Starting Zoladex


I am due to have my first Zoladex injection next week, just ahead of going on holiday.

Can anyone tell me what kind of side effects I am likely to get at first, and how soon these are likely to kick in? I don’t want it to ruin my holiday!

Thanks for any help.


Zoladex puts you in menopause, so might be hot flashes? night sweats? But you might not get any side effects.
I’m not a lot of help am I? Anyway, have a fantastic holiday! x x

Thanks ladies :slight_smile:

I’m hoping I’m lucky and don’t get any SE. My oncologist suggested having my ovaries out, but I wanted to start with the injections to see what to expect. Then I’ll start on the exemestane when I get back.

Thank you for the holiday wishes!
