Zometa: do I need it?
Hello BC community .
Im a 30-something w/ stage IIb, had chemo surgery and now rads. My MO is suggesting I start Zometa when I begin taking Verzenio in a month. Im already on Zoladex.
I have a hx of a dental implant as a child and lots of other dental work, though I have great oral hygiene and haven't needed anything in years (just bad dental genes). Im nervous to take Zometa bc of the jaw necrosis (!!!!!) risk and would rather not take another med if im honest.
What are other people doing instead? Is bone loss a huge issue if you eat right and take vitamins and do strength training? I’m young and lift weights regularly, and would stick to a lifestyle change if it meant I could not take another med
Looking for alternatives.
