Paul Edwards Posted August 19, 2014 Share Posted August 19, 2014 Dr Charles Myers Jnr (nickname Snuffy Myers) is one of the best known medical oncologists specialising solely on prostate cancer in the USA. He produces a free video on prostate cancer treatment each week, and a paid monthly newsletter service. He also writes books. In a recent video (15 August 2014) Dr Myers talked about Firmagon. See this Dr Myers Video at: http://askdrmyers.wordpress.com/2014/08/15/firmagon-pca-remissions/ 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). I was interested in Dr Myers' comments about how the Firmagon injection should be given so as to reduce the pain at the site of the injection.

After putting up with monthly Firmagon injections for 9 months, I'm fed up with the injection site pain each month and I'm now on three monthly Zoladex injections.
