I was recently diagnosed with prostate cancer, after speaking with my doctor he suggested removing my prostate.well i had the surgery and had my prostate removed.....it was one of the hardest decisions I have ever had to make. I had my surgery on July 10th 2019, since then I have gotten an eligard shot because the doctor told me that the cancer had gotten into one of my lymphnodes.
Has anyone else had the eligard shots?..my doctor and I discussed the side effects of the shots,,,but I did not think they would be as bad as they are! I am just having a very hard time dealing with everything that is going on. I was just wondering if anyone one out there has had the eligard shots and what there side effects were.....I have gained some weight, i get hot flashes. and I am constantly sore and achy....especially in the back and shoulders...any insight on this would be greatly appreciated.......thank you

Doctors are quick to denigrate and abuse men by their female accomplices to abuse and torture

Eligard affects men differentl . Some seem to tolerate it well, others suffer extreme side effect . It can be debilitating. I've been on it for about 20 months and the two worst side effects have been nausea and fatigue and weakness. I can sleep 12 hours. Stairs are a challenge. I think I'm getting some brain fog. Some guys have a lot of pain and stiffnes . Others keep on playing golf. Whatever the side effects are though, remember that its keeping you alive

I have recently been diagnosed with very early stage of prostate cancer and I am curious what people have done about it

I want a male examination with no female seizing my genitals or deciding to abuse me as she wishes. Why can men not be given private examination?

Keep your female staff away from me and don't have them touch me for any pretext..

@Jagcbs1953 I was diagnosed from a higher PSA level. Because i was 76 my doctor wanted me to do radiation instead of surgery. I had a choice of 5 days of heavy radiation or 30 days of lighter. I took the 5 days which in retrospect I would not have done. Did 40 days in the Hyperbaric chamber to help with the effects. I have bladder after effects, wear pads etc and some sexual side effects, not to bad. If you do the radiation ask a lot of questions.
