Hello all!

I got my first Lupron injection yesterday, this is day two without hormones and no one has been injured yet!!

I have a question though...
I have two gyn's (long story)
Gyn #1 did the hyst and she will continue to
do my annual exams...gyn # 2 is the lupron guy...

Gyn# 1 -- office called this morning with mammogram results,
"probably benign, needs follow up within 6 months"

This is my left breast, I had a lumpectomy in 1992, benign.
I questioned the woman on the phone, she said it appeared
that there are "post-surgical changes"
I've had clear mammograms annually since '92, why now for a change? HRT?

Any comments, thoughts, will be welcome.

Thank you all for being here!!!

Thanks for my giggle of the day, Sabrina -- in my household, there's damage when I'm ON my estrogen...

I've wondered how you were doing. What did they find with your CT, and are you doing any better than you were with all the nausea, etc.? Sounds like they're figuring it's a return of the endo :dragon:.

It wouldn't surprise me that there would be breast tissue changes, not just with estrogen replacement, but also following the hyst in general. Even with estrogen replacement, your hormone balance has changed (you don't come close to actually replacing all the estrogen that you manufactured before your surgery) so there may be changes due to that, or some scarring that's easier to see with the newer mammo equipment that's now on the market.

Let us know how the Lupron is working, OK?

Hi Audrey!

The ct came back normal, that's why I'm on the Lupron.

The effects of the contrast were pretty long lasting....I had intestional upset for about two weeks, lost another 4 lbs, so in the end that's ok with me.

Hubby and I are walking a mile together in the evenings, I think that helps me mentally, hopefully physically, too!

You pretty much put my mammogram concerns to rest--I never considered newer technology--that makes a lot of sense.

Now--how about you? Have you been able to get a dr yet?
You had promised an update....let's hear it!

Day 4....

Pain is now constant and the vicodin doesn't last more than 2 hours after i take it...
woke up this morning, got a cup of coffee, dh asked me a question and i just started crying....not sobbing or anything, just tears running down my face--he left in a hurry LOL

The nurse said the pain would intensify for a few weeks, then die down...I know I can tough it out.

They will start add-back Progesterone next month with my next shot--that should help with a lot of these symptoms.

This better work!!!
