done July 1 2014 and my testosterone level was at 7 and my PSA drop to 4.3. I will undergo Brachytherapy (radiation seed implants) on 8/4/2014 and scheduled to have another Lupron injection 8/22/2014. If I had a choice i would not have the injection and want to know if it's needed since my PSA has dropped dramatically? If the injection is needed are there more to come?
