Eligard With ERBT or Not?
I have a dear friend who was diagnosed with prostate cancer in Jan of this year. After multiple tests and biopsies, including MRI and PET that show no spread, it is suggested that he go the ERBT route, which he is ok with. Hormone therapy (Eligard) had never been mentioned until his most recent discussion with the radiologist, and he felt that this is considered optional. After reading side effects, he is apprehensive, and feels that the risks might outweigh the benefits. At 79, quality of life is definitely an issue. Any thoughts or experiences either way would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks!
