I’m scheduled for a zometa infusion next week for osteoporosis. Has anyone had the infusion done anyplace other than their arms. Lymph nodes were removed from both arms so I’m hesitant to have the infusion in my arm. Thanks for any input.

Dont let them convince you that arms are ok,they are not! It's your arms you have to live with not theirs!

Can they infuse in the leg. Ask. I get foot draws.
