Darby Posted May 19, 2017 Share Posted May 19, 2017 Quick summary: Radical Prostatectomy 2000, 30 radiation treatments 2007, 30 radiation treatments Dec/Jan 2015/2016 following PMSA Pet scan (no bone metastases) Three months ago after my PSA doubled over 3 months to 1.2, my oncologist started me on Lucrin Depot 3 Months . The hot flashes started pretty soon after and progressively they got worse. They were exacerbated by stress/anxiety thoughts and situations and also by simply changing which side I was lying on in bed which I do several times a night. I also started experiencing some depression which I think was due in some part to tiredness from the hot flashes and night time trips to the bathroom. (PSA test two weeks ago showed PSA and testosterone to be 0) Last Thursday my oncologist started me on daily doses of 100mg Androcur which he said often helps control the flashes. Is this an unusual combination of treatments? I haven't found anything Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
