Every three months I get a Zoladex shot in my stomach. It’s actually a beed deposited below my skin that blocks my estrogen for three months. This is what puts me in menopause, brings on the hot flashes and leaves me bruised for a week. It’s the most painful shot I have ever received and according to my nurse its the most painful shot she gives. Bring on the pain! In case you forgot what this shot looks like I included a picture….

    Boy….. are you giving me an education! I thought when you emailed me telling me you were “CANCER FREE” and had finished “CHEMO _ RADIATION etc”. I thought you really were done with it all and could get back to a normal life! how long will you have to continue getting “stuck”?

    You MUST keep showing that darn “needle”! Haha! Gives me flashbacks…ugh:( I’m sorry, sister. That’s the only benefit of having the hysterectomy, is not having to get my shot. If it makes you feel any better, I have big bruises on both my outer thighs from the fat grafting they did for my reconstruction last Friday…so we are bruised together:( I hate it for us, but I’m glad we’re not alone. Love you sister! xoxoxoxox
