Re: Zolindrome infusion

I'm on 6 x EC with Zometa on my 1st, 3rd and 5th cycle then they are going to change it to the tabs for 3 years. I have heard the tabs are difficult so will have to see how they go.

No problems with the infusion apart from tiredness so hopefully you will be able to tollerate it a lot better than the tabs, it seems to have way less side effects than the tabs.

The infusion takes about 15 mins and you have it after your chemo, you should be fine with it😊

Re: Zolindrome infusion

Hi minimad

Do you mean Zolendronic acid?, it's a Bisphosphate used to prevent recurrence in your bones.

If this is it then some people feel a bit achy, headache, fever - a bit like the flu. I don't experience them but I do feel tired for a few days. I have it every other chemo cycle at the minute. I think the infusion is fairly well tollerated. After chemo I go on a tablet form for 3 yrs but these aren't as well tolerated so will have to see. If tabs don't suit then you go back on infusions.

There is a rare side effect where part of your jaw sort of dies, it is difficult to treat. You need to see your dentist first, if you need any treatment you need to do it before you start or it has to be stopped 6 weeks prior to any invasive dental treatment.

Look up Zometa - it's the same thing just easier to spell😁
