My breasts are enormous and sore. I have also gained weight. Im sure this is normal but anyone who quit... can you tell me how long this may last??

You can't really say you quit cold turkey. Estradiol isn't a drug that causes dependence and the proper way to stop it is to just stop it. I stopped it and had no after effects. Since its estrogen that usually causes breast tenderness, I have no idea why stopping it would do that.
