Lupron Side Effects: Week 1

October 14, 2017

 

To find out why I had to have the Lupron shot and how I felt on the day I had the shot, click here.

 

Here is how I feel on Day 2:

 

1.) I woke up with slight flu-like symptoms.  When I say slight, I mean it really isn't bad at all.  I don't know how else to describe it.  My stomach feels like the small tiny flu piercing pains, but that sounds bad.  Just feeling a little off.  I felt pretty nauseous in the evening.

 

2.) I had no headache this morning, but it has creeped back slowly.  It turned into a raging headache in the back of my head and neck at night. Again, no coffee, so it could be a caffeine headache. I drink coffee regularly, 2-3 cups a day.  I also drink a lot of Pepsi, gross. Anyways, I've cut them out of my diet cold turkey.  I've tried this before and my headaches were intense.  This is why I think it's a combination of both the Lupron and caffeine withdrawal. 

 

3.) My period is VERY light!!! 

 

4.) I was constipated in the morning and had diarrhea at night. 

 

Here is how I feel on Day 3:

 

1.) I woke up feeling great! 

 

2.) Slight dry mouth.

 

3.) Headache came back at night and felt a little off, but not bad. 

 

Here is how I feel on Day 4: 

 

1.) My period is barely there!

 

2.) I woke up feeling fine, a little achey.

 

3.) Slight back of the head headache throughout the day. 

 

4.) Slight dry mouth

 

5.) Went to meet my husband for lunch and felt a little nauseous.  I had to run to the bathroom twice with major diarrhea.  We had to leave early!  

 

6.) Had a stomach ache the rest of the day. 

 

Here is how I feel on Day 5:

 

1.) MY PERIOD IS COMPLETELY GONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It feels soooooo so so good to be free of wearing a pad!  I slept naked last night, and it was GLORIOUS!   No more running to the bathroom!  

 

2.) Woke up with a stomach ache.  I felt better after eating a small breakfast. 

 

3.) Stomach ache in the evening.

 

Here is how I feel on Day 6:

 

1.) I noticed that I don't have any armpit B.O.!  I even had hubby get in and take a sniff!  He couldn't smell anything! This is amazing!

 

2.) I woke up achey

 

3.) My lower back hurts.  I have Degenerative Disc Disease in the lower disc of my back, and it has been acting up lately. 

 

4.) Pretty good day!

 

Here is how I feel on Day 7:

 

1.) HOLY SHIT 1 WEEK DOWN!!!! WAHOOO!

 

2.) My lower back still hurts.

 

3.) I have dry mouth and have been drinking water like a fish!

 

4.) I had a great day! 

 

5.) Did I mention how amazing it feels to NOT HAVE MY PERIOD!?! It's tremendous!
