    Bone strengthening drugs

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I have Zometa once a month, after the treatment I retain fluids in my body. I was prescribed Laxis, but I took a different route, I stay off of my feet for about 3 days with them elevated and that takes care of the swelling. I try and take as few medications as possible

    Learning how to accept assistance has been a challenge for me. I have always taken care of myself and others.
