Last day on the day oncology ward


This is me getting my last Zometa infusion to help my bones remain strong. A common side effect of Arimidex (aromatase inhibitor) is (a tendency toward early onset) osteoporosis.

The kicker with Zometa is that if you take it for too long it increases your chances of bone fractures at the joint – as opposed to keeping your bones healthier. Side effects oh side effects.

My oncologist checked my bone density and as I was just within normal limits, I’ve gone off it. You can also take Prolia which you can inject (or get injected) into subcutaneous fat.
