Zoladex

Hi, sorry to be a frequent poster. I had a lap 6 days ago, feeling better than i thought but of course not right. I had a zoladex implant/injection whilst under, i can feel this under my skin, is that normal?

AND when i move to turn over in bed i get a burning like pain from it, again is that normal?

My consultant wants me to have 1 a month for 3 months, is this going to happen each time? If so that is going to be a pain in the arse big time with my job.

Hi, Ive had prostap injections, which are very similar - I can feel a long bump under my skin where I had the jab. I've never had the kind of pain you describe from it - more a localised soreness / itching which wore off within a few days. I think its more likely the pain is from your lap - the surgeon has been prodding around inside you, after all! If you're still worried, phone the ward where you had the treatment or see your GP.

hi charliesays, thanks for replying, yes i can feel a long bump under my skin. if the pain is form my lap then i don't understand why one incision (which has the implant above it) hurts more than the others. the pain is defo from the implant because when i touch the incisions and the implant its the implant that is sore, a just under the skin sore :(

but to fully put my mind at rest i shall call the hospital back :)
