I had my first Decapeptyl (monthly injection) on 24/2 and the next one is booked on 25/3. The flare up was horrendous and I passed out twice because of the pain even I took the max dose of painkiller I had been prescribed. Well I read about the flare here (my doctor didn't tell me anything about the flare) so I understood and I realised it should pass in a few weeks and it was unfortunate I had it during the my painful week so the flare weeks were hell.
Well the flare hell is gone (I hope). I was given HRT which made me suicidal so I stopped (by GP) as I don't have menopausal symptom yet anyway.
At the moment I have very bad mood swings, frequent migraines, 24/7 nausea, fatigue. Last weekend I felt bit better and decided to do a bit of gardening. I got so many event coming in April and my husband work gets one of the busiest time of the year. I can't get depressed at home. I am having injection in order to manage the pain not gaining many side effect.
When I had Zoladex 3 years ago I had frequent migraines that is why the consultant gave me Decapeptyl instead of Zoladex. As I have frequent migraines with Decapeptyl anyway plus more side effect I would rather go back to Zoladex.
I rang my consultant secretary but couldn't get through to her today and I can talk to my (decent) GP only on Friday.
Does second injection likely to give me side effect stronger at the beginning of few weeks again? Or should my body got used to Decapeptyl by then?
I am wondering if I go ahead to have second Decapeptyle next week or cancel the injection, or push to change to Zoladex.
What would you advice please?
Thank you xxx
