Title: PC hormone therapy
Post by: sam_m1 on November 13, 2018, 03:30:30 pm
I was diagnosed with prostate cancer and I am looking at different treatment options. Mainly radiation and surgery. Also looking into hormone therapy with the radiation, but I heard there could be some major sexual downfalls with hormone therapy.

Any man going through PC, how did hormone therapy effect you?

Hey sam I was so confused with the process at first but I eventually got a hold of it. I went through hormone therapy and I did not receive as many of hte side effect that I anticipated. I gained a little weight, but I just had to work out more. I read that there was a chance of developing breasts, but after doing my fair share of talking to people and doing research I decided I would try hormone therapy, and was lucky to just gain weight.
