I had a follow up with my consultant last Tuesday who said that we were to try the Zoladex injections (Previously had two laps and a course of Prostap for 6 months, along with various painkillers and varying hormone treatments). I went to my GP's to have my first Zoladex injection today, only to be told that the nurse I was booked In with is now on long term sick leave and that there is no one else that can do the injection at the surgery.
I live in East Sussex and am a patient at Guildford, therefore cannot afford to make the 170 mile round trip every 4 weeks to have it done at the RSCH and my consultant's secretary is away for the rest of the week, so I've been unable to speak to her to see if they have any suggestions.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can go to have the injection done? I have it with me, so don't need to mess about having to get hold of one - the hospital prescribed it, however, were not able to administer it as I had a 2 hour wait for the prescription at the hospital pharmacy and the gynae clinic had finished when I had been prescribed it.
I have had to administer the Prostap injection myself previously, due to there not being a nurse at my surgery, but really really do not want to have to do that again!
Please, please can someone help with this one as have no idea what else to try!!
