Re: Starting Zoladex

Thanks ladies 🙂

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!

Re: Starting Zoladex

Hi Em, I started on zoladex in feb and have just had 4th injection. I have mildish menopause symptoms but am also on exemestane so not sure which has caused them, them being hot flushes, aches and pains, Brittle nails, calcium deficiency but no hair loss and have not put on any weight, in fact lost 8lbs. Compared to others I seem (touch wood) to have miles SE. I am seeing my oncologist on Thursday and am going to ask about having my ovaries out as I really don't want drugs in my system if I can help it. Have a great holiday x x

Re: Starting Zoladex

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

Starting Zoladex

Hi

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.
