Side effects after stopping Eligard
I have stage 4, advanced, aggressive, Gleason 9, Grade 5 Prostate Cancer. One year ago, I went through radiation and started hormonal therapy, which brought my PSA to undetectable. In July, my oncologist said it would be best to stop hormonal therapy early as the risks were outweighing the rewards for me since I also have a blocked artery in the brain stem and heart failure. Eligard can accelerate strokes and heart attacks and in my case this is not good. My question is, has anyone experienced fatigue, hot flashes and malaise that have INCREASED in intensity since stopping hormonal therapy? All of these are getting worse instead of better for me.
