Stage 4 endo, diagnosed a few months ago, large chocolate cyst removed along with ovary. Consultant strongly recommended Zoladex but I'm very frightened about the side affects. Hysto was also mentioned although they said that wasn't an option right away. I have 2 children and have been told that the Zoladex may affect my chances of having more. My GP is not v knowledgeable and said they would defer to what the consultant has recommended.
Since the diagnosis I have started to lose my hair, I feel tired all the time no matter how often I rest. I have also recently become achey with niggling abdominal pains (like before the endo was diagnosed) and periods of severe pain that takes you're breath away. Menstrual cycle has become shorter but much much heavier.
I haven't started on the Zoladex even though my surgery was a few months ago. I'm so scared of side affects, have heard it can make you gain weight too.
Anyone who has had the course of Zoladex ( consultant recommended 9 month course) help with any info- shall I just continue the wait and see approach. I have been thinking of getting a second option from an endo specialist but have no idea about how to get a referral to an Endo specialist centre or whether it would even be allowed or needed.
