    Has anyone had this "Antiandrogen" therapy?

    I read about this in this article. Just curious.

      I know little about this except that is is used by transgender people, can damage a liver and, if it is helpful against cancer that makes it wonderful.

      Best wishes & very very good luck.

      My initial therapy was androgen deprivation therapy (Eligard) for two years and IMRT (45 treatments), no surgery. At diagnosis my PSA was 25 and Gleason 8. I'm now almost eight years from diagnosis and my PSA is staying at 0.2 or less. Obviously can't comment about it as therapy for recurrent cancer.
