Lupron injections before TVH

My hysterectomy is scheduled for March 2012. My doctor is wanting me to start Lupron Depot injections, 1 time per month forthe next 4 months, in hopes of shrinking my uterus so that I can have a TVH. I am terrified of these injections, all I am reading is bad side effects...that last way past stopping the meds. has anyone else tried these injections, if so how did they work for you?

Re: Lupron injections before TVH

I've been on Lupron since July and it's changed my life, all for the better. I chose to start with a one-month shot, because I was concerned about side effects, and I had NO pain for the entire cycle. We scheduled my hyst and I had a three-month shot so I wouldn't have to go back each month.

My side effects were very manageable--hot flashes, night sweats and some weird memory things--and seem to have resolved.

Good luck!

Lupron injections before TVH

thanks, the reviews on this medication is very scary. I actually canceled my appointment to get the injection, so I could do more research. You didnt have any of the joint and bone pain?

I've had no bone or joint pain--or, rather, I've had no new or increased bone or joint pain. After many years of running around on hard courts and ball diamonds, I'm creakier than your average 40 year old!

Re: Lupron injections before TVH

I am scheduled for hysterectomy in Dec. , I just received my first injection of Luperon last Monday; and so far I'm not experiencing any terrible effects. I do feel some joint pain, and some spotting. But that's it so far so good. I hope it doesn't have bad side effects on you. Main goal-Luperon shrinks fibroids!

Thanks...I am so scared if these injections! Even the FDA has listed lupron as one of the most dangerous drugs on thee market...scary!

Re: Lupron injections before TVH

You know, honestly I didn't know that. I believe that the length of usage is key though. It is best to use for short periods of time (I think). Hang in there! And thanks for the info

Re: Lupron injections before TVH

I am taking Zoladex injections - very similar to Lupron - for 6 months to shrink my fibroids so I can have an LSH next year. I've had 3 injections so far and other than the usual menopause side effects - hot flashes, night sweats, etc - I'm feeling better than I have in years. I have extremely large fibroids (largest is 24cm).

However, my doctor prescribed me an "add back" hormone (Prempro) that I take everyday to alleviate the menopause symptoms. it's a low dose estrogen that doesn't interfere with the shrinking effects of the Zoladex.

The good news is that fibroids are shrinking and I feel fine. If the injections enable me to have a less invasive surgery, I'll be thrilled. So far, so good.
