In response to the Firmagon treatment. So far very little side effects after the third week. Small hot flashes that do not last more than a minute. It did do some weird things with my thinking soon after the shot. It is hard to explain but it changed my disposition somewhat. I felt more anxious and more tired at the same time. That seems to have gone away, but I do seem more tired. All that aside minimal side effects so far. I was told my next treatment will be Leupron. Will see how that goes.
