Hi Annie, as stated above, stopping the HT for a short time doesn't guarantee that libido will return in that period anyway but I am sorry to say that hormone holidays are not usually recommended for men on bicalutimide only, just injectable hormones. This is because the two work in very different ways - if you stop & then restart bicalutimide it can actually feed the cancer.
I guess if all is stable, you could ask about whether it is possible to stop the bical in the knowledge that when he goes back onto HT it might be an injectable version instead? Hormone holidays are more correctly called intermittent hormone therapy or IHT and are generally reserved for men wth incurable prostate cancer who have been on Zoladex / Prostap / etc for at least 2 years and have low stable PSA with no signs of progression.
