Re: 37 yrs old- Armidex and zoladex

I have been on Arimadex and Zoladex for almost 2 years now. The worst side effect to me is the hot flashes and bone pain. But, these are still better than the side effects I was having on Tamoxifen... I didn't tolerate it at all!! I hope all you Pink Sisters have a Blessed and Merry Christmas!

Thanks Emma - the night sweats are a pain as they wake you up so get disrupted sleep most nights but I know that's the same for most women going through the menopause. But there again I know some people who've not even had those! So fingers crossed you'll be fine. X

Hi Anita, glad to hear you are doing OK and hope your flushes are manageable (as can be). I guess the mind just plays awful tricks when reading others awful side effects and what some poor people go through. Hoping my body copes like yours and I hope you continue to do ok xx

Hi Emma - I've had 8 Zoladex injections  so far & am also on Anastrozole & apart from the hot flushes & night sweats I haven't had any other problems so far so I guess it just depends on the person & not everyone will get awful side affects. Wishing you all the best x

Hi Emma

I've just started having the zoladex injections( about 6 weeks in) in combination with another drug. The injections are an im plant that go into your stomach and are painless. I don't think that I've had any side effects from it, although early days. Also difficult to tell when in combination with radiotherapy as well! I certainly haven't had any joint or muscular pain yet.

The positive side.......keeps those cancer cells at bay?!

Hugs xx

37 yrs old- Armidex and zoladex

A couple of weeks ago I was frantic about starting tamoxifen in the new year but I've since found out they want to start me on zoladex injections and armidex instead as apparently even more effective. Its apparently more potent and side effects possibly worse than tamoxifen (yay, isn't life after bc great!!!!!!). Anyone have any advice that have this treatment? Do you have a quality of life? Pain 24/7? I was a marathon runner before all this crap started, will I be able to run again or in too much pain to walk let alone run??!! Anñnny positive things to say about it??? Anyyyything at all!!??
