Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
I am 51 years of age and only have 1 ovary left as I had a hysterectomy in 2004. I saw my gynecologist for my yearly and it was timely as two weeks prior I was having tenderness in my ovary. She did an ultrasound two days ago and I am waiting on the results. I was prone to cysts, which is why only this ovary remains. I have been on Latuda for approximately several months and have not had any blood work done yet. I am wondering if prolactin levels can cause cysts to occur and if anyone has experienced this.
From this study (1 month ago):
My father received an infusion of zometa and a three month shot of Lupron, four days later he had renal failure and was put on dialysis.
From this study (1 month ago):
Urine has smelled like I ate asparagus for past 2 weeks. (None has been actually eaten) Got second lupron shot 22.5 mg about 3 weeks ago and that evening slipped on ice and fell on injection site. Onset of odor was preceded by sharp tin foil taste in mouth for about 4 days that occurred when eating or drinking anything except water or toothpaste. I eat probably more than recommended but irregular timeframes( I'm 24 hr on call). Have gluten intolerance( had that before shots). Been eating lots of fresh honey. Sporadically take add back to aid with hot flashes. .625 mg flattened oval purple pill.
