The condition can lead to serious health problems, primarily pain and infertility. A major symptom of endometriosis is pain, mostly in the lower abdomen, lower back, and pelvic area.

Lupron Wearing off?

I did a six month treatment of lupron. I was wondering about how long it will take to wear off? We are going to be TTC and want to go on a cruise in April, so I am trying to figure it all out. Any input?

Before my complete hysterectomy, I had a total of 18 Lupron injections over the course of 2 1/2yrs. It seemed after the last injection that they would start wearing off just a couple of months later.

Personally, I wish I hadn't done Lupron therapy. For me, it didn't have any long term benefits. Lupron also causes muscle deterioration and bone loss, which contributed to my fibromyalgia and arthritis pain.

I have however heard of others who had great success with Lupron and they went on to lead relatively pain-free lives for several years after treatment. It's different for everyone.

I hope this helps :)

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!

    It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
