Snowy asks: Degarelix (Firmagon) has just been put on the NHS in UK for men with advanced hormone dependent prostate cancer whose disease has spread to the spine. Does anyone in Australia have any experience and knowledge of Degarelix please?
One of the drugs used in androgen deprivation therapy is Firmagon (degarelix). Firmagon requires a monthly injection. There can be severe pain at the site of the injection (caused by bruising and rashes which can last for 3-4 days each month). This post has been updated with additional suggestions about how to miminise the pain from a Firmagon injection.
