    Side effects after lupron

    After getting off lupron do all side effects diminish at the same rate as testosterone return? Or do some diminish before testosterone completely returns?

    Diagnosed at age 73 Feb 2019 DRE indicates nodule PSA 2.8
    Aug 2019 PSA 3.1, urologist suggests biopsy in Oct

    Results of biopsy: 2 of 12 cores positive. Low volume T2b, intermediate risk, GS 3+4, PSA 3.10, prostate cancer, perineural invasion. Followed up with MRI to help decide between surgery and IMRT. MRI shows suspicious PIRADS 5 lesion measuring 2.cm in diameter, with associated left neurovascular bundle involvement. Started 6 month lupron series Feb 2020, 28 sessions of high dose IMRT Apr 15, 2020

    Side effects, loss of libido, emotional, infrequent warm flashes. The emotional side seems most obvious. Sexual functions okay except ejaculate has changed and without libido it is an academic process that requires much focus.

    An interesting question, Guy. I would guess it is a pretty technical question, which may be why there has been no responses so far. This might be one to ask your doctor.

    If you get an answer, please let us know.

    it takes 6 months for lupon to wear off after a 6 month use

    Testosterone will take that long, at least, to come back too.

    That is what I was told and what I experianced.
