Default zometa

My doctor also recommended Zometa for my osteoporosis. I'm supposed to have a treatment every 6 months. My osteo, they think, is due to an abnormal condition of my bone marrow producing too many plasma cells, called monoclonal gammopathy of unknown significance. Whew! <br><br>The day after the zometa treatment, I had a fever and felt sick. THe next day the fever was lower but still there. I sure hope this works.

zometa is not approved for osteoporisis at this time. Most likely it will not be paid for by your insurance. Zometa can be pretty expensive, so be aware that most likely it will come out of your pocket.<br><br>

Default Zometa

I actually was looking for a way to find out more about how Zometa works, having had the injection recently. It was my only option, as the Fosomax had not worked on my backbone during the last year -- actually, the reading indicated it reversed back to two years ago. It still had increased the reading for my hip bones. My only option was Zometa, as I had radiation over ten years ago for breast cancer, and the other med was an injection, but the combination would have increased the possibility of bone cancer.<br><br>Not sure you can respond to this. If so, I am very curious as to how this treatment can last a year. Is it possible to check in six months (not sure my insurance would approve that)? What percentage of those having used Zometa has it helped?
