I have been on monthly zometa for almost 5 years, it has stopped me from having dental work BUT I do NOT think I would be walking and functioning as well as I am without it. Sometimes after a treatment I have flu like sympstoms, sometimes I do not and even feel like I could run a marathon that afternoon after the treatment. I tolerate it well and think it has helped me immensely where other things have not. I would not be doing well without itl. If you want to write to me please feel free to.l

I have metastatic breast cancer through-out my bones,ribs,legs,spine. I have taken this drug for five months and I am starting to feel some improvement. The first dose put me in bed for two days with a fever and body aches. My doctor reduced the dose by half and I was able to tolerate the the side effects more easily. Again I had a fever and body aches but they lasted six hours. The following dose produced no side effects. My physician increased the dose to the full amount. I am tolerating the drug and I have much less pain in my neck. Basically, over time and with patience, this course of treatment seems to be helping.

First treatment, the next day I was in bed with pain all over. The following ones have been with no side affects at all.. I am now in my 7th monthly infusion. This last one made more tired for some reason. I must say I am very pleased with the ease of use, and very satisfied. As far as working, only time will tell. I did not have pain until I broke a bone in my shoulder. That is how the metasteses was discovered. Now have it also in sternum and in back ribs. None of them ever caused my any pain until the shoulder break occurring from attempting to button my jeans... That was the worst pain aside from giving birth! !... It took about 8 months to heal and very little pain when truing to reach up to high..

Had my first Zometa IV infusion a couple of weeks ago. My only complaint seems to be with the fatigue factor since. It seems to be pernicious and it is possible that is linked to some anemia issues. Blood test results are going to be checked again in a few days to see if that is a contributing factor.

I had my first infusion of Zometa three days ago. Spiked a fever day two, severe bone, joint, muscle pain day three, less morning of day four. I hope this works. I can't live on tylenol extra strength.
