Invasive ductile breast cancer: What should I expect?

I'm 51, diagnosed earlier this year and after lumpectomy and radiation started zoladex injections for ovarian suppression with an AI. The shots are once a month. I'll be on them until natural menopause – maybe two years. I don't mind the shot, they numb the skin before they give them so you really don't feel them – but they are in the stomach.

Thanks for the info. I'm still waiting to find out if they're going to recommend the injections or not. But I'm glad to hear they aren't painful. My oncologist said it had to be given by an oncologist because it could be painful if they didn't do it correctly. That was just enough to scare me. 😂
