In brief: Low testosterone

The effects of these medications are to lower the male hormone, testosterone, in the body.
This would be a temporary and reversible effect. There should be no long term consequence. You should have full recovery within 1 month of stopping the medicine.

Synthetic estrogen, and bicalutamide, an androgen receptor blocker are generally not used in standard risk prostate cancer, but usually relapsed or high risk (gleason >/= 7; psa > 20 ng/ml).
The drugs are temporary, metabolized and gone. Feminizing effects and blood clot risk short; decreased libido and gynecomastia, depending on duration of use, can be reversed.
