This forum is for the discussion of anything to do with Prostate Cancer. There are only four rules:
No fundraisers, no commercials (although it is OK to recommend choices of treatment or medical people based on your personal research; invitations to participate in third-party surveys are also acceptable, provided there is no compensation to YANA);
No harvesting e-mail addresses for Spam;
No insults or flaming - be polite and respectful at all times and understand that there may be a variety of points of view, all of which may have some validity;
Opinions are OK, but please provide as much factual evidence as possible for any assertions that you are making
Failure to abide by these simple rules will result in the immediate and permanent suspension of your posting privileges.
Since this is an International Forum, please specify your location in your post.
I agree with Frank. Get the shots. I finished 45 proton treatments at UFPTI in Dec. They wanted me to get 2 3-month shots, but I got them to agree to 6-one month shots (Trelstar).
A fellow patient I knew during treatment got the 3-month shots and I just seen him at our 6 month check-up. He complained of much the same symptoms as you. The only symptoms I had were hot flashes and they were very minor.
