Default low back pain

I have been receiving monthly treatment of Zometa for over one year now. For six months, it was with taxol and Gemzar. Now, I am just taking Femara. However, recently, I have noticed that about four to five days after treatment I have been having low back pain that lasts about seven day. I have been treating it with ibuprofin 6-8 hundred milligrams every three to four hrs. This lasts about 7-10 days and then subsides so that I will be able to reduce the ibuprofin and then stop taking it. Is this a common side effect? Should I ask my oncologist about reducing the dosage? Thanks for your input.<br><br>Beverly Walker
