I am a 65 year old male and an ostomate. Have had three injections of Eligard (6 month dose). The reason for the eligard/ leuprolide injection is advanced prostate cancer which is inoperable. Developed low iron anemia after 1st injection and ended up having a blood transfusion. Tried iron supplements (ferrous gluconate) but it caused very severe stomach pain. Now trying to adjust my diet to get more iron.
Appreciate any comments form anyone with a similar issue. Thanks.
