Zohra, I had 4 infusions of Zometa after my first treatments. Like your mom, once every 6 months. It helps to strengthen the bones & hopefully prevent bone mets. I was also on Arimidex.

4 months ago, the stinkin Cancer went crazy. In my liver, ribs, spine & some other nodes.

I would try the Zometa. There are some side effects, but nothing like chemo.

Just had my first Zometa infusion yesterday... it's to protect the bones b/c some meds for bc can harm bones. My infusion went fine. Had it through an IV, since I don't have a port. No side effects to report. Ta, Marie
