    Lupron Problems
    My experiences (visible and felt) so far with Lupron are loss of libido, hot flashes and a small amount of weight gain. I have experienced no breast enlargement. I will get my 5th (4 month) injection next month. I'm not sure how much longer I can stay on Lupron as my PSA has started to rise again (now at 4.64). That was in October. I'm anxious to see what my PSA is next month.

    I only was on Eligard for
    I only was on Eligard for one year- stopped back in April. In Decmember I started noticing a pain in the right breast about the nipple. To me it feels like a soft lump that is tender to the touch. That is what I am experiencing right now. I did have some swelling of breast tissue on the Eligard.

    short term vs long term
    what do you think about this subject. s/t vs l/t hormonal treatment. long term treatment i would think would have longer lasting side effects. you can take treatments in 1, 3, and 4 month injections. is that correct?
