On my 4th treatment. My first treatment I had MANY side effects, headache,aches and pains etc. I read if Zometa is given over a 30 minute time span instead of 15 side effects are minimal. I don't know if it is coinsidence or my body got used to the drug but I don't have any side effects other than Fatique since changing to the 30 minute dosage.

A lesion was found on my pelvis after a pet scan. I received radiation, chemo and zometa. After six months the lesion was gone. I have to continue taking zometa by i.v. for up to two more years.

I have had a treatment of Zometa once a month for the last 2 years. Side effects have been the same every month. Flu like feelings sore swollen feet and hands. Very tired and usually down in bed for two days.
