@sannira, I'm tagging @flor @fmh1, as both have mentioned taking Eligard (leuprolide).
How are you doing on the Lupron shots?

Hi Colleen,
It has been close to 4 weeks since I got my first Lupron shot. So far so good except for the sex drive. I have completely lost it. The only other side effect is an occasional hot flash at night.
I also started Chemo 2 weeks ago. I had some serious throbbing pain all over my body for couple of days. Then I had headaches. Then only medication I took for these are Tylenol and/or Motrin.
Now I have been suffering from mouth sores for the past 4 days and it is terrible. I also lost my appetite and sense of taste. Due to loss of appetite, mouth sores and becoming hard to eat, I have lost 5 pounds.
Because of fatigue, headache mouth pain, I haven’t exercised or walked in a week. Just 10 days ago I ran 4 miles on the treadmill!
I am crushing all my food and trying to drink it and also started some protein shakes. I am planning to walk on the treadmill for at least 15 minutes today.
