Zometa infusions to help prevent bone loss from cancer treatments
Have my first infusion on Monday. Since I have reactions to most meds, I have bad fibromyalgia, am a little worried about how sick I will be. Have something important to do on Tuesday and can't be sick. Should I postpone it?

I agree with Oilermama about hydration, also you will getting an infusion in a setting with people to help if needed.
@baby99, I would ask your oncologist about whether to postpone the Zometa injection or not.
I agree with @colleenyoung that you should consult with your oncologist. I also thought you might be interested in this information about zometa and joint pain: https://www.cancer.net/coping-with-cancer/physical-emotional-and-social-effects-cancer/managing-physical-side-effects/joint-pain
