New to cancer chat. Starting my 6 month ADT in 2 weeks, then salvage radiation in January. Most worried about the hormone therapy. I've watched all the videos on hormone therapy, and I'm aware of the many side effects. I'm mostly wondering about individual cancer survivor experiences.

    Individual reactions to ADT ('hormone therapy') vary a great deal, as you already know. Although not pleasant by any stretch, you can counteract the effects by being very active. Try to walk, exercise etc.

    I had ADT for 18 months and survived just fine.
