Thread: What I Need to Know About HT

    This is my first post, I had the Davinci surgery, 3D radiation for 6 weeks, 4 years ago. all good for 3 years, then my PSA started to rise.

    Been on the HT for 9 months, Enantone L.P 11.25mg. ( Leuprorelin ), from Japan. Now my PSA is .003, after my 3rd, three mo. shot. I am living in Thailand, retired O/O trucker from the U.S., married to my Thai Pharmacist wife.

    Reading thru all of the posts looking for some relief from the hot flashes. I will ask my doctor about the anti-depressants to see what his idea is on that! I too have the belly fat gain, and the hot flashes wake me every hour or so thru the night. SD is non-existent, boys have shrunk.

    I also have non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, which is in a watch and wait situation. I have a tumor that is located between the stomach and liver, and it has doubled in size since I started the HT! I am worried that the HT is causing this increase in size, and finding a Dr. here that specializes in both kinds of cancer that I have is impossible.

    I get the "I don't know" answer a lot from the 2 Dr's I have now. I am in the process of switching Dr's from Bangkok Siriraj Hospital to Dr's here in the North part of Thailand, where I live.

    It will be a lot easier and cheaper for me to drive to Chaing Mai from Lampang, than the flights we have had to take back and forth from Lampang to Bangkok.

    I am not sure how to enter all the history, that I see in the other post's at the bottom, but I will figure it out! Rail

    Welcome to the forum, guardrail.

    The info at the bottom of our posts is called a "signature." If you look through the list of "sticky" threads at the top of the forum (near where this thread is located), you'll find one about how to create a signature.

    I hope that some of our members can offer some information and insights for your situation. You'll find lots of support here.

    Wishing you the best!

    since I'm now 77 I just might not live long enough to enjoy Israelis cure for cancer,

    I've been on Lupron injections since 2003 yes 16 years and still alive
    I too dropped to zero psa goes up a bit drops a bit hangs below 4.0 all the time
    I went to new Oncoligist at VA in Portland who tells me the day will come when Lupron no longer work but they have some new meds will keep you going a few more years, I presume you've seen all the info on Israelis plan to cure cancer in next 1 year.
    I'm using RSO for the pain tumors in my spine ribs pelvis shit hurts but RSO solves this matter I just can't use Opiods too many side effects I have not had a climax for years it took a long time to accept this odd ending to some good sex, like some thing missing when you can't get your nut.
