My copy of MIMS lists tiredness and weight gain as 2 of the many side-effects associated with Zoladex implants. If you have already tried slimming diets and possibly also exercise, then I am also at a loss because you cannot do without the implants which are combatting your breast cancer. It may help to discuss with the oncologist who is treating you, if you are allowed to do exercise (possibly less strenuous exercise like going for walks or swimming or yoga) to help to combat the effects of the treatment. But please only do exercise if your doctor approves it.
Holding thumbs that you will start losing some weight with the exercise.
