Re: Lupron injections before surgery

Also to add to my lupron paragraph, lupron did not help with my pain in the past nor did it with this shot. i have endo and that is why i used it.
and I even had a period on it, before, the first two shots i had years ago, I never bled on it. But this one in july I did two months into it, I started bleeding and bled for four weeks till surgery day

Re: Lupron injections before surgery

I had a Lupron shot (just one) before my endometrial ablation two years ago, to shrink the lining of the uterus so my ablation would be successful. It was horrible. I had wicked mood swings, crying jags, the works. Physically, I was o.k. (no hot flashes or weight gain like my friend experienced). I went to my naturopath for a remedy for the mood swings and that fixed it completely. Thank goodness! I don't know whether Lupron did the job it was supposed to, as I ended up having post ablation syndrome :-(. I can't blame the Lupron for that, however.

Good luck with your decision :-)

Re: Lupron injections before surgery

Hi there!

Prior to my TAH I took Lupron injections for six months. It significantly shrunk my fibroid enough for me to be able have a 'c-section' scar vs having a verticle scar. I was able to handle the menopausal side effects such as hot flashes, insomnia, and mood issues with exercise and diet.

Good luck to you!

Re: Lupron injections before surgery

Of course talk to your doc, but since your asking opinions....My doc suggested it, I researched it and freaked. What scared me the most, was it's not a daily pill that you can stop if the side effects are bad. The drug is in your system, can't change it. For me, my doc suggested it to skrink the fibroid, BUT he said it might turn a 6-8" incision into a 4-6". To me...that is minor and no where near worth it.

Good Luck with your decision.
