I am having these shots, 120mg every three weeks, since March. I think it is equivalent to Sandostatin LAR? Next week I am having blood tests and my endo will give me the results at the end of June.
I also had the same shots before the first operation, but now the leaflet of Somatuline has been updated, and it says it can be administered by oneself: personally I feel quite scared of THE NEEDLE so, since I have the nurse at 5 minutes from home, by now, I am not thinking about that possibility.
you can find it here: http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcmed.nsf/pages/iscsatgi/$File/iscsatgi.pdf
Maybe if it is a long journey to have it injected, it would be much easier to do it by oneself. Anyone who tries, please let us all know.

Just wondering how everybody's doing? I'm sorry I haven't been on lately. I'm finishing up my B.S. degree, finally graduate the 31st. And truthfully I'm just so fatigued lately I'm not usually online. Pretty sad for a computer major. I'm feeling depressed over here :-( My GH is still elevated, going to the 30mg and I just know it's not going to work.
