20 years ago I had Zolodex injections for over two years to treat breast cancer. Ever since the treatment started I experienced stomach pains and gradually over the years my stomach problems have increased, and now they have spiralled out of control. I just cant seem to keep any food it for very long at all no matter what I eat, even trying soluble fibre and eating my meals by blender is not helping. The doctors have not helped and even though I have told them I feel like killing myself they just tell me to live with it. The last time I went they wanted to give me mint capsules and drugs for depression!
After reading the posts on this site it explains all of my mood swings, depression, and dark thoughts, and makes me not feel so alone. But has anyone suffered with these type of stomach problems from long term use of Zolodex too?
It is so bad now that I have had to give up full time work and have to struggle working from home part time.
Many days, including today, I just don't want to carry on, and I'm taking it out on my husband who does not deserve it and I can't seem to help myself from saying the awful things I say.
They say you should be greatful you are alive, but I'm not alive I'm just existing and if I knew life would be like this I wouldn't have wanted it.
