I'm 26 and have been seeing specialists for over 18 months and finally had a diagnosis of endometriosis in January. I have the coil, which is meant to help a bit, and I had a laparoscopy and some endometriosis burnt away (plus some adhesions cut). However, I'm still experiencing pain and my consultant recommends Zoladex for 4 months, but is resistant to actually do it due to my mental health.
I'm receiving support from a Community Psychiatric Nurse for some emotion based difficulties I've faced following a break down in relationship with my parents (a long time coming!), issues in my childhood, and some recent crisis points in life. Basically, this last 6 months has been one thing after another, but I'm on the way up. She wants to discuss this with my psychiatrist, who will in turn discuss with me, whether Zoladex may cause me more emotional distress or be more detrimental to my wellbeing than the physical pain is causing. From what I've read and experienced of the pain, I'd rather get started and get the treatment done. But, as I don't know what Zoladex actually feels like or does I wanted to find out more about it from people who do know, in the hope I can make an informed decision (or at least be sure about the one they make).
