    Lupron with add-back therapy
    duckcanuck posted:

    I am new to this forum--glad I found it. My Dr. put me on monthly shots of Lupron and it helped immensely--was pain free for nearly 2 months which was a record for me. We started the add-back therapy and within 5 days, all the pain came back. Dr. said this shouldn't cause pain as the hormone levels are so minimal, but it seems oddly coincidental that the pain started at exactly the same time. Has anyone else had their pain triggered with add-back therapy while on Lupron?

    Hi Duck! Was just wondering how things are going now. Did you decide to stay on the Lupron for the six months? My pain wasn't triggered by Add Back, but did take a few months to go away...
    Endometriosis...bah! I will endure. I will flourish. And I am still beautiful! We are NOT alone!

    Hey, i am almost a month in to my first shot of Lupron. I am also doing the add-back therapy (I started add-back the same day), how long before you noticed a change once you started the Lupron? I'm still is pain and wondering if I should continue taking the Lupron.
