Hello Ido4 i am pretty adamant i dont want any meds although i am pleased it works for you. I was on Citalopram for a while a few years a while back and hadnt known before the affects on your sex drive, so i quickly got off that. I really dont need that on top of the HT as my actual sex drive is only diminished not destroyed ( so far )...
I think i need to address my issues through the counsellor if i can , mostly it is do with my past and i know initiated by the thoughts of the future with the PCa but i do feel i can get to a much better place permanently through the counselling.
At the start i was told 2 years on the Prostap but the other day in my care discussion after Radiotherapy session she mentioned i could plan to finish the injections at 18 months ( 1 year to go ) which was a bonus as i am seriously counting down the days.
I feel i should be grateful to be given a chance of a full life but i think as i was told right at the beginning i was curable so i didn't think like that and just focused on the possible issues for the future, and also whilst on the HT . Bit selfish of me i know, and i don't want my wife to suffer any more than she has to . My counsellor says i need to think more of myself and be kind to myself as she feels i am too hard on myself.
So, i am considering going monthly instead of 3 monthly but i am leaning towards staying on the Prostap as other than the mental issues ( exacerbated by my past issues ) i am doing pretty good on it. I have no physical issues really , i have actually lost half a stone and only get mild hot flushes.
Anyway we will have to see . It may be i have the same old worst effects after every injection even with a lower dose. Gotta suck it and see i suppose.
So all the best to you .
