I was diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in march 2007 andhave had chemotherapy, lumpectomy and lymph node clearance and radiotherapy. I am 40 years old and for the next five years i will be taking arimidex and having a zoladex implant. I have been receiving these for the past 8 months; however i have now just had the 3monthly implant of zoladex for the first time. I have had some really undesirable side affects that i didnt really have with the one monthly implant. After comparing the info sheet about the 2 implants; the 3monthly implant says only to be used by men and NOT women! After a few phonecalls i have been 'half' reassured that im ok, but i would love to hear from any other women that are having the 3monthly implant and how it is affecting them? I feel great that i have finally come through all of these awful treatments and have lots to look forward to (inc. a month in florida in may/june) but somehow i just feel fed up and annoyed most of the time...and worse still i have lost my sex drive; which used to be very high..and even though my husband is a very caring and patient man i still feel angry and guilty that i dont feel like the woman i was before cancer. PLEASE HELP!!
