Considering the beating chemo and hormone deprivation has done to my body, this is indeed relieving news. With MD Anderson doctor approval, I will take a "holiday" from Lupron. He suggests I may be good for 9 months to a year or more before I might need to consider hormone deprivation again. Additionally, I'm done with chemo. In summary, this means that I can focus on healing my treatment ravaged body and mind.
And this is truly good news.
