Cancer: Prostate board


Quote from Donbart:
The Dr started me on LUPRON, on a shot every four months, basis. The "hot flashes" are driving me NUTS! Can hardly sleep at night and sweating during the day, too. Anyone out there been able to get relief for this?



I TAKE HARMONE SHOTS EVERY 3 MONTHS. I TAKE ZOLADEX AND IT GIVES ME SOME HOT FLASHES, BUT NOT BAD. YOUR DOCTOR MAY CAN SWITCH YOU TO ANOTHER HARMONE AND SEE IF IT HELPS.
I HAD A RADICAL PROSTATECTOMY OF THE PROSTATE ON JUNE 28,2006 &
THE DOCTOR WAS NOT ABLE TO GET ALL THE CANCER, SO I HAVE HAD 35 TREATMENTS OF RADIATION AND TAKING THE HARMONE EVERY 3 MONTHS.
ABOUT THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE IS INCONTINENCE, URGENCY TO GO TO THE BATH ROOM. I HAVE TO WEAR A PAD ALL TIME.
IF ANYONE KNOWS ANY HELP FOR THIS PROBLEM, PLESE LET ME KNOW.
GOOD LUCK ,DONBART ON FINDING HELP FOR THE "HOT FLASHES".
