Thanks Sue C and Keelybelle
I had my first jab this afternoon and I had got myself a little worked up I must say! 😞 However I had used the Emla cream an hour beforehand and I am very happy to report that it was painless! 🙂 🙂 Was feeling a bit more fragile than normal 😮
Yes its in the tummy. Alternate each month between left and right side, below the belly button. I had to goggle it before I had mine because no one told me either!
Hi again Sue C
Where do they normally give you the injection, is it the tummy? Have managed to find some Emla cream but it's a tiny little tube so not knowing for sure the presise area to be jabbed I may have to wait and use it next time and perhaps go without tomorrow! 😮
You can get it on prescription. Its called Emla cream which you need to put on an hour beforehand and then cover it with a clear bandage, which you can also buy at the chemist or failing that, clingfilm!
Good luck x
Will nip to chemist later and maybe in future will try and get something on prescription if I'm lucky.
Yes I think its just a standard dose. Would recommend getting some cream to numb the area as it can hurt abit.
I am due to start having monthly Zoladex injections as of tomorrow 😮
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
