Detailed Answer:
Hello

After going through the medical derails provided by you I understand your concern and I would like to tell you that you need to take a cardiac clearance by personally consulting a cardiologist. Few tests like echocardiography or stress test will be required to see cardiac fitness status only after this the cardiologist will give you written prescription there by clearing by our for surgery.

In the other hand Degarelix is an antineoplastic drug used for the treatment of prostate disease. Whether or not it can be a substitute for surgery will solely be decided by your treating doctor as it depends on various other factors.

Hope this information will guide you properly.

Kind regards
