Anyone onFaslodex?

Hi all

I may be starting Faslodex injections next year and I understand that they are given once a month/4 weekly.

I have a few questions - perhaps someone can help…

Has anyone any experience of organising a holiday/flights around such a schedule?

Is it possible to bring forward/postpone injections by a few days (I’m thinking (hoping) to be away for more than a month)?

Or…

Is it possible to arrange for an injection to be given whilst you are away somewhere?

Would like to hear how others organise their lives around this routine.

Thanks in advance,

S
