I am calling all of you wonderful Women who are on Zometa to discuss your treatment plan on Zometa.
I have been on it now for a year of monthly infusions and now my new Oncologist wants to start weaning me off of it. He stated that "they do not know the effects of it long term other than a potential risk of Osteonecrotic Jaw. It is a very potent medicine and when used for osteoporosis, it is usually given just once or twice.
My schedule is to receive now every 2 months for 6 months and than every 3 months for a year and then re-evaluate.
I am just curious to know what others are doing and what their Docs have said about this drug.
It is so difficult at times like this when there are no straight forward answers and like many on this road, a lot is very unclear.
I appreciate your feedback,
