Testosterone check after Radiation and lupron

It has just been a month over a year since my last Radiation Oncology treatment.. They did the 20 treatments in the summer of 2019. I had only one shot of the Lupron at Mayo MN in about April of that year.. then we waited 2 months before radiation. After my Radiation and PSA around o.5 the Oncologist optioned for NOT giving me a second Lupron shot.. I am 83 now.. My Oncologist is at a central Iowa Clinic but he had trained with the Mayo MN Doctor.. The Machines were to be similar so I opted to do the daily Radiation in Central Iowa.. I never knew what my Testosterone levels were either from Mayo or the Central Iowa Clinic.. I had not bothered to inquire.. but I will go on My Chart and ask.. perhaps you are being treated at a clinic that uses Epic and you can simply email you doctor with a non-emergency question.. Ken

Ken, I have sent a message to my medical oncologist (sent on late afternoon this past Monday ) and have not received an answer at this point. I'm not looking to do something that will negatively affect me but I want to know the testosterone level. By the way, I went daily for my 39 sessions of radiation. I was lucky that the cancer center is only 15 minutes from me. Good luck.
