Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
I am allergic to various pollen, but after having Vantas implanted, the allergy has increased severely.
From this study (1 month ago):
I had prostate surgery at Alexian Bros Hospital in Hoffman Estates in June, 2005. Radiation treatment began Northwestern Hospital in October and a Zoladex injection in early November.
Taste loss occurred about 3 to 4 weeks after injection. Taste came back within 1 month.
one night,about 3 weeks after the zoladex was injected, I felt as if I had bugs crawling under my skin from the knees down. It felt as if my nerve were misfiring. It was not painful.However, I lost all muscular control of my feet from my ankle down which gradually improved over the 12 to 18 months. Since then, I have regained complete muscular control of my feet, but I do not have 100% feeling in my feet. Also, my legs feel heavy and it is sometimes difficult to walk. My brain says go, but my legs wont fully respond.
