Monthly Zoladex injection!

Hello

 

I am due to start having monthly Zoladex injections as of tomorrow :O 

 

Apparently no dose has been stated in the letter, just that it is monthly Zoladex.  Are there variable doses for the monthly injection or is it just a standard dose? Do you know?

 

Also, would it be recommended to have a numbing cream/spray on beforehand?  Or not necessary?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi

Yes I think its just a standard dose. Would recommend getting some cream to numb the area as it can hurt abit.

I’ve been having them since October. Not sure if dosage varies though.

My practice nurse is very good and my most recent one I didn’t feel at all.

If you apply the cream they’ll inject there. Below the belly button to the side slightly. Just remember to apply cream to the opposite side next time.
