Zoladex and Long Term Use
In 1998 I was diagnosed with stage 2a invasive ductal carcinoma with 3 positive nodes when I was 30 years old.  I went through chemotherapy which included Adriamycin, Cytoxan, and Taxol, did 8 weeks of radiation, at which time my cancer was in remission.  I followed up with 5 years of Tamoxifen in 2004 at the age of 36.  I continued to have my monthly period from the time I was diagnosed until I finished my Tamoxifen.  At that time, my oncologist put me on a 5 year treatment with Zoladex injections every three months.  At the end of 2008 and almost five years of receiving Zoladex injections, we relocated to a different state and I had to see a new oncologist.  She immediately took me off the injections and told me that there has never been a study to justify Zoladex being prescribed to me.

In October 2009 at the age of 42 I have started my period again and my body and mind are slowly getting back to normal

My questions are:

1.  Has anyone else had this experience?  If so, have you had severe emotional problems, depression, etc?
2.  Is there truth to what my new oncologist is saying?

Any help or suggestions you can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You.
