Male hot flashes

Hi, I'm Golf4mel

Are there any other men undergoing cancer treatment using Lupron and Zytiga who have leveraged acupuncture to lessen or eliminate hot flashes?

Yes. I have taken four Lupron injections. I get hot flashes, confusion, depression. The worst is muscle loss and fatigue. I have a lot of leakage. Started Kegel training. Also PT for shoulder weakness. I had a radical prostatectomy, 44 intensity modulated photon radiation treatments and four injections of Lupron. I had shrinkage from all three.

Hi, I'm Golf4mel

Thanks for responding. My symptoms are not nearly as severe at this point,

I am going to use acupuncture starting next week and will keep you posted with results.
