Default Zometa side effect

Why are my hands and feet, wrists and ankles stiffening and tunnels for my tendons to these areas plugging up? Two years ago I used Zometa, too. Same side effects. But, my new oncologist did not see these symptoms as a side effect, and put me on it anyway. I can't even move my right thumb.....

Ask your doctor if you have trigger thumb. I have had all my fingers and thumbs lock up. I have had several injections of cortazone(a steroid treatment). My next step is to have a minor surjury to release the tendons which I plan to do one hand at a time. It is an in office procedure. A much better option to fix the problem for good. <br><br>Good luck.
