    My question is: how long does it take before the side effects from the Lupron injection to show up and how long does it take for the testosterone levels to drop to the point of no libido?

    71 year old male with prostate cancer. Active surveillance for 6 years. Gleason score of 7 with last biopsy two weeks ago. The doc says I now need to treat it with either surgery or radiation. Lupron injection in either case. One injection now and one at the 3 month mark, then will have surgery in November.

    My question i: how long before the side effects from the Lupron show up and how long does it take for the testosterone levels to drop to the point of no libido?
