Hi,
I would like to help but require some additional information.

What hormone therapy did you receive?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I was given a shot in my stomach, I believe it was the drug lupurion. Also the Doctor gave me a perscription of 14 pills that I'm not sure what they were, but I'm sure that they went along with the shot. I recently had an appointment with him. We discussed the out come of the surgurey and decided that a second shot in January was not needed. Will this drug get flushed out through my body, and have no lasting effects of the shot.

Hi,
Yes the drug will get eliminated from your body and not leave any side effects. This drug has a relatively short half-life, which means it gets eliminated pretty quickly from your body. I would not worry too much about the effects of this injection. Continue to follow regularly with your doctor regarding your treatment.
