Tue, Apr 2 8:39am · Prostate Cancer: What treatments did you choose after surgery? in Prostate Cancer

In response to the Firmagon treatment. So far very little side effects after the third week. Small hot flashes that do not last more than a minute. It did do some weird things with my thinking soon after the shot. It is hard to explain but it changed my disposition somewhat. I felt more anxious and more tired at the same time. That seems to have gone away, but I do seem more tired. All that aside minimal side effects so far. I was told my next treatment will be Leupron. Will see how that goes.

I had robotic prostate surgery September 2018 at Mayo clinic Rochester MN. My PSA was 12.9 and Gleason 8. I had 2 positive lymph nodes out of 21. I just had a PSA test 6 months after surgery it is 0.05 which doc says is very good. But he is trying to convince me to do hormone therapy and also radiation. I would like to have more information on this if anyone has been through this. My radiation oncologist is recommending 39 radiation treatments and 2 to 3 years hormone therapy.
