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 am aged 55, living in France, and have been on ADT, Firmagon, for four months now.
It is projected that I will remain on Firmagon or Luperon for three years.
My body hair remains normal,how long has it taken to fade for you?
My libido remains but it is purely mental. I am interested in looking at women, I imagine having intercourse with them but my body is on strike.
I enjoy embracing my wife, kissing, etc but attempts at sexual stimulation feel ticklish and that is all.
I am hoping that this will return to feeeling sexual again when the ADT is completed.
Some of the information you are looking for can probably be found in the Survivors Stories section of this site. In the "Category of Therapy Chosen" area click on ADP. Pick and choose among ADP Primary Treatment entrees.
