I am currently being treated for ovarian remnant syndrome. My remnant formed follicles that caused a stenosis of one of my ureters. My doctor does not want to do additional surgery. He wants me to stay on the Lupron therapy until I go through natural menopause (probably 3-6 years). I am currently receiving add-back therapy (Vivelle Dot .025 mg), which has me hormonally feeling well. I am worried, however, about the possible long-term side effects of this drug. Particularly how it may be affecting my pancreas. My mother died of pancreatic cancer. Any insight anyone?
