Hi kt1966 the second Zometa for me had hardley any side effects. The first was very simalar to your experience. Drunk heaps of water the days leading up to the infusion and took some Panadol just before, seemed to do the trick. Good luck this time :)
Just moved into a new/old house for a fresh start down here in chch. Love it........ It's going to be a cold week :)

Hi Kiakaha. Hope you've got some good heating! Fun to be in a new house (even if its old)- was your last house damaged by the quake?

My onc says my zometa infusions are too far apart to 'get used to', so has prescribed that I take anti-nausea tabs & nurofen for 2 days before hand & during to get my levels of it up. I'm still not looking forward to it!

I need to go out and do some outside jobs before the horrible weather hits. I'm off to the Gold Coast on Friday, my hubby is working there at the mo. Hopefully the weather will be warm & sunny Smile

Hope everyone had a nice long weekend.
