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

    34
    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!
