Hi, this is Phil. I was on bicalutamide, and lupron for about one month. Due to the side effects my Oncologist discontinued the treatment.
I have been on Zytiga and prednisone since Aug. 2019, and am able to tolerate it much better. My PSA is less than 1 and my liver enzymes are doing well. I can certainly understand your concerns. Side effects can be difficult to tolerate as they were in my case, but we won’t know how it will work out until we try it. I have heard from others that they have had only minor side effects on Lupron. Everyone is different. If you haven’t already tried it I would like to recommend the National Cancer Institute website. I wish you the very best of luck in your treatment.
