Re: Let the Roller Coaster Ride Begin

Aloha Phred,
I am sorry to hear your not so good news. If I may suggest, ask for the one month shots instead of the 3 month shot. I was on ADT, 3 mth shots for a year. The shot site hurt for many months and got to the point where I could hardly walk or exercise. The speciallist we saw said that occasionally bulk shots like that tear muscle tissue apart causing the pain. A cortizone shot helped me get back to my exercises.

Thanx to you too Joe. Back in 2007 I was on monthly shots of Lupron and experienced severe injection site pain for days after the shot was delivered.

My current Urologist (just switched) assures me that these shots (Evigard I think) do not cause injection site pain ... but, we'll see.

We do believe everything our doctors tell us, right?

(smile again plus a wink)
