I had my first zoladex injection on Thursday.
Last night I was admitted to the hospital for about 7 hours after I rang nhs direct and after explaining what was happening.
On Sunday I started feeling like I had the flu was having shivers, this continued from this then on. I woke up on Monday and my bones were all really aching so bad and this has continued.
Anyway yesterday I was feeling really unwell I had a little sleep in the day. Last evening at about 7pm my feet were feeling odd I had socks on and took them off and my feet were huge I don't have a ankle! Then I started pins and needles on my feet I tried walking on them and they wouldn't go and I started to worry so I called nhs direct went through all the questions and next thing the lady said she is sending a ambulance.
They arrived and said my ankles were very swollen and the pins and needles had spread up my legs so they took me in to hospital because they weren't sure if it was zoladex or a reaction to some of my other medication, after blood tests and observations they decided that these are side effects of zoladex.
I have slept most the day today and woke and my ankles are still really swollen and sore, my hands are swollen, my body aches, bones hurt and I have this sensitivity that It's painful if clothing rubs against my skin?
What I want to know is has anybody had these side effects and how long they lasted? As I'm seriously wondering if I want to have the next injection as the side effects are just so awful it's a lot to deal with on top if my endo and Adenomyosis pain.
Thank you for anyone that reply
