Comment from: on Treatment for 10+ years Published: February 09

Fifteen years ago, my husband was given 5 years to live because his cancer had spread to his lymph nodes. He has been on Lupron depot for the past 14 years. He has also been taking Casodex for the past 10 years or when it first came out. He takes naps when necessary but he is still very active. He has complained this past year of bone pain and some dizziness. My husband is 84 years old and takes care of 15 steers, 2 horses and 2 dogs. Last year he stacked 100 bales of hay by himself. He has a strong faith in God, a positive attitude and a sense of humor. I'm sure the Lupron and Casodex also helps. He believes in quality of life and not quantity of life. I hope this review helps other advanced cancer patients.

severe muscle cramps, moderate bone loss in less than 6 months of use, severe GI problems, weight loss, stomach bleeding, anemia. may be great for some, but if you have any allergies or any kind of stomach sensitivity, WATCH OUT! had to stop after one year, side effects worse than disease.
