Just had my gynae appointment today. 6 months of zoladex and i am done. Although virtually pain free, other side effects have ruined me. I sat in this appointment today crying and desperate for answers, reassurance and maybe a future plan. I am still really annoyed that i wasn't really given many options or was warned of the effects this drug would have on mental health. Wasn't even the consultant who saw me today, even though the reception staff sat me in a side room as i was hysterical in the waiting area. The member of the gynae team i saw, totally swerved all my questions and complaints. She said she didnt feel it was the zoladex/tibilone that has affected my weight, my hair, my violent mood swings etc. They suggested i had a depo implant then and there and then go on my way. No other explanations. Nothing. I didnt want anything else in my body today and just want everything to go back to normal. Ive basically been discharged and told to speak to them again 'when ive sorted my head out'. I am really scared now. The injections and hrt have stopped. I am hoping any side effects will stop. I am scared all the pain will come back. Scared about going from chemical menopause back to normal. I feel really stuck. Pisses me off that she refused to accept that this drug has caused the side effects but then said they are only allowed to give u 6 months of it because of the risks?!? Im sick of seeing different people who all tell you something different and there is no continuity of care X
