I had my first injection of Zoladex 3 months ago with a low dosage HRT. This reduced my pains and swelling but of course did not suppress my hot flushes and skin break out. I have just had my second round of the injection to tie my over for another 3 months with a different HRT and within 10 day I have gained (according to the scales) 8 pounds!!! I stopped taking the HRT after day 4 of this new drug as the dramatic increase has knocked me and really got me down. To give you some background, i go to the gym 5-6 days a week and am on meal plan and eat very well. I am gluten and dairy free and whilst i am strict with my diet I will have some dark chocolate or a biscuit here or there but not enough to gain that much weight in ten days. I have gone from 8 stone 2 to 9 stone. I appreciate that i am swollen at the moment as my ovaries tried to switch back on in between the injections and now are trying to switch off again but i am feeling exceptionally low and down about this. I had Zoladex when I was 22 and it did not affect me like this and I am 28 now.
I read other peoples stories who lost loads of weight so why do I feel like I am the only one that gained?
Any advice or help please?
