Thanks! From the beginning, the plan has been to just have the one-time Lupron shot, given before radiation began, and that it would last for six months. (Tho a nurse did say that the effects could still linger on a bit, even up to a year or so). At this time, there isn't any plan to have another.
You asked why—-I am not really certain of that reasoning. I didn't question it, as until I started seeing some different plans of Lupron on here at Connect, I was never aware of some having additional Lupron shots.That could change, of course, depending on where this cancer journey takes me. So far, so good.
You stated that you have been on Lupron for 4.5 monhs—-has that been just one shot, or are you getting more shots during that timeframe?

I received a 3 month shot approximately 6 weeks before radiation treatment and a 2nd 3 month shot about 4 weeks after completing radiation. Presuming a low PSA score at my next blood test I hope to stop the Lupron. My concern is that some MDs like to prolong Lipton treatment for as much as 2 years to ensure that the cancer does not recur. At the point you are highly unlikely to ever regain you libido.
