After being diagnosed with my second DVT I was put on blood thinners and to my horror I bleed so bad that I felt like I was bleeding to death. After having an ultrasound, I was diagnosed with multiple uterine fibroids seven months ago and have been having zoladex injections for the last six months in preparation for a hysterectomy. I was told originally that zoladex shrinks the fibroids and stops all bleeding and once the zoladex is stopped the fibroids grow again and bleeding resumes. I've just been told that I am not getting an further zoladex injections and that I no longer qualify for surgery. The doctor tells me that only "normal periods will resume and that could be months off. The fibroids should have disappeared by now." What he fails to understand is that the last injection was two weeks late and bleeding started back then and hasnt stopped. My understanding of Zoladex with fibroidsm is that is is used to shrink fibroids to make it easier for surgery and that once you stop zoladex things begin to grow inside again. I'm not sure who or what to believe on this drug anymore. Anyone out there in this situation?
