How much Lupron is she getting? When we started Beasley on it, he
started with 150mcg of the monthly Lupron. We went for several
months with no obvious improvement and doubled it to 300mcg per
month. Within a month or so, it began to have an effect. After
several months of 300mcg, we dropped back down to 150mcg and he's
been doing well on that amount since.

because of the involvement with the vena cava. I'm on my third month
lupron depot and 2 weeks of melatonin treatment and her vulva is
still enlarged with no hair regrowth at all but she is very active
playing with her 6 room mates and her mom and dad as well as having a
healthy appetite. I have a pic of her attached but the date should be
July 26, 2001. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
