zolidex for chemically induced menopause

Hiya just looking for some advice - I'm 30 years old and I have decided to have a hysterectomy due to my hormones running riot and pre cervical cancerous cells being found - I have started my zolidex injections and am into my 6th month now - they seem to be working but I was just wondering if anyone else got really bad headaches and a general not with it feeling and I have become very forgetful - is this normal? I have battled with mental health but this seems to be a lot better since starting this - The plan is to have my hysterectomy in just over a months time . Just wanting some general advice - thankyou x

You poor thing.

I had Zoladex 7 years ago. It's awful. Get your hysterectomy asap. It's not nice, but if I knew now what I knew then I'd have had a full hysterectomy!!!

Just try to keep happy. Easier said than done I know.



HI, I had zoladex injections 25 years ago and went through the mill with them. I had big problems with my mental health after that and my personality changed!! So you could be right. I have just been offered that option again and I refused it point blank because it wasn't right for me. But good for you for trusting them. Keep going and go back if you don't feel they are right for you.
