    Bone strengthening drugs

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I'm taking Zometa, a bone strengthening drug for advanced breast cancer. The first treatment was harsh and I was in bed for a couple days with bone pain and flu symptoms. I've now had 3 IV treatements of the Zometa and side effects are less with each treatment, but still have lack of energy. Anyone else experience this? I'm also on Chemo shots monthly. (Faslodex)

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
