I'm due for my second implant on Wednesday and I wondered if it would make my hot flushes get any worse. I seem to be getting them more and more the nearer I get to the injection. Can anyone help me with this please.
I would ask your GP and they might suggest Ciproterone or Provera both of which are prescribed for hot flushes in PC patients.
Hi Seamus 47
Thanks for the info, I will give the natural method a try first before even attempting to contact my GP.
Hi, provera kiboshed the flushes for me, quite spectacular improvement, was going out with two towels, now no need for anything. Good luck.
Well I had it done yesterday and it was not the most pleasant of experiences as it took the nurse over a minute of sticking the needle in and wiggling it around. She kept saying that she could not get it into the right place. I did start to worry if we were going to be there all day but she managed it. It was then she said I needed a blood test for my thyroid, again she inserted the needle but couldn't get any blood out of me (why does a stone come to mind.) From being made to wait outside for 20 minutes before going in to all the wiggling about of needles, I'm glad I've now got 3 months respite.
