You need to ask the oncologist or your GP, radar - have you got a review appointment any time soon?

I was on testosterone therapy before I was diagnosed. I did ask if the testosterone therapy contributed to my PCa, the doctors said that its was unlikely as the level was kept below what would be normal for me.

The testosterone therapy was however, stopped immediately following diagnosis and my GP has told me to "stay off it". 

So I have low testosterone and ED. 

I suppose you have to ask your doctors, as always, everybody varies.

Well most guys, me included, seem to put on weight and I wonder whether there could be another explanation for your losing weight. I would have a word with your GP.

thanks,lyn i dont get review appointments,just 6 monthly psa checks,my test is below low reference limit,its not the weight loss its muscle mass and bone density ,barry regards putting on weight with zoladex the weight goes to your stomach,the problem with me even when i eat a lot it goes to my stomach and nowhere else,i suppose i will just have to put up with it,thanks.
