Hi has anyone had zoladex injections? I was advised to have them to protect my ovaries during chemo and stop my periods for the 6 months of treatment to avoid an extra thing to go through every month. However period one post injection one is worst one yet and it’s still going as in still bleeding ten days after started period. Has anyone experienced this? I’m triple negative so not a hormone related cancer. I’m considering not having a second injection….

  • Hi  

    I'm sorry to read that you're having problems since starting zoladex. I presume you've reported this side effect to your chemotherapy nurses.

    As you know the online community is divided up into different support groups, so I hope you don't mind me suggesting that you also join and post this question in the main breast cancer group.

    If this is something that you'd like to do just click on the link I've created which will take you straight to the group where you can start a new post in the same way as you did here, and join in with existing conversations by clicking on reply.

    It would be great if you could pop something about your diagnosis and treatment so far to into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
