can't i get the shots every 6 months
There is a lupron that lasts 6 mos, your doctor had a reason he ordered the 3 mo type. There could be a cost factor involved. Sometimes its cheaper to take a med more often. I don't know if that's the reason this time though. I would ask my doc if I were you.
The dosing frequency probably depends on the protocol of treatment you are on. It's best to discuss with your oncologist whether a longer interval between shots would be okay.
